Your Association has led the fight against ATM surcharges as a consumer rights issue. To help credit union members avoid ATM surcharges, more than 400 credit unions in ten states have joined together to form the ATM Surcharge-Free Alliance.
This alliance, known as CU$®, allows members from participating credit unions to access their credit union accounts at ATMs owned by credit unions in the alliance without incurring a surcharge.
The network was established through a joint effort of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association and Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union (PSECU).
While the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association believes that ATM surcharges are penalties on consumers, we’ve been unable to have legislation passed to have surcharges either regulated or eliminated. Working with PSECU, we have formed a “surcharge-free” ATM alliance for members of participating credit unions.
The CU$® alliance offers members surcharge-free ATM transactions at over 1227 ATMs. Members should look for the CU$® logo on any credit union ATM.
