UCCU Prepares to Offer Apple Pay    

Many members have been interested in knowing if the credit union is onboard to offer Apple Pay – and the answer is yes. UCCU is in queue to provide Apple Pay as soon as Apple expands its service. So far we do not have timeline from Apple, but we will provide more information as we receive it.

 Some things to know about Apple Pay – so far the list of businesses that can and are willing to receive Apple Pay is very limited. These businesses must have near field communication (NFC) technology to accept this form of payment. The reality is that many businesses currently do not have this technology, and some of the business that do have refused to offer Apple Pay at this time – such as Wal-mart, Rite Aid, CVS, and others.

 UCCU believes that payments using a smartphone versus a traditional plastic debit or credit card is likely the future. The credit union will strive to adopt technology, including Apple Pay, as long as your information is protected. Our goal is to provide you with the most convenient way of making purchases and helping you stay protected along the way.

Smart Decision Magazine

The credit union recently published the Smart Decision Magazine Fall edition. The magazine is filled with information to help you and your family be inspired to make smart decisions – both financial and life decisions. One of the great articles in this magazine is about how we can all help to stand up against bullying. This article written by Greg Hudnall, Executive Director of HOPE4UTAH. The article is informative and provides his expert advice to stop bullying in our schools and community.  Click here to view a digital version of the magazine.

Do you know your Medicare options?

The answer is – probably not. That’s why the UCCU Financial Group is offering free Medicare information events held at the UCCU Center on November 12th or December 2nd. The UCCU Financial Group lead by Senior Benefits has teamed up with United Health Care, Select Health, Coventry Health Care, and Regence Health Care to help inform our community about their options during the open enrollment period from now until December 7. Arrive early as seating is limited and get all of your Medicare questions answered by this team of professionals.
