As part of their fraud prevention programs, gas merchants may set dollar limits for purchases at customer-activated pumps when payment cards are used. These limits often correspond to fraud protection limits granted by various credit card vendors. In most circumstances, card companies generally protect gas merchants up to a certain amount for pay-at-the-pump transactions. The pay-at-pump limits are imposed by the individual gas merchants themselves, not by the Credit Union, and it is not specific to individual members/customers.

Your checking account has two kinds of balances: an “actual balance” and an “available balance.” Both balances will change with any check, debit card or other transaction as you use your checking account.

What is “actual balance”? Your “actual balance” is the actual amount of money in your account. It may be referred to in your statement as “current balance” or simply “balance.” It reflects items that have been fully processed and posted to your account but not transactions that are still processing or “pending.” Some people say these transactions “have cleared my account.”

What is “available balance”? Your “available balance” is usually a different number than your “actual balance.” Your “available balance” is the portion of your actual balance that is available for immediate withdrawal or to pay other debit items; it takes into account standard funds availability held under our Funds Availability Policy, as well as any pending debits and credits we have received but not yet posted to your account (for example, pre-authorized debit card transactions, pending checks, transfers, withdrawals or other holds on your account). Items still in process or on hold may be referred to as “pending” on your Digital Banking. The available balance changes throughout the day as transactions occur.

For more information please refer to the details in our Courtesy Pay Opt-In/Opt-Out form or call Member Services at 800-268-6928.

Loans

Find savings and loan rates here, and find mortgage rates here.

APR is the Annual Percentage Rate and it is the total cost of credit expressed in a yearly rate including interest and finance charges.

APY is the Annual Percentage Yield reflecting the total amount of dividends paid on a deposit account, based on the dividend rate and the frequency of compounding for a 365-day period.

The lower the APR, the less you may have to pay in interest when you borrow. The higher the APY the more you may earn in interest when you save.

We currently offer a .25% APR discount for payment by payroll deduction or automatic transfer from your CU account. The .25% APR discount is not available for mortgages and credit cards.

When you drive your new or used vehicle off the dealer’s lot it begins to depreciate in value. This could mean that there is a big difference between what you owe on the loan and what your auto insurance will pay in the event of a total loss. In the event of a total loss, GAP insurance helps to pay the difference between the value of your vehicle and what you owe on your loan. It covers up to 130% loan-to-value for a one-time fee of $350. This is available on vehicles, motorcycles, boats, and RVs.

You can add GAP insurance to your Dominion Energy CU car loan at any time; just call us at 800-268-6928.

Call us at 800-268-6928 and we will be happy to walk you through the enrollment process.

  • Registered users: The Digital Banking login is at the top of each Dominion Energy Credit Union page. Simply enter your user ID and password and click "Log In" to continue the process. You can also download our Mobile App from your App store and log in using the App.

Click here for easy “how-to” videos on the various services offered through Digital Banking.

When you sign up for Digital Banking, you will create your own password. Your password must contain alpha, numeric, and special characters. The minimum password length is eight characters.

If you don't know your Digital Banking password, click on the "Forgot Password" link under the log in box. As a security measure, Digital Banking will allow you five invalid password attempts before you will be locked out. After an hour, you will be able to try one more time before having to go through forgotten password support. If you are locked out, click on the “Forgot Password” link on the login page.

To protect you and your account against identity theft, if you enter the wrong login information multiple times your Digital Banking account will be locked. Please wait an hour and try again. If still locked out, please call us at 800-268-6928 to unlock your account. 

You should change your password frequently and any time you believe it has been compromised. Once in Digital Banking, you may change your password as often as you like. To change your password, click on "Preferences" and then "Security." From there you will be able to change your password under the "Password" tab. Passwords are required to be changed annually.

Most of your transactions will post immediately to your account. All check requests will be mailed by the next business day. You may also schedule future-dated transfers.

Yes. If you have requested and been set up for cross-account transfers you will see the accounts listed when you log in to Digital Banking. You can also make one-time or scheduled transfers to another member's account in Digital Banking.

Yes. You will still receive a paper statement through the mail. However, you may find Digital Banking so convenient that you no longer use your paper statement. As a Digital Banking user, you are eligible to sign up to receive eStatements. With eStatements, you can view your statements online anytime by logging in to Digital Banking.

Once you are logged into Digital Banking click "View Your Visa®" on the home page. This will bring up a new window with your credit card account history in it. You may also wish to download our convenient Card Control App for easy on-the-go credit card management. Credit card transactions may take a full business day to appear.

No. Just download the app and use your Digital Banking credentials to log in. You do need to enroll in Mobile Deposit in Digital Banking, however. In Digital Banking, click “Settings,” and then “Mobile Deposit Enrollment” and follow the prompts to enroll. You may need to log out and then back in for the Mobile Deposit option to show up once enrolled.

If set up, other accounts will be visible upon logging into Digital Banking 
Please note, you will need to have cross-account transfer set up to access multiple accounts in Digital Banking. Click here for a cross-account transfer form. 

Securing your identity and account information is a top priority. As an additional precaution, Digital Banking users will automatically be asked to change their password yearly.

To help you easily identify your various accounts, you can add account nicknames, for example “John’s personal checking”. 

This is especially helpful with joint accounts. If you are a joint owner on accounts, the masked account numbers can be confusing to view in the account overview screen. To simplify the viewing of these accounts you can add account nicknames. These nicknames will be viewable between Digital Banking and Mobile Banking.

To setup the nicknames, login to Digital Banking, click on "Account" under Your Preferences in the menu. You can also select the order that the accounts are displayed in the Account Overview. Click here for easy “how-to” videos for Digital Banking topics.

Dominion Energy Credit Union is committed to protecting the confidentiality of your personal information and safeguarding your banking activities when interacting with us digitally. Digital Banking scams such as phishing, pharming and spyware have caused some banking customers to lose confidence in the security of Digital Banking and to go back to more traditional in-person banking methods. Therefore, Dominion Energy Credit Union has taken proactive steps to implement an advanced multi-layered security system. These security enhancements, which follow the most recent FFIEC recommendations, will better protect you against digital theft and fraud, thereby providing you with more peace of mind when banking digitally with Dominion Energy Credit Union.

No. Your digital account information is available only through access methods that have been rigorously tested for their secure access. The information is not public. Only you can access it using your user ID, password, and two factor authentication. Unless you share your password, no one else can access your account information in Digital Banking. For more information, visit our Security section.

Multi-layered security enhancement protects your digital Dominion Energy Credit Union accounts with an even higher level of security. This system enables you to verify that you are accessing our secure website.

When logging in to Digital Banking, the multi-layered security system uses multiple methods (i.e. user ID, password, Secure Access Code) rather than a single layer (i.e. password and user ID) to establish your identity.

A unified experience means the look and feel of Digital and Mobile Banking is consistent on all of your devices. It does not mean that the exact same features and functions are available on every device. It is intended to improve your experience by making navigation simple and familiar regardless of device.

By registering a device, you are telling the security system that this is your own personal device. Registering a device allows you to bypass the Secure Access Code process. The system will go directly to your account overview after entering your user ID and password. For your protection, we do not recommend registering any device that has multiple users or public access.

Please note, if you delete cookies in your internet browser you will need to re-register your device the next time you log into Digital Banking.

No. You may be asked for a secure access code if you automatically or manually delete your browser’s cookies. You may also be prompted to register that computer again when you attempt to log in to Digital Banking after cookies have been deleted.

No, for your convenience the system only requires one enrollment. The person that completes the initial login should share his or her specific information (i.e.: user ID and password) with anyone who is joint on the account. This will enable both users to easily access their account information on future logins.

Yes. Deleting cookies on your browser settings will un-register that specific device.

Please note: A routine maintenance procedure typically involves deleting your cookies. Simply be aware that following any routine computer maintenance, you may be prompted to register that computer again when you attempt to log in to Dominion Energy Credit Union Digital Banking.

Email the Member Services Department at [email protected] or call at 800.268.6928. Remember to not send any personal or account information by email. If you need to email secure information email us with our secure Zixmail email service.

Yes, you can log in with Face ID / Touch ID on iPhones® and iPads® that contain related hardware.  It’s simple to setup – view our “how-to” videos here.

Mobile Banking allows you to securely access your accounts anytime, anywhere from your mobile web browser.

You can view all your Dominion Energy Credit Union accounts once you are logged in to Mobile Banking.

Just visit your app store to download the Dominion Energy Credit Union iPhone® or Android™ app. You will be asked for a secure access code the first time. You may want to register your device, so you won't get asked each time.

Yes. To access your Mobile Banking account, use the same user ID and password that you use to access your Digital Banking account.

It's free to use Mobile Banking. However, mobile and data rates may apply from your wireless provider.

Yes. Our mobile site has many of the same security features as Digital Banking. Just like Digital Banking, Mobile Banking leverages the powerful technology available through a digital certificate from Verisign, Inc., protecting the security of the site with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption. In addition to the encryption technology, we have installed multiple firewalls to protect your accounts from unauthorized access from outside Dominion Energy Credit Union.

Users are required to enter a valid user ID and password to access the secure Mobile Banking. So even if your phone is lost or stolen, your account cannot be accessed without your user ID and password.

In the event your phone is stolen, you should contact your wireless service provider to have your device deactivated. We further recommend that you put a password or other security code on your smartphone.

To protect you and your account against identity theft, your Digital and Mobile Banking account will be locked if you enter the wrong login information multiple times. Please wait an hour and try again. If you are still locked out, please call us at 800.268.6928 to unlock your account.

Yes! Our mobile site has the same security features as Digital Banking. Just like Digital Banking, Mobile Banking and Mobile Deposit take advantage of the powerful technology available through a digital certificate from Verisign, Inc., protecting the security of the site with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption. In addition to the encryption technology, we have installed multiple firewalls to protect your accounts from unauthorized access from outside the Credit Union.

For security purposes and to ensure the funds for large deposits. These are the same holds that we place on deposits in the branch. The first $225 of any mobile deposit will be available the same business day. The rest will be available after a five-business-day hold. Any funds exceeding the $2,500 daily maximum will be available five business days after the deposit.

This is due to a technical limitation in our digital banking system. We apologize for the ambiguity.

Releasing holds is determined on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Credit Union if you would like a hold released.

A mobile wallet is a secure, contactless digital way to store credit, debit, ID, and gift cards so that purchases can be made using a mobile smart device rather than a physical card. 

There are digital wallet options for most Apple and Android devices, and you can also pay digitally with some fitness trackers/watches. Google Wallet's Tap and Pay requires Android Devices running Android 7.0+. For the most up-to-date information, visit google.com/wallet.

Apply Pay works on Apple devices. For the most up-to-date information, visit apple.com/apple-pay.

Android Pay works on all Android smartphones and tablets with Android 7.0+. For the most up-to-date information, visit pay.google.com/about.

Samsung Pay, is now Samsung Wallet. Please go to samsung.com/us/samsung-wallet/ for details and supported devices.

To add your DECU cards to your mobile wallet, you can use our Card Control App and select the card then select "add to wallet". Or go directly to your favorite wallet app.

Look for the Tap and Pay, Apple Pay, or contactless icons when you check out at a store. Then simply open the mobile wallet app on your smartphone/device and hold your device a few inches above the contactless payment reader. When shopping online or in app simply log into your preferred wallet (ie Apple Pay, Google Pay etc).

Yes—more secure than magnetic stripes! It replaces actual data on the physical card (i.e. the credit card number) with “virtual data,” or a secure token from Visa®. Even if hackers steal tokens, they will not be able to obtain other data associated with your card. The information is useless without your device and the device’s secure log-in information (i.e. your phone’s PIN). If a large retailer’s database is hacked, this principle still applies: the token will be useless without the phone and its user. 

You only have to enter your card once when using Mobile Wallets. Aside from that, your card number is not stored anywhere on the phone, but rather replaced by a non-sensitive “token” that is used to transact.

Google Wallet has become exclusive to person-to-person (P2P) payments whereas Android Pay can be used for consumers who wish to make in-store and digital purchases.

Apple Pay:

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad that's compatible with Apple Pay.
  2. Tap on Passbook & Apple Pay.
  3. Tap on Default Card.
  4. Tap on the card you want to use as your default.

Android Pay:

  1. Open the Android Pay app.
  2. If you have multiple Google Accounts in Android Pay: At the top left, touch your name, then choose an account.
  3. Double tap a card, then touch Set as default card.
  4. Or touch and drag a card to the "Default card" spot at the top of the app's Home screen.

Samsung Pay:
The last-used card will always appear. Tap to select a different card.

Every Mobile Wallet secures your card information by encryption or protected code. Mobile Wallets are also protected by phone passcodes, PIN before purchase options, and the ability to disable the app remotely. Set up biometric identification, a PIN, or other authentication method to control access to the app.

If someone stole your phone, that person would need your phone’s password (or biometric identification, PIN, etc.) before s/he could make a payment. Your phone’s password is independent of the Mobile Wallet and in addition to the authentication required for mobile payments.
If your phone is lost or stolen, each mobile payment solution can be shut down remotely.

 After downloading our app and logging in for the first time, be sure to go under "Settings" and enroll in Mobile Deposit. You will then see the option appear in the main menu

Parents may sign for a minor to be a joint owner (parent’s name “signing for” child’s name plus parent’s signature).
