PFCU - Different Than a Bank
On the surface, it might look like big banks and credit unions are a lot alike. In many ways, that’s true. We offer virtually all the same technology, products, services, convenience and security as big banks. But if you dig a little deeper, you quickly discover some obvious and important differences in the way we’re structured and the ways in which we put our members and our community first.
- We’re owned by our members and governed by an all-volunteer, member-elected Board of Directors.
- Because we’re not beholden to Wall Street or investors, we reinvest our profits and pass them along to members in the form of dividends, lower fees, better rates, better loan terms and enhanced services & technology.
- We’re part of your community and have been serving Morris County for more than 80 years, so we understand this community’s values, needs, challenges and opportunities.
- We get to know our members; and we understand that each of them has their own, uniquely personal and financial situation.
- We personalize the customer experience because we believe it is essential that you feel valued, cared for and secure as a member of PFCU.
Picatinny Relationship Rewards is our way of thanking our members for supporting our diverse and growing community.
As a member, you are automatically enrolled in the Relationship Rewards Program. There are no enrollment forms to fill out or annual fees. Members’ reward levels are based on combined savings and loan balances. Start using Picatinny for all your financial needs and you will automatically earn free services and discounts.
Switching to Picatinny
It’s Easier Than You Think!
We know that switching your savings and checking accounts from one institution to another may seem a little daunting.
We’ve broken the process down into four simple steps and developed the PFCU Switch Kit to make it as easy and seamless as possible:
- Stop using your old accounts, but don’t close them completely just yet. Leave enough time for outstanding checks or withdrawals to clear the old account. This can take up to 10 to 12 business days.
- Open your new account at PFCU. Stop by any branch location for personalized assistance to become a new member, or apply online.
- Switch your Direct Deposit from your previous financial institution to Picatinny.
- Switch any automatic payments you have set up and notify the companies that are currently deducting payments from your previous account.
To get started, you can download the switch kit documents here. Or if you prefer, you can visit any branch location and speak to a Member Experience Professional (MEP), who will take you through the steps and assist you with filling out the forms. We will even make any necessary phone calls with you.
