What is the difference between a Security Savings Account and a Checking Account?

Your Checking Account is intended for daily spending needs, while your Security Savings Account is for building savings and potentially long-term wealth. Think of it like this: one for now and one for later.

Can I become a Meed user using my existing bank account?

No, you must establish a Meed account with a Meed Member Bank to join Meed.

How do I make a mobile deposit?

If available, checks can be deposited directly from your mobile phone. Simply open the More menu and click on Check Deposit, then follow the simple instructions.

Why is my deposit automatically being swept into my Security Savings Account?

When signing up with a Meed Member Bank, you are given the option to automatically have the outstanding balance of the Line of Credit automatically reviewed to determine if there is an amount owed. If you choose to automatically move funds from your checking account to the loan payment balance, the funds will be moved automatically to cover the outstanding amount. This is done to help limit your interest charges, and provide automated management tools for your financial well-being. This service is optional and requires you to opt in.

Are there special circumstances that allow me to withdraw from my Security Savings Account?

Yes, each Member Bank has established hardship rules that allow users to withdraw funds from their Security Savings Account without penalty. You have the option of withdrawing on demand outside of such hardship rules; however, in such instances your Meed Member Bank accounts will be closed. Please check with your Member Bank for the specific details on qualifying for a hardship withdrawal.

What should I do if I plan to use my card while traveling abroad?

You should always alert your bank in advance of traveling abroad so the account isn’t frozen while traveling due to suspicious activity.

What do I do if my account has been compromised or reflects unauthorized charges?

Immediately contact your Member Bank and let them know of the situation so they can protect your account and further investigate the circumstances.

My phone/Meed card got stolen. How do I make sure my Meed Member Bank account is safe?

Please note that when you report your card as lost or stolen, we will immediately deactivate your card and send a new card with a new account number to you for your protection.
