Fraud Notice

Due to high levels of fraud, you may be required to use your PIN number with Debit Card transactions.

SOCU suggests to always use your debit card as credit and sign for your transaction, if you are unsure how to do this, please ask the cashier at the store. If your card is declined, rerun the transaction on your card. This time you will process the transaction as debit and enter your PIN number for extra security. It is not recommended to use your PIN number for every transaction.

If you are unsure of your PIN number, please contact the SOCU at 815-673-5577. It is always a good idea to have alternative forms of payment available, Enroll your Debit card for Mobile Pay, apply for an SOCU Visa Credit Card or order a box of checks to avoid/limit disruptions with your purchases.

If you have any questions please contact SOCU at 815-673-5577.
