We are proud to introduce the RMLEFCU Law Enforcement Support Sticker. By purchasing a sticker, you show your support for local law enforcement AND benefit local charities!

Talk about a win-win!

Stickers can be purchased for $1 at any RMLEFCU branch and profits from the sales will be divided between the Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation and the Denver Police Foundation.

Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation

The Colorado Fallen Hero Foundation is a nonprofit organization made up of Colorado law enforcement officers and civilian personnel who serve in a voluntary capacity. They assist and provide support to agencies and families of fallen officers in order to allow them to honor and grieve their loss. They assist with funeral planning to whatever extent the family and agency desire and work as a much-needed support system in a time of need.

Denver Police Foundation

The Denver Police Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports the Denver Police Department by providing funds and equipment for important programs that would otherwise not be possible through the regular City budget. They work to raise funds that support a variety of initiatives in the Denver community including:

  • Broadening Community Outreach
  • Promoting Officer and Community Safety
  • Advancing Innovative Technology and Training
  • Increasing Awareness of and Recognize Departmental Service

Why Can You Only Do 6 Transfers a Month?

reg d

Why “Reg D” puts a limit on your savings account, and what you can do to get around it.

 

Savings accounts are perfect for stashing your cash. But you may have run into the issue of only being able to transfer money from one a maximum of six times per month. Why is this? We’ll go over why you’re limited and how you can get around it.

Regulation D

You are limited to six transfers per month from a savings account as a result of Regulation D — commonly known as “Reg D”. Reg D is a Federal Reserve Board rule that helps ensure that financial institutions like RMLEFCU have a proper amount of reserves on hand. A useful side effect, of course, is that savings accounts function as they are intended: to save money, not spend it.

When Are You Limited?

The six-transfer limit (and a potential penalty) falls under certain scenarios and depends on the type of transaction being conducted. The following transactions count toward the six-transfer limit:

  • Online transfers between accounts at RMLEFCU or other institutions
  • Transfers processed over the phone
  • Automatic transfers, such as bill payments
  • Overdraft transfers from savings to checking
  • Transfers made by check or debit card

Some transfers don’t count toward the limit of six, such as those made at ATMs, made in person at the teller window, or withdrawals made by phone where the check is mailed to you.

How to Get Around Them

The Reg D rules don’t really have to be much of an impediment on your savings account, and there are simple ways to get around them. For instance, a checking account won’t put limits on usage, and can make a lot more sense for making bill payments or keeping cash on hand. You can also make transfers count by doing fewer of them with larger sums of money as opposed to small, frequent ones.

If you do reach your six transactions, keep in mind you can skirt the Reg D limit (and any resultant fees) by heading for the ATM — or a RMLEFCU teller window. Your money is your money, and we’ll help you keep it at hand.

How a Personal Loan Can Work for You!

personal loan

At RMLEFCU, we take pride in offering our members various products and services that they not only want and need but will help make their lives a bit easier. That being said, one of the most versatile and popular loans that we offer is our personal loan. It is easy to obtain and can be used for a variety of different things. Need some inspiration? Here are a few great ways an RMLEFCU personal loan can be used!

Job Equipment

We know getting new job equipment can take a toll on your wallet. That’s why we recommend using the personal loan as an equipment loan to cover costs of gear and work expenses. The competitive rates and variety of repayment terms available make it an easy way to fund up-front expenses, worry free!

Home Improvement Projects

Home improvement projects can be a costly up-front expense. Using a personal loan to cover all or some of the costs of home improvements or renovations can lessen the initial blow to your bank account and gives you the flexibility for lower monthly payments. Now doesn’t that new kitchen sound more realistic?

Higher Education

At RMLEFCU, we want you to follow your dreams and want to help get you there however we can! Our personal loan is the perfect way to fund the steep costs of higher education and pay them off slowly and on your terms. Loan amounts are available up to $10,000 and you have the flexibility to decide which repayment term is best for you.

& Many More

The RMLEFCU personal loan knows no limits! Whether an unexpected event occurred, or your personal project needs funding, we’re here to help. We offer competitive rates and attentive friendly service from start to finish. Contact a loan specialist at (303) 458-6660 or apply directly online!
