MasterCard® Check Card

In order to protect the credit union and members from check card fraud, we periodically must block certain geographic areas or merchants that are experiencing high instances of fraud.

NOTE: If you are in the San Antonio area and can visit a UNITED SA branch location, check out our Instant Issue Unique Check Card!
