What will happen with my CDFCU online banking?
Existing users: you do not need to enroll; when logging in to STCU online banking for the first time, please add “STCU” to the end of your CDFCU username. For example:
- CDFCU username: Jane_Doe1985

What about billpay?
Access to CDFCU billpay ends after 11:59 p.m. on September, 23. Scheduled payments to businesses and their information will convert automatically. However, E-Bills and payments to individuals, and their information, will not convert automatically and will need to be setup in STCU billpay. Access to STCU billpay starts October 4.
What about my CDFCU debit card?
You will receive your STCU debit card(s) the week of September 20. Once activated, your card will be functional at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 30. Your CDFCU debit card will be deactivated at 10:00 p.m. that night. Please note that STCU debit cards can only be attached to one checking account and one savings account.
You have three options for activating your STCU debit card(s):
- Go to stcu.org/activate;
- Call (866) 762-0558 from your primary phone number;
- Or use the PIN shown on the mailer to activate the card by making a purchase — or checking your balance at the ATM — starting mid-day September 30.
If you choose one of the first two options, you can ignore the PIN mailer. You can also change your PIN anytime at stcu.org/activate or by calling (866) 762-0558.
Do STCU and CDFCU offer the same services?
You’ll find that your CDFCU accounts align well with similar accounts at STCU. STCU offers an array of deposit and lending products, home loans, credit cards, online and mobile banking and more. And like CDFCU, STCU is federally insured by NCUA.
Here are some commonly asked questions.

Like CDFCU, STCU offers business checking and savings accounts, plus an expanded range of business services like traditional and rewards business credit cards, ACH origination, payroll, remote deposit capture, sweeps, and more. Explore STCU business products and services.
What will happen to my direct deposits (paychecks, retirement, Social Security, etc.)?
Direct deposits, ACH transactions, and even checks will continue to be processed.
After the merger, if you need to set up a direct deposit, please use your new, 10-digit STCU account number, and STCU’s routing number.
What will happen to my automatic payments?
Much like direct deposits, automatic ACH payments made with your account and routing number will convert automatically.

Why a merger makes sense.
Our two member-owned credit unions share a commitment to employees, members, and communities. CDFCU chose a partner that will grow and enhance its ability to serve members, and STCU will be able to provide a convenient branch experience for about 3,000 existing members who live in the communities CDFCU serves.
In addition, STCU has the resources to meet challenges that are increasingly difficult for small and medium-sized credit unions, like providing the technological tools, and financial services and products that ensure a strong future. As an STCU member, you’ll have free access to a nationwide network of thousands of participating surcharge-free ATMs.
The future of CDFCU employees.
We know that CDFCU employees are your friends and neighbors. We have every intention of keeping them around to continue serving you!
