  • Why hasn't my deposit been posted yet?
    • Contact the credit union for help at (407) 303-1527. In most cases the credit union has not yet received the funds from the depositor.
  • Can I set up an auto pay for a loan?
  • What is the ABA (routing number) for Florida Hospital Credit Union?

  • My Direct Deposit falls on a holiday. Will I get my deposit?
    • Days on which are not considered a “business day”, (i.e. Saturday, Sunday, Federal Holiday), any electronic deposits sent will not be received or posted to your account. Typically, the employer processing your electronic deposit will provide an “effective date” that your deposit will be received and posted. Please contact your employer to determine the effective date used.
  • When do direct deposits post to my account? When do Automatic Clearing House (ACH) withdrawals post to my account?
    • It is a common myth that direct deposits “hit your account at midnight”. Actually, direct deposits are posted to your account by 9 am the morning the funds are expected, except in situations beyond our control. ACH withdrawals can post at any time throughout the day so it is important to have the funds available in your account before authorizing an ACH payment.
  • When do I use my 10-digit account number and when do I use my 5-digit account number?
    • Your 10-digit account number (90000+your 5-digit account number assigned by the credit union) must be used for check items, including electronic checks. Your 5-digit account number is generally used for any activity within the credit union and direct deposits to your savings. We utilize the shorter number to make it easier to remember. If you have a long-established account with less than a 5-digit account number you will need to add an extra zero after the “90000” in order to use your 10-digit account number.

    • The routing and transit number (or ABA) is 263181287. This number can be used for all electronic transactions including direct deposit and automatic withdrawals.
  • What is the difference between a credit union and a bank? Why should I join a credit union?
    • There are many similarities and differences between credit unions and banks. These qualities may not be readily apparent because both types of businesses are part of the financial industry, offer similar products, and are federally insured.

      One of the main differences is that credit unions are democratic cooperatives and are non-profit organizations. The Board of Directors for credit unions are comprised of volunteers. Banks are for-profit organizations. The Board of Directors for banks are generally comprised of the majority shareholders.

      The benefit for members of credit unions is that the more people that participate in a credit union, the more benefits the individual member can receive. This also means that each member must pay their fair share for services. Banks will charge fees to earn a profit. Credit Unions charge fees to cover the expenses of doing business. That's why, in many cases, there are lower and fewer fees, and better rates at credit unions. Florida Hospital Credit Union also does not hide fees or charge them unexpectedly. All of our fees are published and can be found on our website by: clicking here.

      Credit Unions are also all about "People Helping People." You'll find that good service values and a strong sense of ethics is the backbone of most credit unions. When Florida Hospital Credit Union offers or sells products to members, the goal isn't to make a profit, or take advantage of someone. Member Service Representatives at Florida Hospital Credit Union are trained to offer products and services that will benefit our members. They do this by listening to the member and focusing on providing the best possible solutions.

      If you are deciding between a joining a bank or Florida Hospital Credit Union, it is a good idea to compare the services and qualities of each financial institution that will best suit your needs. An excellent source to do so is to use our website, http://www.fhcu.cc/.

Share Accounts

  • Why do I have to open a savings account if I only want to open a checking account?
    • A Credit Union is a financial cooperative organized by people who share a common bond. Members pool their assets to assist others in their cooperative. At Florida Hospital Credit Union our Board of Directors published rules in our by-laws that every member must have a savings (share) account with at least five shares ($25.00) making you a member of FHCU for life. This $25 deposit gives you the opportunity to have other services with FHCU including Checking accounts, loans, and credit cards.
  • What fees are going to be charged to me?
    • Fees are dependent upon the services which are used. Many of our products and services are free to members. Please click here to view our fee schedule.
  • Why do you call it "share account" when I asked to open a savings account?
    • Share is a Credit Union term. It is a given amount of money a person deposits with a Credit Union to become a member, which confers ownership rights, has a stated par value and pays dividends. Years ago the banking industry prevented Credit Unions from using the terms savings and checking. Credit Unions used the terms "share" for savings and "share draft" for checking. A share account is the basic savings plan of the Credit Union.
  • If I don't have enough money in checking to clear a check does the credit union transfer the money from my $25.00 in savings?
    • No. Any funds above the required $25.00 in savings are available for overdraft protection for items attempting to clear your checking account however the minimum $25.00 will remain on hold.

  • How do I send a wire from Florida Hospital Credit Union?
    • Contact the financial institution receiving the wire transfer. Request complete wiring instructions for that financial institution. (If the financial institution is outside the United States, make sure to inform them that this will be an “International Wire” and ask if there will be a secondary bank involved.)

Visit a Florida Hospital Credit Union branch in person. We do not accept wire transfers by phone. Click here for a list of branch locations. Request to send a wire transfer. Provide the other financial institution's wire instructions, your account, and the amount to send to a Member Services Representative (MSR). The MSR will verify the transaction and instructions and then debit your account for the amount of the wire and the fee. The wire is sent to the Federal Reserve, who then credits the receiving financial institution.

  • How long does it take a wire transfer to reach its destination?
    • The amount of time varies on many factors. Wires may take up to 24 hours for domestic (within the U.S.A.) transactions. The receiving institution may not post wires after a particular time. International wires may take days or weeks to reach their destination.
