Loans

Extensions

Loan Extensions are used only when a member is in need to extend the full amount due, and pay a portion. This can be arranged with any loan officer. Keep in mind that you are limited in the amount of loan extensions you are given for the life of the loan. No more than 2 per year, and no more than 4 for the life of the loan. The fee is 15% of the monthly payment. And you must come in to complete the subsequent action form.

How do I change the due date for a loan?

If you want to change the due date of your loan, you must come in and complete a subsequent action form—there is no fee associated with this transaction.

How do I order more coupons?

You can either call any of our locations or email us to have these reordered for you.

What do I need to do to get the payments setup on auto draft?

I’ve received my new Debit Card, what do I do now?

Once you receive your new debit card (this does not apply to the automatic reorder for expired debit cards) you should receive your PIN (Personal Identification Number) within 2-3 days either before or after your debit card. These are not mailed together for security purposes. These come in unmarked envelopes as to not disclose to a thief what it may contain.

RDA/Mobile Deposit

What is Remote Deposit Anywhere (RDA)?

RDA is a deposit service that will allow members to make deposits to their Coosa Valley Credit Union deposit account by taking a picture of a check using a smartphone or tablet through the Coosa Valley Credit Union app. This can also be referred to as “mobile deposit” or “remote deposit capture”.

What are the benefits of using RDA?

There is no need to visit a branch to deposit a check (within allowed limits). With our new RDA service, members can securely deposit funds to their CVCU deposit account through our Mobile Banking app.  

Which mobile platforms are supported by RDA?

Apple IOS & Android OS smartphones & Apple iPads. Phones and tablets must be equipped with a camera. Only the most current and one previous software version are supported. RDA may also work on some Windows and Blackberry phones/tablets but are not guaranteed or supported.  

What if my phone will not allow me to take a picture of the check?

Check your device settings to make certain the Coosa Valley Credit Union app is allowed to access your camera.

Who is eligible?

RDA is available to most checking account members in good standing (excluding Next Step) who are at least 18 years old.  

Is RDA immediately available for new members?

No, there is a 90 waiting period for new memberships. After 90 days, RDA will automatically be added for qualifying members.  

How do Members Enroll in RDA?

Once a member has met the eligibility requirements, the “Deposit” icon will be available in the mobile app.

How does RDA work?

RDA/Mobile Deposit is secure and easy to use.

All checks must be properly endorsed and “RDA and the date (MM/DD/YYYY)” should be written below the endorsement to indicate the check has been deposited via RDA/Mobile Deposit and the date deposited.

How should I endorse a check?

Endorse the check as made payable and add the verbiage “ RDA MM/DD/YY” (the deposit date).

What are my Deposit Limits?

There are daily and monthly limits on the number of checks and the dollar amount members can deposit. Limits may vary based on eligibility, however the standard limit is $2,500.00/5 checks daily and $5,000.00/10 checks monthly. Each check is considered a separate deposit however; members can make multiple deposits in a single mobile session within their assigned limits.

What happens if I exceed my limits?

Contact you nearest CVCU branch location and have the following information available:

  • the actual check (Please do not try to redeposit the check.)

  • time, date and dollar amount of the deposit

  • the email received from cvcurdanotifications@mycvcu.org regarding this specific deposit

What if the dollar amount or # of checks is not sufficient for my needs?

CVCU RDA deposit limits are very generous. RDA will not fit every member’s needs for every deposit. Temporary or one-time increases are not possible. Any checks larger than the deposit limit will not be allowed via RDA and must be made at the teller line, night depository or mailed to a CVCU branch.  

When will RDA deposits be credited to my account?

Each deposit made through RDA should post almost immediately however, there may be delays for checks due to quality of picture or incorrect check amounts.

What should I do with checks after depositing through RDA?

Securely store the check for 30 days before destroying it.

Are there fees for using RDA/Mobile Deposit?

CVCU does not charge fees for the RDA service at this time.
