DNCU Members: How to Use Shared Branching

Here’s some handy information about what to expect when visiting a credit union in the Co-Op Shared Branching Network. First, proper documentation ID and signature are required for ALL transactions. Forms of acceptable ID include: valid, unexpired state-issued Driver’s License – U.S. and Canada; valid, unexpired Passport (all countries) or Passport Card; valid, unexpired Permanent Resident Card or Resident Alien Card; valid, unexpired Matricula Consula Card; valid, unexpired U.S. Military ID.

Second, certain funds are immediately available while others will have a slight delay. The immediately available indicators are: cash deposits, state or local government checks from New Mexico, U.S. Treasury checks, Federal Reserve or Federal Home Loan bank checks, U.S. Postal Money Orders, payroll checks up to $2,500.

The following local indicators will have $200 of the funds available immediately, $200 the next business day, up to $4,800 the third business day, and the remainder the seventh business day. The list includes: state or local government checks from other states; official checks, cashier’s checks; teller checks; bank checks; money orders (non U.S. Postal); traveler’s checks; payroll checks over $2,500; business and personal checks.

Fees in the process:
A good rule of thumb is that you will receive “free” services on the following: deposits, payments, transfers, withdrawals, and history print outs. Expect fees for notary services and coin counting.

The following transactions are not available: foreign checks, cashier’s checks, third party checks, returned checks, collections items, altered checks, or insurance drafts.
