Debit Cards

Before August 19, you will receive a new Nusenda Visa debit card. If you do not receive a new card by August 19, please contact us at 505-889-7755, option 8. You will receive your PIN in a separate mailer. Upon receipt, please activate your card immediately; however, please note that your new card will not be usable until your account is converted to our system on August 19. After conversion, remember to update any automatic payments or preauthorized payments associated with your old card’s expiration dates and security codes with your new card’s information.

Checklist Item

When you receive your debit card, activate your card immediately. For automatic and recurring payments, update your information with your new card's details on or after August 19.


ATM Cash and Check Deposit

With your new Nusenda debit card, you can make a cash or check deposit at select CU Anytime or CO-OP Network machines*. Use the ATM locator to find the location closest to you.

*Please note that not all CU Anytime or CO-OP Network machines accept deposits. The ATM locator can help you find machines that accept deposits.


Checks

Business and personal checks branded with the Western Heritage logo can continue to be used after the account conversion. For instructions on how to order checks view our FAQs.

Overdraft Protection/ Courtesy Pay

If you already have Overdraft Protection established, it will be converted with your account. If you don’t, you can apply for a personal line of credit, or opt to use your savings account to cover a checking account overdraft. Qualified members can also use Courtesy Pay, which allows Nusenda to cover insufficient fund items on debit card purchases, point-of-sale transactions (POS) transactions, ATM withdrawals, and check and ACH transactions up to $500.

Checklist Item

Review the Overdraft Protection options above and determine which services you would like to use for your account(s).

Business Money Market Accounts

Although your account number(s) will remain the same, Western Heritage Freedom Money Market and Platinum Money Market will be replaced by Nusenda Money Market. Click here for more account details.


Share Certificates and IRA Accounts

Credit unions are required to refer to Certificates of Deposit (CDs) as Share Certificates and IRA Share Certificates. The maturity dates, rates, and early withdrawal penalties will stay the same as disclosed at the time of opening. Dividends are posted quarterly on the last day of the month until maturity when they will roll over to a comparable Nusenda Share Certificate with dividends posting monthly. For variable rate certificates or IRAs, these certificates will renew into a fixed rate certificate at the time of maturity as the variable rate option is no longer offered.


Loan Payments

How to make a payment

You can make an online payment with Nusenda Mobile and Internet Banking, or pay at a branch. If you prefer to send your loan payment by mail, please mail it to our post office box.

Consumer Loans

Loan payment amounts, due dates, and terms of mortgage loans and most other consumer loans (auto loans, personal loans, etc.) will remain the same after account conversion.

Business Loans

Loan payment amounts, due dates, and terms of most business loans will remain the same after account conversion. We are also pleased to share that there are no pre-payment penalties on business loans!

Wire Instructions

You can view our FAQs for instructions on sending wire transfers to and from Nusenda Credit Union. You'll be able to use your existing Western Heritage account number.
