Money Orders

Instant Issue Visa Gift Cards

Gift certificate and a debit card in one! Simply visit either office and purchase a prepaid Visa Gift Card, loaded with the dollar amount of your choice (from $10 to $1000).

Safer than cash - more versatile than a gift certificate - use wherever Visa Debit Cards are accepted (CANNOT be used for Gas-pay at the pump, Hotels, or Auto Rental. See disclosure for details). There is a fee of $3.50 for each card purchased.

ATM

Beaver Valley FCU provides ATM service at our Beaver Falls and Bridgewater offices. Our ATM is designed exclusively for anyone carrying a Visa Credit Card or Visa Check Card. It provides cash dispenser service only... you cannot make a deposit or loan payment at these machines.

No fees or surcharges will be imposed when you use your Beaver Valley Federal Credit Union VISA Card at our ATMs.

Night Depository

A night depository is available for your convenience at our Beaver Falls and Bridgewater offices. It's a perfect solution when you work late or are in a hurry during regular office hours.

The depository will be emptied ONLY ONCE each morning. Your deposit will be verified by two tellers and promptly posted to your account. Deposits left before 9:00 a.m. will be processed that day; deposits made after 9:00 a.m. will be processed the next business day.

Drive-up Teller Service

Nothing can match the convenience provided by the drive-up window at Beaver Valley FCU's Bridgewater office. Since it's installation, our drive-up teller serves an average of 90 vehicles per day..... yes, we're very busy!

The following guidelines will help make this service work better for everyone:

  • Have your transaction slip filled out with your name, account number and any necessary information
  • Be sure all checks are endorsed and your account number is noted on the back
  • Present your I.D.

The following services are not available at the drive-up window:

  • New accounts
  • New checking accounts
  • Certificate purchases
  • Money Order purchases
  • Visa Gift Card Purchases
  • Visa cash advances
  • No rolled coin!

The drive-up teller service will accommodate one car at a time, but the traffic pattern will allow for up to seven cars to queue for the window. A pneumatic tube system and video/audio equipment aid in making transactions easily from the comfort of your driver's seat.
