Frequently Asked Questions


First, let’s cover the basics:

  • Have you enrolled in City CU’s online banking?
  • Did you enter the correct user name and password?
  • Are you unable to access your account via both online banking and the mobile app?

If you answered yes to these questions (or just can’t remember your password), follow these simple reset instructions:

  1. Click on the “Forgot” link
  2. Enter your user name
  3. Answer your security questions
  4. Enter a new password
  5. Re-enter the new password to confirm

For additional help, contact City CU via Live Chat or email us at members@citycu.org.

Because security is a top priority for us, online banking sometimes requires two ways to verify who you are — this is called two-factor authentication. This usually happens when we see a different IP address when you log in.

Along with your user name and password, we may require a four-digit verification code when you access your City CU account on any device or IP address we don’t recognize. This code will be sent to you via text or phone call. Enter the verification code to complete your log in.

First, register through the Loan Payment button on our home page. This will take you to our Web Payments Center where you can pay on any loan where you are a primary owner or co-applicant. City CU accepts ACH (automatic clearing house) payments and debit/credit card payments.

To ensure your payment posts by the due date, allow at least two business days for the payment to process.

If you already enrolled in web payments but cannot access our Web Payments Center, simply click Forgot Password and provide your email address, or contact us via Live Chat or at (214) 515-0100.

First, confirm you have available funds via online/mobile banking. If you have the funds to complete your transaction, you may have a temporary block on your debit card.

Here’s why:

  • Because security is one of our highest priorities, we continually monitor card activity. When we detect unusual activity on a card, we temporarily block it for your protection and call you to verify the transaction.

Here’s what to do:

  • Contact us via Live Chat or at (214) 515-0100. W can explain the situation and unblock your debit card if it is not compromised.
  • If we find your debit card has been compromised, we will secure your account and debit card.
  • To report your City CU debit card (or credit card) lost or stolen, contact City CU’s Live Chat or call (214) 515-0100 and follow the prompts.

For tips on how to protect your City CU account, visit our Security Center.

To activate your card or change your PIN call (800) 992-3808. Have your debit card ready and select a new PIN.

  • Transfer or withdrawal using ATM: maximum of $500 per day (24-hour period)
  • Transfer or withdrawal using point-of-sale (PIN-based): maximum of $1,000 per day
  • Withdrawal using point-of-sale (signature-based) transactions: maximum of $3,500 per day
  • You may use your card up to 10 times per day

For more information, please refer to our Electronic Fund Transfers Agreement and Disclosures here.

For your security, City CU monitors your debit and credit cards for any unusual transactions — such as a purchase made in another city — and may temporarily block the card from further use until we speak to you to verify the transaction.

While our goal is to make some deposits available immediately, in some cases, not all funds from these deposits are available to you immediately.

For a list of deposit types and their availability, please refer to our Funds Availability Policy in our Account Agreement (page 26).

Yes. Member funds in City CU accounts are federally protected by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The NCUA insures up to $250,000 per depositor, per institution, per ownership category. “Ownership category” refers to account type, usually single or joint. If you have a single and a joint account at the same institution, both are insured up to the $250,000 limit.

This protection is similar to (and for the same amount as) the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (FDIC) protection of bank account funds.

You can use your City CU debit card at other ATMs and not pay a fee! We’re part of the Allpoint, CO-OP and MoneyPass networks which provide thousands of surcharge-free ATMs nationwide. In North Texas, you can conveniently get cash at CVS, Walgreens, Kroger and 7-Eleven ATMs.
