Unity One CU informs: New ATM for students at Timber Creek High School

Convenience is the word for the students, faculty and staff at Timber Creek High School as Unity One Credit Union just opened a new ATM on campus after Spring Break.

Unity One has a long history of partnering with the Keller ISD to provide financial education resources and services to students and faculty. After sponsoring a successful student-run branch for over ten years at Fossil Ridge High School, Unity One was invited to open a branch at the new Keller Center for Advanced Learning in the spring of 2017. In the fall of 2017, Unity One received a request to sponsor an ATM at Timber Creek High School.

Unity One is excited to officially open the Timber Creek ATM this week near the cafeteria. The ATM will be open during regular school hours and will dispurse cash in $5 and $20 denominations.

“Unity One is thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Timber Creek High School to provide this ATM for their use. Our goal is to give students a solid foundation of money management skills. Financial literacy is more important than ever, and we want to help students achieve the financially secure future of their dreams,” said Gary Williams, president of Unity One Credit Union.

Unity One Credit Union informs: Be debit card safe!

Debit cards have become major targets for fraudsters and financial thieves. Why? If you notice unauthorized activity on your credit card bill, you can notify the the company, decline the charges and not pay the bill--keeping your money secure. With a debit card, money instantly disappears from your checking account. Be careful where you use your debit card to keep your checking account funds away from predators. Take note:

  • Don't use single-standing terminals in badly lit or deserted areas. They are great targets for skimming activities. Look for areas inside retail outlets or high-trafficked, well-lit places.

  • Look for "beat up" or "askew" terminal components. They may indicate faulty parts or those installed for the purpose of skimming/stealing information.
  • Use debit card alternatives like cash or credit cards.
  • Don't use your debit card online. It's impossible to know who is handling your information. 
  • Keep your debit card within your reach. Out of hand increases your fraud chances.
  • Be careful of using debit cards to order delivery. Cashiers have the tendency to keep the payment information on file, and the business may not be taking necessary measures to protect your information.
  • Keep as little money as possible in your checking account.
  • Consider a credit card for your everyday purchases.
  • When you input your PIN number, use your hand to cover the number pad. That way, no camera can obtain your PIN.

As always, Unity One Credit Union is your partner in making sure that your funds are safe and secure. Please know that our doors are always open for education and discussion. In fact, we have a certified financial advisor on staff that is available to answer any questions and can advise you in all things financial.
