Additional SLFCU Services
LEARN MORE ABOUT ATM TRANSACTIONS
Your SLFCU Debit Card has no monthly fee, is accepted anywhere you see the Mastercard® logo and at nearly 30,000 CO-OP ATMs.
- Get Cash and Avoid ATM Surcharges
An SLFCU Debit Card provides easy access to cash at ATMs worldwide. Bank-owned ATMs typically impose a surcharge of $1.50 and up per transaction. To avoid those charges, always try to use a CU Anytime or CO-OP ATM.
- Here's a Money-Saving Tip.
Your SLFCU Debit Card is honored for cash back at many retail stores that accept Mastercard Credit Cards, all over the world, with no surcharge.
- How Many Transactions with No Service Charge?
When your card is attached to an SLFCU Quick Cash Checking Account, you get 20 free cash withdrawals per month. Thereafter, 50 cents per transaction at CU Anytime and 75 cents per transaction at other ATMs. When your card is attached to an SLFCU interest-earning Money Manager checking account you get 10 withdrawals with no service charge each month. Thereafter, 50 cents per transaction at CU Anytime, 75 cents per transaction at other ATMs.
- Making Deposits
Many CU Anytime ATMs are equipped to accept deposits. Deposits made at a CU Anytime ATM before 1 pm Monday through Friday will post to your account later on that same business day. Deposits made after 1 pm Monday through Friday will post on the following business day. Friday deposits made after 1 pm will post on the following Monday, except federal holidays.
CASHIER'S CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS
Cashier's checks and money orders are available for a nominal charge and can be used when you don't want to write a personal check. Cashier's checks may be obtained in branches, by sending a secure message within online banking, or by calling SLFCU at 505.293.0500 or 800.947.5328. Money orders are available in branches only.
Coin machines are available at all SLFCU branches. There is no charge for members to convert coin to cash or deposit it into your SLFCU account. Some coin machines are not available for self-service; check with a representative if you don’t see a coin machine in the lobby of your branch.
Please note: the coin machine at our Cottonwood branch is currently out of order. We are working to repair it as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Use our locator to find shared branching locations.
Members can enter any shared service center and conduct a range of transaction services, such as:
- Cash checks
- Make deposits and withdrawals
