For the security of our members, Member One cannot transfer money into any account without the member’s account number.

You’ll have to enter the recipient’s email or phone number, and they’ll be contacted to initiate the transfer. There is a fee for external transfers.

- Guaranteed Asset Protection, or GAP, covers the deficiency balance on your loan in the event of a total loss.
For purchase transactions, Member One requires a 20% down payment, we can finance the remaining 80% of the purchase price or the appraised value, the lesser of the two.
No, the max maturity for all of our real estate secured loans is 15 years; however, we do offer some balloon options. This means the loan still balloons at 15 years, but the payments are amortized over an extended period as far as 25 years.
You'll be financing your investment locally and receive fast decisioning based on local underwriting.
You can have as many credit card accounts as you are approved for; however, the cardholder will only receive one credit card per account. If there is a secondary cardholder or authorized user on an account, each person will receive their own credit card.
Credit Card payments are due on the 5th of each month. There is no grace period for payments and a $25 late fee will be assessed on the 6th of each month.
There are three ways to complete a balance transfer. You can log in to our Online or Mobile Banking platforms and navigate to “Cardlink,” visit your local retail center, or call us at 800.666.8811.

Also, any Member One transferred balances are not eligible for promotional rates.
No. You would need to apply for a new card and then complete a balance transfer of your existing card to the new card. Any balances transferred from a Member One credit card account to a new Member One credit card account will not be eligible for the introductory balance transfer rates.
Cashback amounts earned are automatically applied to your account as a statement credit each quarter in March, June, September, and December.
To redeem points, visit CURewards.com. Points can be redeemed for travel, gift cards, and merchandise rewards. While you earn one point per dollar spent, when you redeem your points, the value of the points is equated to $1.25. Your points do not expire unless you close your account. Points can be transferred to another member’s Member Premier Visa Signature Credit Card; however, points cannot be transferred to any other type of credit card offered by Member One Federal Credit Union.
After the introductory rate ends and within the first year of the standard Annual Percentage Rate, we will review your account for a potential rate reduction to a lower APR. Qualification for a rate reduction is based on timely payments to Member One and an increased FICO score to meet the guidelines of the next lowest standard APR rate.
Home equity is the difference between the appraised value of your home and the amount you still owe on your mortgage.
Borrowing against home equity gives you cash on hand to pay for things that matter most, whether it’s a planned home remodel or an emergency need. There are two primary options: a fixed-rate home equity loan, or a home equity line of credit.
Your home equity builds over time, but there are a few ways you might be able to build it a little faster:
- Make extra mortgage payments: If you can afford to make higher mortgage payments than your minimum or even make an extra payment each year, you will knock off money from your loan's principal!
- Home improvements: Making home renovations can increase your value as well. This can be anything from renovating your kitchen to updating your windows to adding new flooring. The list goes on! Some home improvements make a bigger impact than others, so be sure to do your research first!

Simply put, not much. Credit unions issue Share Certificates to their members, while banks issue certificates of deposit (CDs) . Share Certificates are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), while CDs are insured up to the same amount by a different institution. Both are great, low-risk ways to save for big upcoming purchases. With such a high, guaranteed rate of return, they also serve as great short-term investments.
It's important to note that you once you make your initial deposit, if you access that money before the certificate matures, you won't receive all the interest you've earned on that investment. Before opening a Share Certificate, take a look at what other investment and savings options Member One has to offer!
This particular product really is second-to-none in offering low risk, as far as term, and top-tier return. Planning ahead for a dream vacation, college tuition, or something else on the horizon? This could be the financial solution for you! Due to their high rate of return, they also work wonderfully as short-term savings solutions. They work best for those who, because of the withdrawal penalty, can be without that money until the share certificate has matured.
It's a combination between a Share Certificate and an IRA. You get the low-risk benefits of a Share Certificate, combined with the tax benefits of an IRA.
Yes, investing in an IRA counts towards your total annual IRA contribution limit, which is set by the IRS.
A credit score is a three-digit number calculated to indicate your credit worthiness. The higher the score, the more credit worthy you are to a lender. Credit score is calculated from information in your credit report and takes into account whether you have been making on-time payments, your revolving debt use, length of your payment history, and other such factors. It is important to know that your score does not take your age, income, employment, marital status, or your bank account balances into account. You can learn more about credit scores and scoring models from the Consumer Financial Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website.
VantageScore® was founded by the three leading credit reporting agencies – Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. This credit score model was developed by a representative team of statisticians, analysts, and credit data experts from each of the credit reporting companies, and is used by hundreds of institutions, including credit unions, banks, credit card issuers and mortgage lenders. The VantageScore® 3.0, the score that is shown in SavvyMoney, is a newer and more popular version of VantageScore®. It is calculated on a scale of 300-850, with 300 being the lowest and 850 the highest score.
