Our mission is to provide exceptional financial services to our members

Helping people afford life
Welcome to Augusta Metro Federal Credit Union! We are pleased to have University Health
Federal Credit Union join with us. You are invited to take advantage of the many financial
services offered by the credit union for members, but first, there are several key elements of the
merger process with our credit union that need to be addressed. Please take a few minutes to
review the enclosed information.
By the time you get this Welcome Kit and Disclosures you might already know about the
Welcome Page on our website. If not, take a few minutes to visit www.YOURamfcu.org/WelcomeUH.
You will find current information on the merger process, such as Dates to Remember, Branch
Locations, and links to the Products and Services of Augusta Metro FCU.
NEW CHECKS FOR ALL
If you have a checking account, you
will receive complimentary checks at
no-charge no later than November
20th. Those checks will not be valid
for use until Tuesday, December 1,
2015. After December 1st, bring in
your old checks to any of the five
branches and we will be glad to shred
them for you.
NEW DEBIT CARDS
If you have an University Health FCU (UHFCU) debit card, a new
Augusta Metro FCU (AMFCU) card will be issued to you in
November. You may continue to use your UHFCU card up to 11:59
p.m. on November 30th. At that point, you should activate your
AMFCU debit card and begin using it.
Be sure to properly destroy your UHFCU debit card after you have
activated your AMFCU debit card. As with your UHFCU checks, if
you bring your debit card to any branch of AMFCU, we will be happy
to ensure that it is destroyed.
