Frequently Asked Questions
Is my money safe?
Absolutely. Your money is safer in a credit union or bank than under your mattress. HAPO accounts are federally insured up to $250,000 or more making them much safer than cash.
How do I protect my money?
Everyone is being bombarded with news and updates through all channels and media outlets. Whenever there is fear or uncertainty fraudsters are hard at work to prey on that fear. Always remember:
- Only use reputable sources for information regarding COVID 19.
- Be cautions when receiving emails or phone calls. HAPO will never ask for your password or PIN.
- Never click on unknown attachments or links.
- If you receive a call and aren’t sure if it’s legitimate, tell them you’ll call them back.
Do I need to get cash out?
No. With your HAPO debit or HAPO Visa card you can make all your necessary purchases. It’s as good as cash…only safer. Plus, cash has exchanged hands several times and becomes unsanitary very quickly. Keeping our hands clean is something we can all appreciate in the current climate.
Do I need to come into a branch to do my banking?
Not at all. You can do all your banking from the safety of your own home. You have complete access to your money via online banking, our mobile app, and the use of your debit card. You can also pay bills using our online bill pay or even deposit a check using our remote deposit capture feature within our mobile app.
