We recommend doing this by using the transfer features in online banking. However, if you wish to set up a payment to a loan, you will submit the account number as a 14 digit number, in the following format: XYYYZZZZZZZZZZ; where X indicates a loan (in this case “2” for loan); YYY indicates the Loan Suffix; and ZZZZZZZZZZ is your Member Number (prefilled with zero’s to make 10 digits). This will ensure that the payment posts electronically.
You can call our Information Center at 812-253-MYCU (6928) and we will research the payment for you.
The Method column on the Payment History screen shows whether a payment is made by check or electronically. Please note that payees that are not in our database are paid by check the first time a payment is scheduled, even if they can accept electronic payments, but are paid electronically thereafter. In addition, there are some payees who may never be paid electronically, even if the payee accepts electronic payments. Heritage Federal Credit Union and its payment processor reserve the right to determine the most appropriate way to make the payment.

Yes. Joint owners must contact the credit union at (812) 253-MYCU (6928) or (800) 858-1693 US Toll-free to request that additional statements be directed into their E Statement account. For security reasons, validation must occur at the credit union prior to any joint owner being given access to accounts on which they are a joint owner.

Although E Statement users can always increase the size of the document in order to see the statement better online, the new larger font statement will make the statement easier to read when printed for those members requiring larger print.
