Why can’t I make a loan payment with a Visa credit card anymore?
Visa has updated its policy regarding loan payments as of July 31, 2017. After the update, Visa no longer allows anyone to use Visa credit cards to make loan or debt payments.
Who does this loan payment policy update impact?
Since this policy change is from Visa, it impacts anyone who uses a Visa credit card to make loan or debt payments. This policy update is from Visa, not Suncoast Credit Union. So it could impact anyone who has a Visa credit card, no matter what financial institution it is from.
What will happen if I try to make a loan payment with a Visa credit card after July 31, 2017?
If you try to make a loan payment with a Visa credit card after July 31, the transaction will be declined and it may result in a late payment.
What should I do if my loan payments are automatically set up with a Visa credit card?
If you have automatic loan payments set up with a Visa credit card, please make sure to change the payment type before the card is charged. As of July 31, the transaction will be declined and it may result in a late payment.
What alternate payment methods can I use to make my loan payments?
If you usually pay for your loan or debt payment with a Visa credit card, you will need to choose a new payment option to avoid late charges or declined transactions.
Here are some alternative payment methods:
- ACH autopay set up through Suncoast
- Automatic payments from Suncoast checking or savings account(s)
- Transfers from Suncoast checking or saving account(s) via SunTel, SunNet Online Banking or the SunMobile app
- Pay in-person at a branch
- Pay by mail
- Pay over the phone by calling the Member Care Center at 800.999.5887
- Bill pay through another financial institution

Checks for all other checking accounts are available for purchase.
What do I do if I get a check made out to multiple payees?
If you get a check that is made out to more than one payee, all parties need to endorse the check before it can be deposited.
For example, you might get an insurance check after hurricanes or other disasters. These checks could include multiple names and even your financial institution or mortgage company as payees. In this case, you would need to get your financial institution or mortgage company to endorse your check along with the people listed on the check.
You can bring the check to your financial institution to get an endorsement. Contact your mortgage company directly to learn the best way to get their endorsement on your check.

- Stay aware of your surroundings, especially at night
- Don’t use an ATM if you observe any suspicious persons or circumstances
- Have your ATM card ready in your hand as you approach the ATM
- Use your other hand or body to shield the keyboard so no one can see you enter your PIN
- Always take your receipts with you to keep your account information confidential
- Put your money into your pocket or purse immediately; do not count or display any money you received from the ATM until you are somewhere private
- If you’re using a drive-up ATM, roll up all passenger windows and lock all doors
- If you leave your car and walk to the ATM, park somewhere close and lock your car behind you
How can I tell if an ATM has been compromised with a skimming device?
You should always visually inspect an ATM for possible skimming devices before you use it. Potential indicators can include:
- Sticky residue or evidence of an adhesive used to affix the device to the ATM
- Scratched, damaged or crooked ATM parts
- Loose or extra attachments on the ATM’s card slot
- Noticeable resistance when pressing the ATM keypad
If you notice any of these things, do not use the ATM and notify your financial institution.
Should I take any special precautions for when using an ATM at night?
While it’s important to stay alert every time you use an ATM, there are some extra things you can do to remain safe at night:
- Park in a well-lit area close to the ATM
- Don’t use an ATM if the lights at the ATM are not working
- Take another person with you when possible
- If your view of the ATM or its surrounding area is blocked by overgrown shrubbery, a tree or any other object, select another ATM and notify your financial institution
