Q. Why is my available balance less than my actual balance?
A. If you use your debit card to make a purchase, the company may place a hold on the funds until they submit the actual debit. This means that although the money is in your account, it will be withdrawn in the very near future. A hold placed on a check deposited to your account will also cause the available balance to be less than the actual balance. Please keep in mind that your savings account must always have a $5.00 balance. That $5.00 is held in the savings and is not reflected as being available.
Q. How do I add another person to my account?
A. You can have another person added to your account by stopping into one of our offices and requesting that the person be added to your account. We will need the person being added to your account to come in with two forms of valid identification. We need all of the account holders to sign a new signature card before the new name will be added to the account.
Q. How do I remove someone from my account?
A. The joint owner must sign a form to have their name removed from the account. The form is available with any of our Member Service Representatives. You can also download the form, fill it in completely and mail or bring it into any location. The form must be signed signed in front of a SeaComm Representative or a Notary Public.
Q. How do I change my address on my account?
A. To protect you from Identity Theft, SeaComm requires that you sign a change of address form. If you are unable to come in to one of our offices, a written request with your signature will be fine. If you have access to your account through the Home Branch, you may change your address there also. A signature is required to change any address unless it is done on Home Branch where we have already properly identified you.

Q. I authorized a company to debit my account once, and now they have done it again. What should I do?
A. You should first try to contact the company that debited your account to resolve it with them. We recommend this method first, because it is the quickest way for you to have the money returned to your account. If you can not resolve the unauthorized debit with the company, please come into one of our offices immediately. We will have you sign an unauthorized debit form. We can start working on having your money returned once we have your signature on the form. At that time, we can also establish the method of debit and how to stop it from occurring again.

A. We must receive a request from you before either card can be ordered. An ATM card is used primarily to receive funds from an ATM. You must have a checking account to request a debit card. Debit cards allow you to access your funds through an ATM machine as well as make purchases anywhere that Visa is accepted. We accept requests for these cards in person or via the telephone.
