Planning for College
College is a time for exciting new adventures. For many people, college represents the first step toward financial independence. From paying tuition to buying books to late night pizza runs, money plays a big part of the college experience. Fortunately, Pacific Service CU has everything you need to make managing money easy.
How To Pay For Stuff
The first thing you’ll need to do is figure out how you want to pay for all the new expenses that you’ll encounter during your college years. With the FirstStep checking account and Visa debit card, you can easily pay the rent, grab a bite to eat, or buy lab supplies. Our FirstStep checking account is designed for members 23 years old and under, and offers ATM fee reimbursement, up to $3 per transaction and $12 per month. So, whether you decide on NYU, UCLA or to study locally, you’ll have a convenient ATM near you.
No credit? No problem! If you’re between 18 and 23 and have a job, you’re eligible for our Visa Starter Card. You can start building your credit history with timely payments. It’s perfect for your online or offline spending needs, and it features a lower rate than most credit card offers you’ll find on campus.
Banking Minus The Stress
With exams, homework and studying to get done, the last thing you need is a sleepless night worrying about how much money you have in your account. Use BranchLine online banking, free mobile banking or ExpressLine telephone banking for 24/7 account information, and you’ll always know where you stand financially. We even offer free eStatements and free bill pay so you can receive your statement no matter how many times you move.
Planning For The Unexpected
Need a way to have your parents transfer money into your account in a pinch? No problem. We accept online transfers from other financial institutions. It’s quick, easy and free using BranchLine online banking.
