Visa® Account Updater (VAU)

VAU enables the secure exchange of card numbers and expiration date updates between USSFCU and participating card-on-file merchants. The VAU service takes the most recent Visa® card number and expiration date in our system and updates this information with merchants that have those specific cards on file.** Visa® automatically enrolls USSFCU members in this service. However, you can opt out at any time by contacting Card Services at  or by calling 800.374.2758.

*Usually a purchase fee of up to $6.95 may be charged by the credit union. Monthly inactivity fee of $2.95 after 12 consecutive months of inactivity. Lost/stolen replacement card fee of $5.00.

**Contact merchant(s) directly to find out if they participate in Visa® Account Updater. Visa® Account Updater is a Visa® service; not a USSFCU service.

The USSFCU has been an important part of my financial situation and has provided outstanding service.

Every experience with USSFCU has been extremely good right from the start. Our main account with USSFCU is a HELOC with zero over prime rate, which is almost unheard of. The customer service has always been excellent. And when we asked for a temporary payment break to navigate and reorient professionally due to the sudden and temporary financial im...

Provides excellent customer service and this is demonstrated by their great attention to detail. USSFCU provides excellent financial products and professional communication.

I joined in 1975 when I began my 41 year career in the U.S. Senate. It was a family and still is - one to be depended on in times of need and for advice.

The credit union provides relatively good services and the security updates to the system are noticeable.

All of my children and grandchildren have USSFCU accounts now. I really admire USSFCU and its staff completely, they have always looked out for my interests.

Outstanding online and mobile banking services. Professional, Courteous, knowledgeable responsive staff!

I am very satisfied to belong to this institution and whenever I need support it is good to know that I count on you.

This credit union is the best, I love the customer service and you can't beat the interest rates. I'm happy to be a member of this great credit union.

Great staff helping all the time. Just a very well run company always good service.

Always good service, especially when I telephone in. I have another credit union where, every time I call in, I have to wait a considerable amount of time before reaching a representative. When I worked on the Hill, it always was a pleasurable experience coming to the credit union office, whether to make a deposit or apply for a loan.

Customer service via the phone is very helpful and easy to accomplish requests.

Care about their clients and concerned about making sure they have the best rates and packages.

USSFCU has always been accommodating, easy to work with, and staff are always kind. I have every intention of keeping my account with this bank for a long, long time.

The branch manager introduced herself and was extremely helpful. She stated that if there is anything we ever need to please let her know. Very positive experience!
