You may be aware that CUETS Financial* provides certain financial services in connection with the GLOBAL PAYMENT Mastercard card program. However, the relationship between our credit union and CUETS Financial is ending. As a result, our credit union will no longer offer this product. Please rest assured this change does not affect your credit union account, but on May 22, 2019 your GPC Card will become inactive. You will be unable to use your GPC Card to make any transactions including purchases and recurring bill payments.
Full access to your credit union account and funds still remain accessible through debit, in branch and online.
We appreciate this change is likely unexpected, and will do everything we can to support you through the process.
Here’s what you need to know:
