It may seem an odd question for your Credit Union to ask, but there's a really good reason.
We never want you to be without access to your funds.
If we detect unusual activity on your account, it alerts our fraud department. If you typically use your credit card close to home, and a charge shows up somewhere else in the world, it could be a signal to freeze your account. By letting us know your travel plans, we can ensure that you have access to your funds when you need them, wherever you may be.
If you’re planning to use your Ripco Credit Union debit or credit card while traveling, and you provide us with your travel information; we can note it to your account.
Please allow at least 48 hours prior to your departure for us to make sure your card(s) are noted with your plans and will be available during that time.
