Let’s be honest—when you’re moving, letting your credit union know your new address is probably not your highest priority. We understand. Moving is chaotic and stressful at the best of times, and with the rise of online banking platforms and mobile apps, letting your credit union know your new address can feel somewhat unnecessary.

The truth, however, is that you need to make sure your financial institutions, including First Alliance Credit Union, have your current address. This isn’t just so we know where you live. It also has three important benefits for you.

Why you need to make sure your credit union has your current address

Update your address at First Alliance

You can get Replacement Credit Cards

This is quite possibly the most important reason to make sure a credit union has your current address. If your credit card is ever lost or stolen, your credit union will mail you a new one, and if your address isn’t current it could be some time before you receive your new card.

Keep up to Date With Credit Union Happenings

While you can keep up to date with First Alliance happenings by visiting our website, checking out our social media accounts or getting our emails, you shouldn’t discount the benefit of getting an envelope in your mailbox. You might discover an offer or event that’s only being offered at your local branch, or you might just get a reminder of a special offer that’s only available to First Alliance Credit Union members. You’ll also wan to make sure your address is current if you prefer to receive your monthly statements through the mail.

Save Money by Avoiding Fees

Finally, you’ll want to make sure your address is current because an outdated address can cost you money. Many credit unions and banks charge you a fee for each piece of mail that gets returned. In the case of First Alliance, the fee is $20, so the sooner you update your address, the more money you’ll save by avoiding fees.
