Do You Know How to Stop Fraud Once It Occurs?
Detect fraud faster after security breaches by using Money Manager
Merchant-origin data security breaches can create headaches for some and serious financial consequences for others. Technology security experts agree that individual vigilance is the best means to reduce the long-term effects of such data security breaches.

Money Manager from Pen Air FCU offers tools to help you to track your transactions to discover whether any of your accounts have been exposed. Aggregating your account information, even from financial institutions other than Pen Air FCU makes Money Manager the best way to monitor for potential problems.

Simple Steps Stop Fraud:

1. On the Dashboard of Money Manager, go to the Search function. Enter a merchant’s name, and check to see if any of your accounts were exposed to a known threat. The Advanced Search allows you to check transactions for the past 90 days.

2. Add any external accounts that you have at other institutions (like credit cards and checking accounts) using the Add button on the dashboard to start monitoring those accounts for issues as well.

Using Money Manager from Pen Air FCU to track potential exposure and fraud allows you to keep command of your financial future.

If you find suspicious account activity or have any questions about using Money Manager, don’t hesitate to call 1-877-4PENAIR and speak with any of our Member Service Representatives. Your financial security is important to us.
Savings You’ll Be Thankful For

For a limited time, move your auto loan to Pen Air FCU and receive up to 2% APR off your current rate and/or $25 off your monthly payment. Now those are savings you can be thankful for. Visit penair.org/AutoLoans to apply today!
Rates, terms and conditions are subject to change and may vary based on creditworthiness, qualifications and collateral conditions. All loans subject to approval.

Legal Expertise at Your Service
Pen Air FCU offers prepaid legal services for Alabama and Florida residents through Staples, Ellis, & Associates, P.A.
While most people know and recognize the need for insurance to cover their homes, cars, and health, some may not realize the benefit of having a legal services plan. Membership in a legal services plan is similar to insurance. While you may never need the services of an attorney as frequently as you would a doctor, the need is no less urgent when issues arise.
Staples, Ellis, & Associates offer peace-of-mind and empowerment to Pen Air FCU members when they need it most by providing service for members seeking assistance with wills and trusts, as well as lawsuits and other litigation.

More information regarding prepaid legal services can be found on our website or by visiting any Pen Air FCU branch location.
Our Community
Toys R' Needed
 There’s still time to help local children this holiday season with Toys for Tots!
Get into the holiday spirit! Pen Air FCU has once again partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps for their annual Toys for Tots drive. All Pen Air FCU branch locations will serve as donation sites for new, unwrapped toys. Donations will be accepted until Thursday, December 4th and will be distributed to children throughout our community before the Christmas holiday. Click here to find your nearest Pen Air FCU branch location.
Wrapping Them in Love

Recent blanket drive will help to keep hundreds of local seniors warm this winter.

Last month, Pen Air FCU employees partnered with Granny Nannies, an organization dedicated to caring for the elderly, and collected new fleece blankets to keep local seniors warm. The original goal to provide at least 50 blankets was met and quickly grew to a total donation of over 300 blankets! To learn more about Granny Nannies, click here.
Communerosity Unparalleled
The results are in!
Drumroll please! With the help and generous donations from both members and employees, Pen Air FCU was able to donate over 600 pounds of non-perishable food items to MANNA Food Pantry and Prodisee Pantry this year! These donations will go to help hundreds of local families to have food on their tables this holiday season. We are proud to live and work in a community where people are so willing to help those in need. Your communerosity is showing!
