Home Depot Data Breach

Many of you have probably been following the news in reference to the Home Depot Breach, we at Prairie Federal have been daily monitoring the published lists of cards that have potentially been affected by this compromise. This week we received a list of cards that fell within the window of exposure, which was April 11, 2014 - September 7, 2014. We have sent letters out to cardholders explaining that we have already ordered new cards for them and the date we plan to block the compromised cards. As a precaution, ONLY the compromised debit card numbers have had the daily dollar limits lowered, which is also explained in the letter. As always, keep a close watch on your accounts for any unusual activity. We will continue to keep members posted on any updates we receive.

Money Pass Network Has Arrived!

We have added the Moneypass Network to our Prairie Federal Credit Union ATM Cards. What does this mean for you? Whenever you go to an ATM that supports the Moneypass network you will receive a surcharge free transaction. As always there will be a $1 pass through fee for every ATM withdrawal, but the fee that the ATM would normally charge you will be waived. Moneypass has an app for your Smartphone and a website with an ATM locator to assist you in finding an ATM with the Moneypass network when you are traveling. You can find the Moneypass website if you go to the Links tab at the top of the page on our website. Our credit union has a list of local financial institutions that also participate with this Network, so feel free to call today for locations nearest to you. You can also call Prairie Federal with any questions concerning this new feature that has been added to your ATM card. If you are interested in starting an ATM card stop in and any of our tellers will be able to assist you.
