You don't have to come into one of our branches or run to an ATM to access your Central Coast FCU account... All you need is either a touch-tone phone or a PC connected to the Internet (and we know you have one of those, otherwise you wouldn't be here!). With Audio Response Tell-A-Phone you may verify
your account and individual share balances, make loan payments and share-to-share transfers, check account histories, and so on. On any touch-tone phone, you just type in your account number and a credit union-assigned personal identification number in order to access your account 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. Online Account Access lets you do everything you can do with Tell-A-Phone and then some. Want to pay your bills online? We offer this service free of charge, regardless of the number of bills you pay! You can order checks, send us secure messages, apply for loans and much, much more!

Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance: Each member receives $1,000 in coverage at no charge. You may elect to increase this coverage at any time (as long as you are an active member) for a small, quarterly premium deducted directly from your Prime Share savings account.
Member Payment Protection: What if you were to become sick and unable to work? How would you make your loan payments? Or worse, what if you were to pass away? Do you want to leave your spouse with the burden of making loan payments? Member Payment Protection is what you need to prevent such a scenario from ever occurring...
Mechanical Breakdown Insurance: The average family drives their car 18,000-20,000 miles per year. Given that many miles driven, your vehicle could be out of its manufacturer's warranty in less than two years! And once that warranty is up you are looking at $435 for a new fuel pump, $675 for a new air conditioner compressor, $2450 for a new transmission...BIG expenses should anything go wrong! You could buy an extended warranty from the dealership- but is that the best deal? The dealer's extended warranty may only be valid if repairs are made at the dealership. It may only cover the drive train (engine and transmission). We offer Mechanical Breakdown Insurance on new and used vehicle financing. Coverage is "bumper to bumper" and you can bring the vehicle to almost any shop for required repairs. Our policies carry additional benefits such as rental, towing, tire, lockout and trip interruption coverage. You get a choice of deductibles and the total premiums can be as low as 1/2 the cost of dealership extended warranties! Call our loan officers for details.
GAP Insurance: This valuable insurance covers the difference of what you owe on your Central Coast FCU auto loan versus what the Blue Book value of the vehicle is. Why purchase GAP insurance? Say you were to get into an accident one year after purchasing your car and the car was totaled. Your insurance company would give you a settlement in the amount of the Blue Book value, regardless of what you owe on your loan. If you owed $20,000.00 and the insurance settlement was $15,000.00 you would be required to continue to make loan payments on that $5,000 difference even though you are no longer in possession of the vehicle. GAP insurance would pay that difference for you! How much is GAP coverage? Only $349.00 for the entire term of the loan (up to 84 months) for both new and used vehicles.

International Western Unions may not be available in all countries- notable exceptions are Mexico, Japan, and any country not on the "most favored trade status" list with the US government. Sorry, we do not offer Western Union "Quick Collect" Service for paying bills...
