COVID-19 (coronavirus) Update as of March 27, 2020

Our 1725 I Street NW location remains open to assist members with lending needs and pressing account transactions from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (appointments are highly recommended). Due to limited access at sponsor group facilities and to protect our members and staff, the Credit Union branches at MC, IMF, and IFC are temporarily closed.

We encourage the use of Digital Banking, Telephone Banking, and the Call Center which have full access and functionality to support members.

Checking

Choose the Checking Account that is right for you. 

The Membership Checking Account is truly free; there are no minimum balance requirements and no monthly fees. Get the flexibility you need without the expensive frills.

The Money Management Checking Account (MMCA) was designed for those members looking for the convenience of a checking account combined with the benefits of a higher yield. With the MMCA, your checking funds work harder for you all year long. If you typically maintain a minimum balance of $2,500 or more in your checking account*, switching to our MMCA is a smart move.

ATM Surcharge Rebate Program

When you enroll in eStatements and use your BFSFCU Visa Debit Card at any non-BFSFCU ATM, the first six surcharges (ATM usage fees) applied to your checking account each month will be rebated to you.2 After the initial six cash withdrawals, members will be responsible for the surcharges associated with non-BFSFCU ATM transactions. To activate e-Statements or e-Alerts, login to Digital Banking, access the Self Service menu, and click on the e-Statement Enrollment link. Please note that failure to maintain a valid email address with the Credit Union will result in the cancellation of eStatements and removal from the ATM Surcharge Rebate Program.

ATM Locations

BFSFCU maintains several full-service ATMs for your convenience. Please note that if our machines are unavailable due to scheduled maintenance, you may use the ATM locator to find the nearest surcharge-free ATM

BFSFCU Mobile Deposit

Deposit a check with BFSFCU’s Digital Banking App. Remember to endorse the back of the check and write “For BFSFCU Mobile Deposit only”. Follow the instructions in our Digital Banking app to proceed with the deposit.
