Changes to Periodic Payments (Posted May 01, 2013)
Do you have payments scheduled automatically on your account? Previously periodic payments scheduled on a day of the month that fell on a weekend or holiday would take place on the business day following the scheduled date. This process became fully automated on June 1, 2013, meaning that any automated payments you have scheduled at WECU take place in real-time on the exact date they are scheduled for. If you have questions about this change or would like to adjust your periodic payments call our Call Center at 360.676.1168.
Donating to Charities for Disaster Relief (Posted April 18, 2013)
With the recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon, numerous aid requests are popping up online and over email channels. Please be cautious when making charitable donations, we recommend going directly to established charity sites and news sources rather than utilizing search engines or donating through social media sites.
Transaction block at Georgia Wal-Marts (Posted April 15, 2013)

Bank On Washington (Posted March 22, 2013)
As a nonprofit financial institution WECU recognizes the importance of providing low cost, low fee accounts and financial services to the underserved in our community. We recognize that sometimes in life people need a second chance financially. WECU is working with the Opportunity Council, AmeriCorps and eleven other financial institutions in the northwest to provide banking services for community members who have never had an account before or who have perhaps had financial problems in the past. As a part of Bank On we are helping to provide financial services and education for those in Whatcom County who need it most.
Card/PIN Reissue (Posted February 27, 2013)
Are you signed up for E-Notify? Does your WECU Debit or Credit card expire this month? E-Notify users receive email notification anytime a card or PIN is reissued on their account. Most often reissues take place the month that your current card is set to expire. You may also receive this notification if your card or PIN is reordered at your request or as a part of a card compromise. The email notification provides an additional layer of security, letting you know to check your mail for the incoming card or PIN. If your card or PIN is involved in a compromise you will also receive a mailer that includes the details of the compromise.
