Add UW Credit Union Mobile to your iPhone Home Screen

Thousands of members are already using our mobile site and mobile Web Branch available at m.uwcu.org. Many of those members are using iPhones and iPod Touches.

There's an easy way to access your favorite Web sites on those devices. Just go to the Web page and tap the + key at the bottom of the Safari browser. Then choose "Add to Home Screen" from the menu that appears.

Now any time you need to access that page, it is available with the tap of your finger from your home screen.

If you haven't seen our mobile site, you can try our interactive demo.

External Transfer Limits Increased

We've increased the transaction and monthly limits for External Transfers. The increase is not available to all members right away. You first need to qualify for the higher amount by completing a transfer of at least $500 and having 60 days pass following the successful completion of that transfer. Many members have already qualified as they have previously completed the qualification process.

You'll know if you've qualified by looking at the limits on the transfer page (see screenshot). Once you've qualified, you'll be able to do transfers up to $10,000.

The increase is to Standard transfers only--Express transfer limits have not been increased.

Web Branch Design Refresh Preview

We're hard at work doing a design refresh for Web Branch. The new design brings Web Branch in line with our redesigned Web site that launched in April. Rest assured, we aren't changing any functionality or where you find things--the changes are purely cosmetic. However, we continue to optimize our use of graphics and layout to make the pages load as fast as possible.

Look for design updates to Web Alert HTML e-mail messages and the mobile site in the future as well.

The new design should go live in the next month or so.
