An important way to protect money coming to you, through Interac e-Transfers, is to set up a feature called Autodeposit. Once the Autodeposit feature has been set up, money being sent to you will automatically be deposited into your Credit Union account. There are no security questions to answer anymore, saving you time and the stress of trying to guess the answer to the security question before being locked out after three tries! The Autodeposit feature protects your incoming Interac e-Transfer money even if your email account has been compromised. To find out how to enable this feature, please follow the instructions listed in the Autodeposit fact sheet by clicking on the link below.
