Traveler’s Checks Discontinued at UFCU

Effective February 1, 2017, University Federal Credit Union will no longer offer the purchase of Traveler’s Checks.

A significant decline in demand over the past five years has led to this decision. UFCU leadership recommends that Members consider alternative forms of payment when traveling. The UFCU Card Services team offers credit and debit cards with the latest chip-enabled technology and 100% liability protection on any fraudulent activity, so Members can enjoy total peace of mind.

Unlike traditional cards, when a chip card is used, the chip generates a unique transaction code that cannot be used again, making it safer and more secure. Learn more about the technology behind chip-enabled cards.
