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:
- Click on the “Forgot” link
- Enter your user name
- Answer your security questions
- Enter a NEW password
- Re-enter the new password to confirm
When you open an account with City CU, you agree to maintain available funds at all times to cover any withdrawal. With overdraft protection your purchases are covered for a fee of $5 per overdraft protection transfer. Without overdraft protection, you would incur a $35 nonsufficient funds fee.
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.
- 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. An Associate will explain the situation and unblock your debit card if it is not compromised.
- If the Associate finds your debit card has been compromised, the Associate and our fraud department will work to 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 via www.citycu.org or call (214) 515-0100 and follow the prompts for questions about your debit card.
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.
Why make the trip to a branch when you can securely deposit checks using your smartphone or tablet?
To use mobile banking, download the free City CU mobile banking app (via your app store). If you already have an online banking user name and password, log in with that. If not, you can register your account via the mobile app directly.
To deposit a check:
- Log into the mobile banking app (you can set up easy access using TouchID®, if your phone supports it)
- Sign the check, write your Member number and “For Mobile Deposit Only” on the back
- Enter the deposit amount (make sure it matches the check amount)
- Take photos of your check, back and front
- Click submit – and that’s it!
With mobile deposit you can:
- Deposit a check wherever, whenever
- Access funds within two business days on a check deposited before 3pm CT
- Deposit up to $5,000 a day, $2,500 maximum per check.

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.

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. So, while we like to see you at our branches, save the drive when you need cash!

While our goal is to make some deposits available immediately, in some cases, not all funds from these deposits are available to you immediately.
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 federal protection is similar to (and for the same amount as) the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (FDIC) protection of account funds in banks.
