Congratulations to all recent graduates! Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union is here for you during this transitory time in your life, and here to help with any financial questions you may have.
“Opening an account with our credit union is a great way to handle your finances as you prepare for college or a job,” said David Murphy, VP of Finance & Risk. ”Managing your money can be a scary feat, especially when you’re moving out on your own or earning your own paycheck. We work with you so you understand how your account works and what products we offer that may fit your financial needs. We will never push you into a product that isn’t the right fit for your situation.”
“Trust is an important quality in the relationship between you, your money, and your financial institution,” he added. “We will take the time to fully understand your financial situation so you feel comfortable managing your finances.”
Those with an account at MMCCU can take advantage of many features, including several options that make accessing your accounts easy and simple, wherever you go.
- Shared Branching (more on that below!)
- An online banking platform that gives you access to view the amount of your deposited paycheck or to see how much money you spent over the weekend.
- A VISA ® debit card which allows you to make purchases with money in your checking account and gives you access to cash at ATMs in your area.
- Digital payments – our MMCCU debit cards also work in a plethora of mobile wallets, like Apple Pay and Google Pay.
- Control over when and where your debit card can be used with our SecurLOCK Equip mobile app. The app also can provide parents with a way to monitor and limit the use of your child’s debit card.
“Also, by keeping your account close to home, your parents also have easy access to the credit union should you need a few extra dollars to cover your groceries for the week,” said Murphy.
Shared branching is an option that allows you to visit another physical location outside of Marshfield to access your MMCCU accounts.
“You have the option to withdraw cash, make loan payments, or transfer money between accounts,” said Murphy.
In many college towns you may be moving to in the fall, you will find a number of Shared Branching options close to campus.
