Insurance and Protection

Alliant Credit Union offers the following insurance and protection products to safeguard your financial well being.

Insurance Protection

NCUA Insurance

Your savings federally insured to at least $250,000 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government. Each co-owner's share in all joint accounts are added together and insured up to an additional $250,000. Individual Retirement Accounts are separately insured up to $250,000 by the NCUA. A link to NCUA is available to Internet users. A booklet titled "Your Insured Funds" is available upon request.

Credit Disability & Credit Life

Credit Insurance may make your loan payments when you can’t

There’s no way to predict an injury, illness or other unexpected life event. You can take steps to protect your family if the unforeseen happens. Credit disability and credit life insurance may help reduce or pay off your covered loan, up to the policy maximum, in the event of a covered life event, injury, illness or death.

You decide which payments you want to protect and the monthly premium may be added to your loan. Coverage is designed to fit your lifestyle, it is totally voluntary, it won’t affect your loan approval, and it’s simple to apply. You can sign up at your loan closing, or anytime you’d like.

Your purchase of MEMBER’S CHOICE® Credit Life and Credit Disability Insurance, underwritten by CMFG Life Insurance Company, is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement required to obtain a loan. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. Please contact your loan representative or refer to the Group Policy for a full explanation of the terms. CDCL-1457643.1-0316-0418

Mechanical Repair Coverage

The miles can add up but the repair costs don’t have to.

MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage can help deflect some risk of costly repairs keeping your vehicle running extra miles and extra years. With different coverage levels and deductibles to choose, there’s a plan to fit your family’s budget.

Whether you depend on your vehicle for work or getting your family to school and activities, you need transportation that’s safe and reliable. The older your vehicle, the more it takes to keep it in good working order. Not making small repairs can lead to even more expensive repairs and ignoring other repairs can be dangerous.

What can Alliant Credit Union save you in 2017?

A Credit Report Check-Up & Review from Alliant Credit Union is a great way to make sure all your finances are in tip-top shape.  When completing a Check-Up, you’ll meet with an Alliant Credit Union team member to examine your personal credit report.  No worries…it’s painless and totally free!  We’ll complete an entire financial review of your account account to see if there are any money-saving opportunities and also make sure there is no fraud occurring on your account.

Here are just a few true results:

  • One member saved over $4,500 on interest when he brought his auto loan to Alliant Credit Union.  He not only reduced his interest rate, but he reduced the term of the vehicle as well.
  • One member saved over $2,000 on just the GAP and Mechanical Repair Coverage offered at Alliant Credit Union.  This doesn’t account for how much he saved on interest after he brought his loan to Alliant Credit Union!
  • Another member saved over $10,000 when she refinanced just one consumer loan from a title/payday lender and brought it over to Alliant Credit Union.

Did you know, reducing an auto loan by just 1.00%APR could save you a couple hundred dollars and could shorten the term at the same time.

Do you have multiple credit cards that you’re paying interest on?  Consider lowering your rate and consolidating them into one payment with an Alliant Credit Union credit card.

Reach out to us today and discover what Alliant Credit Union can do for you in 2017. Members can also monitor their account by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com.

Frequently Asked Questions»

How does my ATIRAreload card work?

Your ATIRAreload card is a Visa prepaid card. Money available for spending is determined by the amount of money you load on the card. The ATIRAreload card carries the Visa logo, so you can use it almost anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted – in stores, online or over the phone. Each time you use your card, the purchase amount is automatically deducted from your card balance. When your balance gets low, you can add more money onto the card.

How can I find out what my remaining balance is?

You can obtain your account balance anytime by logging on to www.atirareload.com or by calling customer service at 866.466.0058 (954.377.4496 outside the U.S.). Some ATMs may offer the capability of providing your account balance as well. Please refer to the ATIRAreload Fee Schedule at www.atirareload.com for possible fees.

How do I add money to my ATIRAreload card?

You can add money to your card online at www.atirareload.com, at Alliant Credit Union or through the direct deposit of your wages.

Where can I use my ATIRAreload card?

  • at almost any merchant that accepts Visa debit cards
  • online for purchases and bill payments
  • at financial institutions that accept Visa debit cards to make cash withdrawals
  • at any ATM that accepts Visa debit cards

Are there any special types of transactions I should know about before I shop with my ATIRAreload card?

There are special types of transactions that you should know about.
Gas Stations - Paying at the pump may cause a minimum hold until the transaction clears; consider paying inside with the attendant for the exact amount and signing the receipt instead.
Restaurants - Restaurants may authorize your card for the amount of the dining bill to verify you have enough money in your account. Make sure you have enough funds on the card to cover any additional tips or gratuities.
Hotels - Hotels may put a hold on the amount of your estimated bill, making that amount unavailable for other purchases. When you check out, that hold may take a few days to be removed.
Auto Rentals - You may use your card for final payment for a rental car bill, however, a credit card may be necessary to reserve a rental car.
Returning Purchases - Store return policies may vary. You may receive a credit to your card, a cash refund or even a store credit, depending on the particular store. A credit to your account may take up to one week to process before it is available for use.

What is the difference between ATIRAreload and a debit card, a credit card or a gift card?

An ATIRAreload card is different from a debit card because your ATIRAreload card is not directly linked to your checking account at Alliant Credit Union. It is different from a credit card because the money that is on your ATIRAreload card is funded by you. Your ATIRAreload is different from an ATIRAgift card because the gift card is a onetime use card (it cannot be reloaded).

How do I find out what the PIN number is for my ATIRAreload card?

By calling 866-466-0058 (954-377-4496 outside the U.S.), you will be provided the assigned PIN and then prompted to select a new PIN, if desired. Please refer to the ATIRAreload Fee Schedule at www.atirareload.com/fees for possible fees.

What do I do if my ATIRAreload card is lost or stolen?

If your card is lost or stolen, please call our customer service line immediately at 866-466-0058 (954-377-4496 outside the U.S.) to report the incident.

How can I request additional ATIRAreload cards?

The additional card can be requested by calling 866-466-0058 (954-377-4496 outside the U.S.) or visiting www.atirareload.com. Please refer to the ATIRAreload Fee Schedule at www.atirareload.com/fees for possible fees.

Why do I need to activate my ATIRAreload card?

Activation is a security measure to prevent your card from being stolen out of the mail. Activation will require you to validate information to ensure that you have received your ATIRAreload card. The card must be activated before you are able to use it. Your ATIRAreload card can be activated by calling 866-466-0058 (954-377-4496 outside the U.S.) or visiting www.atirareload.com.

How do I allow another person to use my card?

You can order a secondary card by visiting www.atirareload.com or contact Alliant Credit Union. Simply complete the online registration form about the additional person. They will receive their own card number to the address you provided. The secondary cardholder will need to activate their card upon receipt.

What are the minimum and maximum load amounts for my ATIRAreload card?

The minimum load amount for the ATIRAreload card is $25.00. The maximum one time load for the ATIRAreload card is $5,000. The maximum value that can be on the ATIRAreload card at one time is $20,000.00.

Does the primary account holder need to have a social security number?

A Social Security Number or TIN is required for the primary cardholder.

Can I send another card to someone outside the U.S.?

Yes, but a U.S. address of the primary cardholder will need to be entered into the appropriate fields. The secondary card will be sent to the primary cardholder’s address. The primary cardholder can then ship the card to wherever it is needed.

How do I set up direct deposit with my ATIRAreload card?

Complete a direct deposit form at your employer directing all or a portion of your wages to your ATIRAreload account number. You can also set up direct deposit from your checking or savings account to your ATIRAreload card by visiting www.atirareload.com. Please refer to the ATIRAreload Fee Schedule at www.atirareload.com/fees for possible fees.

How can I access cash?

Use your PIN number to withdraw funds from any ATM where Visa debit cards are accepted. To withdraw funds from a financial institution, present the card to the teller and ask for a cash advance or withdrawal. In some instances, retailers will allow you to obtain cash back after making a purchase when you enter your PIN and select "debit" on the point of sale terminal. Please refer to the ATIRAreload card Fee Schedule at www.atirareload.com/fees for possible fees. To locate an ATM near you, visit www.atirareload.com/atm.

What does the term “for electronic use only” on my card mean?

This means that your card can only be used at merchant locations that use electronic terminals to process your transaction. Your card cannot be used with retailers that need to make an impression of your card.

Does the balance on my ATIRAreload card earn interest?

No, interest will not be applied to your ATIRAreload card balance.

Can I use my ATIRAreload card as a signature card?

Yes, the ATIRAreload card can be used to make purchases at almost all merchants that accept Visa debit cards. You can simply select "credit" and provide the merchant with your signature on the receipt at the point of sale terminal. Or, you can pay for purchases by selecting "debit" on the point of sale terminal and entering your PIN number.

Is there a limit to the number of ATIRAreload accounts I can have?

Each person is only allowed to have one card in their name but the primary cardholder can order up to six additional cards that will be attached to the same account.

What should I do when I've spent the original amount I put on the ATIRAreload card?

In most cases, you can simply add more money to your ATIRAreload card. You can reload by contact Alliant Credit Union, through direct deposit of your wages or on the web at www.atirareload.com. You will want to keep your card—even after the balance is depleted and you decide not to add additional money to it —in case you need to return any purchased items. You might be asked to present the card when returning items purchased with the card.

What if I want to purchase an item that costs more than the balance on my ATIRAreload card?

To make a purchase greater than the balance on your card, you will need to use a second payment method—cash, check, or credit card—to cover the difference. When making your purchase, you must tell the cashier in advance how much to deduct from your card and how much you will pay with the second payment method. However, not all merchants can handle these “split tender” transactions; and, if you try to purchase an item of greater value than your card balance, your card will be declined.

What should I do if my ATIRAreload card is declined?

If a transaction is declined, the merchant will let you know. To help prevent this, keep track of your balance by visiting www.atirareload.com or call 866-466-0058 (954-377-4496 outside the U.S.).

What if I change my mind and want to cancel a purchase?

If the merchant cancels a transaction at your request, it may take three to seven business days for the authorization hold to be removed from your card.

What if I need to return an item that I purchased with my ATIRAreload card?

Present your ATIRAreload card at the time of a merchandise return. If the merchant’s return policy allows it, the merchant will credit the amount of the purchase back onto your card. Remember to save your purchase receipts and your card even after the funds have been depleted, in case you have merchandise returns. When returning an item purchased online, have your card number available in order to process the return. The merchandise value will be credited back to your card within three to seven business days.

How long can I use my ATIRAreload card?

You can make purchases using your ATIRAreload card until the expiration date shown on the card, or until the value of the card has been depleted. Once the balance on your card has been depleted, you can add more money to your card at the financial institution where you purchased the card, through the direct deposit of your wages or on the web at www.atirareload.com.

What are the fees associated with my ATIRAreload card?

Is there a daily limit on how much cash I can withdraw from an ATM?

ATIRAreload cardholders are limited to a $500 per day withdrawal of funds from an ATM (some ATMs may have a lower daily limit).

When I make a withdrawal at an ATM, the screen prompts me for account (e.g., Savings, Checking, Money Market, etc.). Which do I choose?

Always select CHECKING when making an ATM withdrawal.

Can I request balance inquires from an ATM?
