Electronic Funds Transfer

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is an option for making your regular Sunday, Christmas, and Easter Offerings. This option allows St. Joseph's Credit Union to deduct a set weekly amount on Fridays OR a set monthly amount on the 1st or 15th of the month from your checking or savings account. To set up EFT, simply fill out, sign, and turn in an Authorization Form to the parish office. To make any changes to your deductions, simply fill out and sign another Authorization Form and submit it to the parish office. Three business days are needed for it to be processed. Authorization Forms are also available on the wood table by the main door and at our parish office.

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER PROGRAM?
It is a direct payment program whereby your contribution is debited automatically from your checking or savings account. You will continue to receive your envelopes in the mail so that you can make contributions for Holy Days and special collections.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER?
The Electronic Funds Transfer program will help you in several ways:

  1. It saves time and cost - fewer checks to write.
  2. Helps meet your commitment to support the mission of the parish - even if you're on vacation or out of town.
  3. Your contribution is always made on the day or date you specify.
  4. You won't have to remember to prepare your envelope or check before heading out the door to Mass.
  5. It's easy to sign up for, as well as easy to cancel or change, should you so desire.

WILL IT COST ME ANYTHING?
There is no charge for this service.

HOW OFTEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GIVE ELECTRONICALLY?
Accounts can be debited weekly or monthly, as well as for Christmas and Easter. The monthly dates are the 1st or the 15th; if these dates fall on a weekend or holiday, the debit will occur on the next business day. You may also designate your contributions for Christmas and Easter. These will be debited on December 15th and April 1st respectively.

HOW ARE MY CONTRIBUTIONS AUTOMATICALLY DEDUCTED?
The amount you specify will automatically be deducted based upon the option you choose.

CAN I CHANGE THE AMOUNT OF MY OFFERING TRANSFER?
Yes, you can change or cancel at any time by contacting the parish office.

WHAT IF I CHANGE BANK ACCOUNTS?
Notify the office and we will give you a new authorization form to complete.
