There are no annual fees associated with a Salal debit card. It is free to use and all transactions using a Salal ATM are free of charge, although there is a 1% Foreign ATM or debit transaction fee. A surcharge may be assessed at machines owned by other financial institutions, but our participation in the CO-OP and CULIANCE Networks gives you access to more than 40,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide.

As long as you report that your card has been lost, stolen, or fraudulently used, the most you would be responsible for is $50.00 if your card is used as a PIN-based transaction. If you report the loss or unauthorized use to Salal within 48 hours, or if the transaction in question is signature-based, you will not be held liable for any funds lost. If you suspect that your check card is lost, stolen, or is being used fraudulently please call 800.562.5515 immediately.

We can issue you a replacement for your lost or stolen debit card right away at any Salal branch. If you are unable to visit a branch, please call us at 206.298.9394 or 800.562.5515.

The first $225 of the combined daily total of deposits will be made available on the day of deposit. Funds deposited at a branch of the Credit Union and payable to you from the U.S. Treasury or Government, or by cashier’s, certified, or teller’s checks, or postal money orders will generally be made available the first business day following the business day of the deposit. For other types of checks deposited funds will be made available the second business day after the day of deposit.

If you make a deposit after posted business hours or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open.

If you make a deposit at a Salal ATM or through Mobile Check Deposit in our mobile app, there is a 2 business day hold on the amount over $225.00.

Deposits made through Shared Branching may be subject to a 2-5 day business hold.

Funds from the following deposits could be available immediately provided they are payable to you: Cash, Cashier’s Checks, U.S. Treasury Checks, Traveler’s Checks, Wire Transfers, State and Local Government Checks, Federal Reserve Bank Checks, Federal Home Loan Bank Checks, Payroll Checks of local or well-known firms. Other deposits may be required to clear the financial institution from where they originated from before they are available to you.

Please be advised that unique circumstances may impact the actual delay you may experience.
