Unauthorized transactions in your savings or checking account
If you see a transaction in your account that you did not authorize, please notify us by calling (717) 569-7180 or (888) 318-4222. We will ask for details about the transaction(s) and walk you through the steps to file a dispute and protect your account from further unauthorized transactions.
Written documentation will also be needed…
- To dispute a debit card transaction: A completed Debit Dispute Form with written statement for each transaction being disputed.
- To dispute an ACH transaction: Disputed ACH transactions are most commonly for unauthorized withdrawals from an account, which requires a completed Written Statement of Unauthorized Debit form. If an authorized ACH credit has been posted to your account, please contact us for more information.
Dispute a transaction on your Platinum Visa credit card
You can dispute an unauthorized charge on your Lanco FCU Visa credit card by logging into your account using MyLancoCards online or the MyLancoCards mobile app. Locate the transaction within your history and click on the transaction for details and the option to start a dispute.

Follow the instructions provided to enter your information, and click “Submit.” Someone from our member services team will reply to you within the Message Center, typically within 1 business day, to confirm the change and request any additional details if needed.
Please note that this feature is included within the web-browser version of Online Banking only. Contact information cannot be updated within the mobile app at this time.
Do you have eAlerts enabled?
Remember that any phone number(s) or e-mail address(es) that you have enrolled in eAlerts need to be updated separately. Refer to the eAlerts instructions for more information.
Update your contact information in person
You may visit any Lanco FCU branch location to request to update your information. Please bring your current photo ID with you so we may fully update our records.
We must be able to verify your identity and ability to authorize changes to your account, and therefore do not change addresses based on phone, mail or e-mail messages.
How can I transfer money to another bank or credit union?
Set up one-time or recurring payments in Bill Payer
You can transfer funds from your Lanco FCU checking account to an account of yours at another institution by using the Pay a Person option in Bill Payer. Choose to send the money by direct deposit, and enter your routing number and account number.
Request, update, or cancel an ACH Origination
You may provide authorization for a recurring ACH transfer from your account at Lanco FCU to an account at another financial institution. To request a new transfer or to change or revoke a previously authorized transfer, please complete and return an ACH Origination Application form.
How can I send money to another person?
Transfer funds to another Lanco FCU member account
If the person you want to send money to is a Lanco FCU member and has shared their account number and share or loan ID with you, you can use the “Transfer to Another Member” option in online banking to make one-time, immediate transfers.
You may also make immediate transfers or schedule transfers to another member by calling Gabby, Lanco FCU’s automated telephone banking, and following the menu options for funds transfers.
Send a payment to another person by e-mail
To easily send a payment to another person, you can use the Pay a Person option in Bill Payer. All you need to know is that person’s e-mail address. When you send the payment, you will create and share a keyword, which like a password that the recipient will use to retrieve the payment you send. For more information, watch this video showing how to pay a person with Bill Payer.
How do I send or receive a wire transfer?

What happens if I overdraw my account?
Overdraft Protection and Overdraft Privilege
Lanco FCU believes it is important for you to use your checking account responsibly and never intentionally overdraw your account. However, we realize that financial shortfalls happen from time to time, and we have services in place to protect you from being charged excessive fees and having overdraft items returned.
In the event that you overdraw your checking account, Lanco FCU will first attempt to pay the overdraft item by transferring money from your designated savings account. If your designated account cannot cover the item because there are not enough available funds, the item may be covered by Overdraft Privilege. Refer to the Overdraft Protection Disclosure for additional information about these services, eligibility and more.
Does Lanco FCU offer safe deposit boxes?
Rent a safe deposit box in Lancaster
Lanco FCU offers a variety of boxes at our branch located at 349 West Roseville Road in Lancaster, with prices ranging from $16.00 to $45.00 annually. Renting a safe deposit box in Lanco FCU’s vault can provide you with secure storage of important items. Safe deposit boxes are fire-, water-, and theft-resistant. Click here for safe deposit box information including available sizes and guidance about what to store—and what not to store—in a safe deposit box.
How can I review my credit report?
Request your credit report for free from AnnualCreditReport.com
Each year, you are entitled to 1 free credit report from each of the 3 credit bureaus: Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. AnnualCreditReport.com is the ONLY authorized source to get your free annual credit report under federal law.
TIP: If you are not using a credit monitoring service to alert you of any changes to your credit reports, you may want to view only one report every four months. This way, you’ll be able to check up on your credit history more frequently than viewing all reports at once.
Where can I get trusted information about credit unions and personal finance?
NCUA consumer website
MyCreditUnion.gov is the National Credit Union Administration’s consumer website that provides consumers and credit union members of all ages and life stages important financial literacy and personal finance information and resources. You’ll find trusted information about the share insurance fund, fraud prevention, credit unions, and personal finance.
