Visit our credit union in Harlingen for services that will help you achieve your savings goals!

Our Mobile Money App

Valley Federal Credit Union members have access to our Mobile Money App. With this service, you can do anything from check your balance, make transfers and view your transaction history. How does this help you contribute to the environment? Well, if you want to make a transfer, you’d have to drive to your nearest financial institution.


eStatements (financial statements sent electronically via email) help cut down on paper usage. eStatements, also known as digital statements, can be sent to customers to inform them about their account statements, credit card statements and investments. They can be viewed on tablets, laptops, desktops or mobile devices.

Electronic Money Transfers

Sending electronic money transfers reduces the amount of paper used for checks and account drafts, not to mention that they also reduce the use of paper currency. For example, if you want to transfer money to another VFCU account, not only is it convenient, it will also save you a trip to our credit union.

A Mobile Convenience

Accessing your account from your smartphone or home isn’t just convenient; it helps with reducing vehicle trips. This reduces pollution and lowers monoxide emissions that can harm our atmosphere. It doesn’t matter where you are or what time it is, with our mobile app, you can save yourself gas and money.


Many retail vendors offer their customers eBills in lieu of paper statements each month. Getting a monthly bill by email ensures that it will never be lost while avoiding late fees. It also reduces the need for printing, paper and ink. As you might imagine, this cuts down on paper as well.
