Fairfield County offers a Bill Payer service that takes all the work out of paying your bills at a minimal charge. Bill Payer can pay up to 40 of your creditors by drawing funds from your checking account. We offer three options to make paying bills easy.
Automatic Payments - You can arrange for automatic monthly payments on bills that are due at the same time for the same amount each month (mortgage, insurance, etc.) These bills will be paid automatically each month.
Pay by Phone – You can pay bills with a different amount each month (such as utilities, credit cards, etc) by calling our Voice Line and following the instructions for bill payment. Payments will be sent out the next business day after your call.
Delayed Payments – You can update your list of creditors at anytime. You can call Voice Line to schedule a non-automatic payment for any date within thirty days of your call. Confirmation of your bill payments is made on your monthly statement.
With our Automated Response System – Voice Line – transferring funds and balancing your checkbook become easier than ever. By using a touch tone telephone and your PIN you can inquire about balances, make transfers, find which checks have cleared, check on payroll deduction, apply for a loan and much more. Call 203-969-2340
or 203-368-2340 to access the Voice Line service.

You never have to worry about overdrawing your account again with our safety net – overdraft protection product. You can apply for a Line of Credit that will guarantee that your checks are paid. Lines of Credit are available up to $10,000.
If a member does not
have a "linked account" or an overdraft line of credit with available funds, the
credit union may pay overdrafts up to a aggregate amount of $500.00 including
fees. Essentially this is a short-term credit facility that is available to
established members in good standing with the credit union. The member must
repay the overdraft within a ten day period. The payment of this type of
overdraft coverage is discretionary on the part of the credit union and the
credit union has no legal obligation to pay any overdraft for any member.
