The current Calhoun branch of Family Savings CU will be moving to this new modern facility in March 2017. Members will notice many changes with the new branch, like a large three-lane drive-thru, a drive-up ATM, a spacious lobby with Quick Service Remote Tellers, and many more upgraded services.

Chip-Enabled Cards are Coming Soon!

Family Savings will begin replacing our ATM/Debit Cards with chip cards in the spring. 

Enhanced Security and Fraud Protection. Each time you use your card at a chip-enabled terminal, a one-time code is created to validate the transaction. It's nearly impossible to duplicate.

Widely Accepted Around the World! Your card will be more secure and easier to use when you travel out of country.

If you encounter a non-Chip-Enabled terminal, no worries! You will still be able to swipe the magnetic strip the same as you do today.
