Simply download the MyGeorgia App from Google Play or Apple Store.
We only require that you be enrolled in Electronic Statements, your account has been open for at least 30 days, and you're in good standing with the credit union.
You have FULL access to your account. Monitoring your account and making transfers has never been easier! For more details about some of the features and convenience click on Mobile Banking.
Daily Debit Card Limit
Having access to YOUR money has never been more convenient! Locate the closest ATM for withdrawing cash with NO fee or get cash back from your purchase at many large retailers like Wal-Mart and Kroger.
MyGeorgia currently has 8 neighborhood branches (Main Office in Athens, Gainesville, Oakwood, Flowery Branch, Cleveland, Clarkesville, Homer and Clayton) and a HUGE network of CU24 locations.
Imagine this: You've stopped at the store and - just as you approach the counter - you realize that your debit card is missing! Where did it go?! Do you know where you left it? No worries! If you log into the MyGeorgia app, you can "turn off" your card immediately. Luckily, your card fell between the seats and since you just found it you can "turn on" your card and quickly access your money again!
Remote Control Debit Card feature is only available through the MyGeorgia App. To download the App, visit Google Play or the Apple Store on your smart phone or tablet!
We'll let you know if there are any suspicious transactions on your account. Our Debit Card combines the economy of a checking account with the convenience and versatility of a credit card even when you are traveling overseas.
If you are traveling - is your account ready to take you there?
If you plan on traveling overseas:
- Let MyGeorgia know when you’ll be traveling outside the USA a security precaution, if a credit or debit card charge occurs someplace out of the ordinary, your card may be flagged and blocked.
- Double check your account balance, credit limits, and card expiration dates
- Carry a variety of payment options. In addition to your debit and primary credit card, it’s a good idea to have a backup card and a small amount of cash carried separately from the others.
- Make note of issuer's contact number. Before you leave, make a list of the issuer’s phone number for each card. This way, if your cards are lost or stolen, you have their contact information to immediately report the loss.
The Debit Card is only available with our Checking accounts. Please contact us if you have any other questions about the MasterCard Debit Cards.
Call (800) 262-2024 to report your card lost or stolen.
MyGeorgia checking accounts offer checks that can be used to make purchases at many merchants. Some accounts with MyGeorgia offer FREE checks as one of their special features. Accounts that qualify for free checks include the Elite Account, the Money Market Account, and our Teen Account!
What checking account is best for you?
Just because it’s free DOES NOT mean its sub-par!
It is your money - we think you should be able to keep it. Some institutions may charge you for a per-use check fee, debit card usage fee, or monthly statement fee. Not here! There are no charges applied to your account for its monthly use.
This unique account is for our members who may need a little assistance rebuilding their financial reputation. No worries if there have been some mistakes in the past! MyGeorgia is going to try and help you.
6-month Probationary Period
MyGeorgia will monitor your account from the day you open it. Your account can then be converted to a FREE Checking account if there have been no overdrafts, returned items, and your account has maintained a good standing. If your account does have some hiccups along the way, your 6-month probation will reset at the point the account is overdrawn. Your account could be closed if MyGeorgia determines there have been any improper transactions. It is our member’s responsibility to notify the credit union once you have completed the 6-month probation.
Overdraft protection is NOT available on this account.
