Security Center

The security of your information is our top priority

In today's always-connected world, the security of your personal information has never been more important. San Mateo Credit Union is committed to making investments in security and giving our members the tools they need to stay safe.

If you have received a call, text or email from the SMCU fraud monitoring service, a temporary block has been placed on your card until you are able to confirm the legitimacy of the transaction. If you have questions, please call our Contact Center during business hours.

If you receive a phone call claiming to be from SMCU asking you to verify account information, do not reply or provide any information. SMCU will never call or text to ask you to verify information about your card such as your PIN, or a code. Do not rely on Caller ID as confirmation the call is from San Mateo Credit Union.
