OCSU Visa® Debit Card

An Ocean State Credit Union Visa® Debit Card that works like a check, only better! When making purchases, the amount purchased is deducted directly from your Ocean State Credit Union Checking Account. The OSCU Visa® Debit Card is valid anywhere that Visa® is accepted.

How Does it Work?

Debit Card transactions are automatically deducted from your OSCU Checking Account and typically posted within 24 hours of your purchase. So you may check your updated balance and transaction record via your Online Banking services at OceanStateCU.org or dial into the Telephone Banking system at (800) 822-8077.

Security and Account Tracking

When you sign for your purchases, the money comes directly from your OSCU Checking Account, but you also have the added benefit of security features to help prevent, detect and resolve fraud. You will be able to track your transactions each month when you receive your Checking Account Statement with the details of each purchase including merchant name, location, date and amount.

ATM Access

The OSCU Visa® Debit Card also offers convenient, 24-hour access to your Ocean State Credit Union accounts at thousands of ATMs that are part of the NYCE®, Cirrus® and Credit Union Connection networks (applicable fees may apply).
