When you sign up for online banking, you will automatically have statements placed online. We archive them for seven years. Statements are typically available online by the 3rd of each month. If you need a statement further back than when you signed up for online banking, you may contact PSECU at 800.237.7328. The last two statements cycles are free; however, any physical statement that is mailed to you other than the most recent two statements will cost $5 per month.

Using UPost@Home® also helps keep credit union expenses lower, which in turn helps secure member benefits for the future. These benefits currently include free use of PSECU ATMs for withdrawals/deposits and balance inquiries, up to $20 in surcharge rebates with Direct Deposit (up to $8 without), and free replacements for lost/stolen/damaged cards.

Once your deposit is received and reconciled, your Available Limit will be reset by that amount and this deposit item will no longer appear on this screen. These details can also be viewed by clicking the button that reads "Deposit Details." Once a deposit is received, you can also view the deposit image in your S4 Checking Shares history in online banking.

Memo Post in online banking is a system mode that allows PSECU to "balance the books" and run nightly and month-end programs, while still allowing access to your account and perform transactions. These transactions are recorded and stored and will appear on your account when the system is out of this mode. Differences between being in Memo Post and not include: 1) transactions will post to your account but account history will not update until online banking is out of Memo Post mode; 2) when you set a bill to be paid in Bill Payer, the bill status will not change until online banking is out of Memo Post mode; and 3) access code changes cannot be made until online banking is out of Memo Post mode.
Adobe Flash Player is required to view interactive charts in the Bill Payer Summary and the Visa® Summary.
The History Note feature in Bill Payer allows you to add a note to each payment for any purpose you see fit. For example, you may want to note which quarter your quarterly payment was for, or if you are sending an additional payment this can remind you as you review your account history. Please note that the information you enter in the History Note feature will not be sent along with your actual payment.

The text you include in the History Note will be displayed along with the bill’s online history transaction information when the payment clears. Since this feature is intended to note the purpose of a specific payment the verbiage will be removed for that bill after a payment is sent.

It's easy to set up your Bill Payer just the way you like it. Start by clicking on the Customize Your Bill Payer link located in the quick links section in the upper right-hand portion of your main Bill Payer page. Then just follow the prompts. After you've customized your page, don’t forget to click on the Update Preferences button to save any changes you make.

The Bill Payer Quick Summary section of the Bill Payer service is intended to give you a quick look at important bill information such as outstanding payments, upcoming payments, and any bills coming due soon that you have not yet scheduled.

The Sent for Payment section will show any payments you sent out in the past 30 days that have not yet been withdrawn from your account. This allows you see what payments, if any, are outstanding.

The Scheduled for Payment section shows any payment scheduled to be sent out in the next 7 days. This allows you be aware of any upcoming payments that will be paid from your account.

The Unscheduled (Due Soon) section shows any bills you have coming due in the next seven days but have not yet scheduled for payment. This feature requires you to set up a due date for the bills you would like to keep track of. Due dates can be set up under the Remind Me to Pay this Bill section in each bills Details page. A bill’s details page is accessed by clicking on the bill's name or the magnifying glass icon located in the far right side of bill record
The year information is not shown if it is the current year. With so much important information that is present in the Bill Payer Service we looked for areas where we could save space on the screen, this was one solution.
A green checkmark is shown on your main Bill Payer page in the bill records that are scheduled for payment.
You may delete a bill by clicking the trashcan located in the far right side of the bill record then confirming your request on the subsequent confirmation message.

If you have enrolled in online banking and have checking, begin by logging in and selecting "My Bills" from the top menu. If this is your first bill, click the "Add a Bill" button. Otherwise, click "Add A New Bill" on the right-side menu to add a new merchant.

Step 1 - Search for your merchant: Type the first few letters of the merchant's name and the merchant's zip code and click the "Search" button. For example, to search for "American Red Cross" with an address in Washington, DC 20013, you simply need to type "Amer" into the "Payee" field and "20013" into the first zip code field.

Step 2 - Select your merchant: We will then return any merchants that contain your search queries. Choose the one that matches your merchant information exactly by clicking the name in the "Merchant Name" column. We recommend looking through the entire list as many merchants have more than one address.

Step 3 - Agree to the terms of the payment method: You will be asked to accept the terms of the payment method. Some merchants are paid by paper check through USPS while others are paid electronically.

Step 4 - Supply the account number: To complete the process, you will be asked to supply your account or reference number for your bill. At this time, you have the option to add a nickname, bill number, and category for identification and tracking purposes. You also have the ability to schedule an initial payment.

Text messages can only be delivered to one device which is the mobile phone number on record with PSECU. Message and data rates may apply.

Each device must also be enabled to receive push notifications both in the device settings and on your device list in the "Manage Mobile Device" section of online banking or the mobile app. Each device set to receive push notifications for an account will receive the same set of alerts that are enabled on an account.
