Contact your Congressional Representative TODAY to Protect your Credit Union Debit Card Service

Currently there is important legislation pending in Congress that may adversely affect your credit union debit card and we need your help to stop it.

What's at issue: Retailers are currently asking Congress to shift their cost of doing business to you by reducing their fair share of the card payment system. If the retailers are successful and this legislation passes, you could soon be paying a surcharge for using your debit card to make purchases.

Please take action TODAY to protect your credit union debit card by contacting your state representatives and urging them to oppose inclusion of the Senate-passed Interchange Amendment in the Financial Regulatory Reform Bill.

A prewritten letter is available for your use at the Credit Union Grassroots Action Center where you can personalize and send an email or print and fax a letter to your legislators based on the ZIP code that you enter. Or you can call 1-877-223-5275 and input your ZIP code to be directed to your Congressional Representative.

Thank you for your continued support of Team One Credit Union and for taking action to protect your credit union services.
