Set up Phone Banking by calling 800.331.4811.
Checking & Debit Cards
Yes, you will be issued a new debit card that will arrive in the mail by the end of October. If you don't have your new card by October 29, please call the credit union at 800.443.5698.
Your card will arrive in the mail by October 29. You will need to activate this card and can begin using it on November 1. Your First Choice Community Credit Union card will be deactivated on November 2 at 4AM.
You will need to update that information with the merchant as your other card will be deactivated.

Not at this time.
Online Banking and Bill Pay
Yes, on November 1, you can click here or select Online Banking in upper left corner and drop down to “Sign Up”. You will then need your Member Number, Social Security Number and Date of Birth. From there you will set up a username and password. Your member number will now have "800" as beginning numbers of your FCCCU member number.
Once you have enrolled in Online Banking and created a username and password, you can visit the app store and search "Credit Union of Ohio Mobile" and download.
Yes, unfortunately your history will not carry over to your new bill pay option inside of Online Banking. You may want to download your history through bill pay prior to October 31 to make the process easier when setting it up.
The last day to pay bills through your current bill pay system will be on October 29. It's important to look at what bills you have setup for payment and update accordingly prior to October 29.
Your current loans will not change with rate or term. Everything will remain the same.
You can continue to use the same coupon book for loan payments.
You can visit your local branch, current coupon book, enroll in automatic payments through Online Banking, making a transfer through the Mobile App or Online Banking or by mailing a payment to PO Box 5005, Hilliard, OH 43026.
