    I forgot my username. How can I reset it?
    You must contact the Credit Union to reset your username.

    Will each username need to have a unique password?
    It is not a requirement. However, we encourage you to change your password to be different from any joint member's password. By having unique passwords, each individual's sign in will be more secure. If there are multiple people on the account, all parties will be prompted to reset their password.

    When you purchase an item with your Visa Debit Card, transactions may take a few days to clear your account.

    Available balance of $300.00. This is how much money that you can spend (not including any checks that have not yet cleared). Notice that when using the Visa Debit Card your available balance is changed immediately and the funds are placed on "hold." Balance of $400.00.

    This is the amount that is technically still in your account, because the Visa Debit Card transaction that you just made has not cleared your account.

This is already installed on most computers, and allows you to scan your checks in using eDeposit's built-in scanning wizard. If you're using any other system, you may use your own scanner software to import the images of your check. Keep in mind that you will need to scan in the front and back of your check.

    When using eDeposit, why doesn't my scanner appear in the dropdown menu?
    In order for a scanner to be displayed in the dropdown menu, you will have to install the Java plug-in. Please note that only Internet Explorer version 8 or later uses Java; therefore, you will need to choose the “Use Your Own Software” option for other web browsers.

You will have to repeat this step for the back image of the check.

    I've selected the Use Your Own Scanner Software option in eDeposit, but I can't get my check image to load correctly. What should I do?

If you have made these changes, and your check image still will not load correctly, please contact us online or by calling 517-333-2424 or 800-678-4968.

    I'm using eDeposit and am receiving an error message that my check is too narrow or short.
    The check image size needs to be the same for both the front and the back of the check. Be sure to crop both the front and back images of your check so they're the same size, and try the process again. If you continue to receive an error message, contact us online or by calling 517-333-2424 or 800-678-4968.

    I scanned my check to eDeposit, but I received an error message that my account number cannot be found.

Please note that you may need to click “Undo” several times to return the image to its original state. You might also try adding a black dot to each of the four corners of your check. This can help the system to recognize the actual edges of your check when cropping.

    How do I crop my check image using eDeposit?
    1. Click on the "Crop" button.
    2. Click on the upper left hand corner of your check image.

    FICO® Scores
    What is a FICO® Score?
    A FICO® Score is a three-digit number calculated from the information on your credit report. Lenders typically use your credit score to determine the likelihood you'll be able to pay them back.

    What makes up a FICO® Score?
    FICO® Scores are calculated using information in five categories from your credit report. The categories and their corresponding percentages make up your FICO® Score: 35% - Past History
    30% - Amount Owed
    15% - Length of Credit History
    10% - Types of Credit in Use
    10% - New Credit

    Why is MSUFCU providing FICO® Scores?
    MSUFCU offers members with an active lending relationship or checking account the ability to view their FICO® Score, updated quarterly, as a way to better understand their financial health.

    Will receiving my FICO® Score from the Credit Union affect my score?
    No. Your FICO® Score will not be affected.

    How do I opt out of having my FICO® Score displayed?
    You may opt-out of the ability to view your FICO® Score within the FICO® Score screen.

    Why don't I have a FICO® Score?
    You may not have a FICO® Score if you do not have any credit history, or if you do not have a lending relationship with MSUFCU.

    How long will negative information remain on my credit files?
    It depends on the type of negative information. Here’s the basic breakdown of how long different types of negative information will remain on your credit files:
    • Late payments: 7 years
    • Bankruptcies: 7 years for a completed Chapter 13, and 10 years for Chapters 7 and 11
    • Foreclosures: 7 years
    • Collections: Generally, about 7 years, depending on the age of the debt being collected
    • Public Record: Generally 7 years, although unpaid tax liens can remain indefinitely
    Keep in Mind: For all of these negative items, the older they are the less impact they will have on your FICO® Scores. For example, a collection that is 5 years old will hurt much less than a collection that is 5 months old.

    What actions can help my score?
    Generally, lenders see less risky borrowers as those who have:
    • Timely bill payments
    • Low balances
    • Open relatively few new credit accounts
    • Rate shop within a short period of time

    Where can I go to find out more about FICO® Scores?
    To find out more about FICO® Scores, visit or check out the FAQs about FICO® Scores and Understanding FICO® Scores educational information posted on our website.

    What are your current Mortgage Rates?
    We have a rate hotline that is updated as rates change. To listen to our current rates, please call 800-678-4968 ext. 2240. You may also click here to check our current mortgage rates.

    What are points?
    Points are the option to reduce your interest rate for your loan by paying a fee. This pre-pays part of your interest, so that interest payments are reduced over the term of the loan. Each point is equal to 1.0% of the loan balance. For example, if you pay 1 point on a $100,000 loan, the cost of the point is $1,000, 2 points cost $2,000, and so on. Each point you pay will lower your interest rate by approximately 0.25%. On a $100,000 loan, each point will lower your payment about $17 a month.

    Why do I need PMI (private mortgage insurance)?
    PMI is required by those members whose down payment is less than 20% of the loan. Mortgage insurance was created to allow consumers to purchase a home without a large down payment. Many home buyers do not have savings that are equal to 20% of the value of the home they wish to purchase. Lenders typically do not lend money at low interest rates for more than 80% of the home value. This is because lenders need to be protected in the event of default or foreclosure. Borrowers who have at least 20% equity in their homes tend to default less often. Mortgage insurance assumes the risk on the loan amount above 80% of the home value. The insurance cost is included in your monthly mortgage payment if you need PMI.

    How do I remove PMI (private mortgage insurance) from my mortgage loan?
    You can remove/cancel PMI (private mortgage insurance) from your monthly payment without refinancing. Once you have paid down your mortgage or your property has appreciated to the point that you have 20% equity in your home and you haven't missed a mortgage payment in the past twelve months, you can send a formal request to the MSUFCU mortgage department. Your request will be reviewed and if you qualify, the PMI will be removed from your loan.

    What is the difference between fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgages?
    A fixed-rate mortgage is a loan that the principal and interest payment never change during the life of the loan. An adjustable-rate mortgage is a loan that the interest rate can change periodically based on the market rates that exist at the time the rate is subject to change. Initially, adjustable rates are generally lower than fixed rates, but can adjust upward if interest rates rise. There is a predefined cap which limits how high the interest rate can adjust.

    How do adjustable-rate mortgages work?
    There are many types of adjustable-rate mortgages, but there are common features among them. One common feature of adjustable-rate mortgages is an interest rate change that occurs after a stipulated number of payments have been made. The interest rate can increase or decrease depending on how the new interest rate is calculated. Typically, the interest rate change is based on a predetermined index value such as the treasury bill rate, prime, the cost of funds from the Federal Home Loan Bank or the lender's internal cost of funds plus a margin. If a mortgagor currently has an interest rate that is pending adjustment, the new rate would be calculated by adding the current index rate and a margin. For example, if the mortgagor's current rate is 6.00% plus a 2.00% margin, the new rate would be 8.00%. The maximum amount the interest rate can change during any adjustment period is usually fixed. This maximum adjustment is called the cap. Adjustable rate mortgages also have a lifetime cap, preventing the interest rate from exceeding a predetermined rate.

    What are escrow accounts and how much do I need in my escrow account?
    Escrow are payments made by a mortgager to a mortgagee (MSUFCU) for the purpose of paying your taxes, insurance and other payments associated with home ownership. The mortgagee (MSUFCU) is responsible for the timely disbursement of escrow funds to pay your bills as they come due. Usually, MSUFCU will collect the funds for placement into your escrow account with your periodic payment for your mortgage's principal and interest. This ensures that the escrow account has sufficient funds in the account to pay your bills when they come due. It is common practice for mortgage companies to hold an escrow cushion for a mortgagor. The cushion is kept by the mortgage company to assure that the cost of any escrowed item were to increase in the future, there would be sufficient funds to pay all bills as they come due.

    What type of property will MSUFCU originate mortgage loans for?
    MSUFCU will originate a mortgage loan for single-family, owner-occupied, Michigan property. The property can be a condominium, second home or vacation home.

    What is a good faith estimate?
    This is a disclosure, required by law, that every lender must provide to the borrower within 3 days of application. This is a "best" estimate of all the figures associated with acquiring your property loan.

    Can I make my mortgage payment on ComputerLine?
    Yes. To make a mortgage payment on ComputerLine, under the "Transfers" menu, select "Share To Mortgage Transfers." Select the mortgage loan number, and click the "make a payment" button. Enter your payment amount and confirm. Once you have clicked confirm, it does not need to be clicked again. Doing so may submit more than one mortgage payment.

    I just made my mortgage payment on ComputerLine. Why can't I see it?
    When a payment is made by ComputerLine, the withdrawal will be made from your account immediately, and the payment will be reflected on your mortgage after 5 p.m. the following business day.

    Can I see my mortgage history on ComputerLine?
    Yes. Mortgage history can be viewed by clicking on the "Mortgage Loan History" option under the "History" menu on the toolbar. If you have more than one mortgage, or have refinanced your loan with us several times, there may be more than one loan option. Simply select the loan you wish to view and click "Submit."

    Can I make a principal-only payment to my mortgage on ComputerLine?
    As long as you are current on your mortgage payments for the month due, you have the option to make a principal-only payment. Proceed through the same steps as if you were making a regular mortgage payment and select "principal only" from the drop down box when asked what type of mortgage payment you are making.

    How are rates determined?
    MSUFCU surveys competitor rates on a daily basis. We base our interest rates on competitor’s rates to provide the best value for service and price for our members.

    How does credit affect my rate?
    The rate you qualify for is based upon your credit score and the terms of your mortgage. The higher your credit score, the better rate you will be qualified for. Lenders, insurance companies, employers, landlords, and many others use your credit score to determine what services they offer you and how much you will pay for them. MSUFCU will pull a tri-merge credit report, which is a report from the 3 main credit bureaus: Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. Your middle score is used to determine the interest rate. Equifax scores range from a low of 300 to a high of 850, TransUnion scores range from a low of 309 to a high of 839 and Experian scores range from a low of 320 to a high of 844.

    What is a rate lock?
    A mortgage rate lock is simply MSUFCU’s promise to hold a certain interest rate for you for a specified period of time before you close on a loan. Because interest rates have the capability of fluctuating on a daily basis, you will need to consider the costs you may pay if a rate increases or the expense of paying to lock in a lower rate. Once you close on your mortgage, your rate stays the same, unless you have a variable rate loan, in which your rate adjustments would be specified. New home purchase: The interest rate for a purchase is locked in once we receive an accepted offer to purchase a home. Refinance: Your rate is locked from when you apply when refinancing your home.

    How much does a rate lock cost?
    There is no fee to lock your rate unless the interest rate goes down during your mortgage approval process and you want to take advantage of the lower rate. If the interest rate goes down, there is a $100.00 fee to re-lock at the lower interest rate. This option is available during the entire mortgage process and up until closing.

    How long does it take to close on a mortgage?
    The turnaround time we strive to achieve is 4-6 weeks. Here is what you can expect during that time: Your mortgage application takes about one week to process. After your mortgage processing begins, MSUFCU will order appraisal and title work on your new home, and we will notify you if any additional information is required. This step will take between 2 to 4 weeks. As soon as your mortgage is processed, MSUFCU will call you to schedule a time to close on your mortgage.

    What fees will I have to pay?
    The average closing costs for an MSUFCU mortgage are around $1400 plus the cost of title insurance. This does not include prepaid interest (interest paid in advance on the loan) or escrow reserves (a fund to ensure the escrow account has sufficient funds to pay expenses). The closing costs will vary based upon your mortgage type and the amount financed.

    What are the down payment options?
    MSUFCU does offer Rural Development loans. This loan eligibility is determined by property address and income. There is no down payment required; or 100% financed. For a conventional mortgage, you have several down payment options starting as low as 5% of the sales price. If your down payment is less than 20% of your home’s value, Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is required. Examples of Down Payment Options 95/5 Financing 95% of your loan is financed with MSUFCU 5% down payment paid by applicant Private Mortgage Insurance Required 20% Down 80% financed with MSUFCU 20% down payment paid by applicant No Private Mortgage Insurance

    Do I need a home/property inspection?
    If you are a purchasing a home that is a foreclosure, a written property inspection is required. A property inspection is not required for a non-foreclosure purchase. Property inspections will be paid by the applicant and vary in cost depending on your home inspector and the size of the home being inspected.

    Where can I close on my mortgage?
    Closings generally take place at a title insurance company in your area.

    When is an escrow account required?
    Anytime you have less than 20% down or 20% equity, an escrow account must be established.

    When can I drop my PMI?
    As soon as the loan is paid down to 80% Loan-to-value, or, if after 12 months you believe you have 20% equity, you can ask MSUFCU to order an appraisal. (If Rural Development, PMI doesn’t drop off, but does re-calculate each year based on your principal balance)

    What states does MSUFCU do mortgage loans in?
    Michigan is the only state in which we can offer mortgages or home equity lines/loans.

    Why doesn't MSUFCU offer FHA loans?
    FHA loans are designed to help low- and moderate-income homebuyers finance more easily by requiring only a 3.5% down payment. Unfortunately, this financing can become more expensive for the homebuyer. FHA loans have a funding fee of 1.75% of the loan amount, which increases the principal of the loan. In addition, the required mortgage insurance rates are higher for FHA loans than for conventional loans. In many instances, if members can put 5% down instead of the 3.5% required by an FHA mortgage, a conventional mortgage will save members’ money in the long run.

    TrulyU Security
    How Do I Unlock My Account?
    If you have locked your account due to incorrect security question answers, you need to contact the credit union at 517-333-2424 or 800-678-4968, online via Live Chat, or secure email.

    We will verify your identity and provide you with a new temporary password for ComputerLine.

    How Does TrulyU Security Work?
    The TrulyU Security feature keeps track of your ComputerLine sign in patterns and learns your typical sign in behavior. If someone were to attempt to access your account, TrulyU security detects that the sign in does not match your history. Should this happen, in order to verify your identity, a security question is presented. For authorized users, providing a correct answer that matches the answer provided during enrollment is easy. Failing to provide a correct answer will deny access to the account.

    Why Is MSUFCU Offering TrulyU Security?
    MSUFCU is offering TrulyU security to add an additional layer of protection to ComputerLine and to help prevent unauthorized access to your account. Due to the rise in phishing scams and identity theft, the federal government is requiring all financial institutions to put such additional security features in place for online banking.

    Do I Have to Enroll in TrulyU Security?
    Yes, TrulyU security enrollment is required for all ComputerLine users.

    How Do I Enroll in TrulyU Security?
    You will be prompted to select 3 TrulyU Security questions when you enroll a username for your account via ComputerLine or the MSUFCU Mobile app.

    Why Do I Need to Set Up a TrulyU Username?
    TrulyU security requires a TrulyU username that is unique across the entire membership. For example, if you have 2 accounts at the credit union, each user will need a unique TrulyU username for each account.

    The TrulyU username is used to identify you and your set of questions and answers. If your account is presented with a security question and there is more than one user on the account, you select your TrulyU username and then your question will be presented.

    How Do I Change My TrulyU Security Questions/Answers?
    Sign into ComputerLine, select the My Profile icon and choose the TrulyU Security Questions tab.

    Why Is My ComputerLine Account Locked?
    If you are unable to successfully answer your security questions, your ComputerLine account will be locked and will not allow you further access. Your account will remain in locked status until you contact the Credit Union to verify your identity. Keep in mind that lockouts occur at the account level, which means that if your joint party/authorized user locks the account, neither you nor your joint party/authorized user will be able to access your ComputerLine account until it is unlocked by the Credit Union.

    Why Can't I Have the Same TrulyU Username on All My Accounts?
    Your TrulyU username(s) are matched to each account number and help to identify the questions specific to the user and account. You don't have to remember your TrulyU username, it is just a helpful tool to help you to identify yourself.

    For example, if you have two accounts, you may want to choose, "Joe Spartan 1" for the first account and "Joe Spartan 2" for the second account. The same name cannot be used for separate account. It is also a good idea to ensure your TrulyU usernames across different accounts are unique, to help differentiate your accounts.

    Can foreign characters be included in my TrulyU response?
    No, foreign characters can not be included in your TrulyU responses. Responses can include only standard US English characters. A list of valid characters is as follows:

    Visa/ATM Cards
    What is the difference between my ATM and Visa Debit card?
    Your ATM card can be used at ATMs to withdraw funds from your account. Sometimes it is accepted as a debit card. The Visa Debit Card works like an ATM card and credit card combined into one. You can use your Visa Debit Card to access funds from your account at the ATM and also make purchases at any store that accepts the Visa Debit Card. When you use the card, the amount of your purchase is automatically deducted from your checking account. Although the Visa Debit Card works like a credit card, it is NOT a line-of-credit.

    I applied for a Visa Debit/Visa Credit card. When should I expect to receive my card?
    Upon approval, your new card should arrive in approximately 7-10 days.

    How do I change the Personal Identification Number (PIN) for my MSUFCU ATM or Visa Debit Card?
    Bring your card to a nearby branch to update the PIN.

    What are the fees for the Visa Debit Card?
    The Visa Debit Card has no fees. There are unlimited transactions and the funds are debited from your checking account. Be aware that some merchants use least-cost-processing and may process your transaction as a debit card payment instead of a credit, unless you specify otherwise.
