Visa Debit Card

Our debit card gives you a faster, more economical, more convenient way to buy the products and services you need. That’s because it allows you to withdraw funds from your checking account without ever having to write out a check. You can use it at any merchant where VISA is accepted.

In addition, your Visa debit card can be used as an ATM card at any ATM displaying Cirrus , accel, or Visa. Daily transaction limit is $300 per day. There are no ATM fees if used at any of our First Federal of SC, FSB ATM locations.

In order to protect our customers from fraudulent activity, First Federal blocks transactions out of your normal spending area. If you plan to travel outside of your normal spending area, please contact customer service at 843-549-2526.

If your Visa debit card is lost or stolen, please contact a Customer Service Representative at any of our office locations during regular business hours. If you need to report that your card has been lost or stolen after First Federal of SC, FSB business hours, please call:

Hot Card Service Center: 1-800-554-8969

Overdraft Privilege

With Overdraft Privilege, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, we have the option to cover your overdrafts up to a certain amount, including fee(s), thereby saving you the embarrassment and inconvenience of a returned or declined item, as well as the fee normally charged to you by the merchants for items returned to them.Overdraft Privilege

The amount of the Overdraft Privilege is not shown in your available balance, but may be available to you for in-person withdrawals, checks, telephone and internet banking transactions, and ACH transactions. Overdraft Privilege may also be available for ATM withdrawals and debit card purchases after you opt in. There is no obligation to opt in; however, we may not approve ATM card and debit card transactions that will result in an overdrawn balance. You may opt out of the program at any time by visiting a branch office or contacting Account Services at 843-549-2526.

Overdraft Privilege is a service provided to help you, should an overdraft occur. Your account will still be charged the standard overdraft fee for handling each item, which is the same fee that First Federal of South Carolina charges for items drawn against insufficient funds and returned to the payee. If multiple items are presented against your account on the same day, each item will be assessed the appropriate overdraft fee or returned item fee.

Your account must be brought to a positive balance within 30 days of the overdraft, and the balance must remain positive for 24 hours, or the Overdraft Privilege may be revoked.

Overdraft Protection

With overdraft protection, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, available funds are transferred from another checking or savings account to avoid overdraft or returned items fees. The amount of the overdraft will be transferred only if it is available in the linked account.

Overdraft protection is available upon your request and requires a signed authorization.

We appreciate your business and want to make sure you have the information you need to make the right decision for you. If you have any question regarding our overdraft services, simply visit the branch nearest you, or contact account services at 843-549-2526.

Automated Telephone Teller

Need account access after bank hours? No problem! First Federal's Automated Telephone Teller service allows customers to obtain up-to-date account information, to transfer funds between accounts, or to make loan payments through 24-hour telephone access. A touch-tone phone is required to access accounts directly, but customers will reach the Customer Service Department during business hours if a rotary phone is used. To access accounts, callers are required to register by entering a nine-digit Social Security number and an eight-digit birth date that corresponds to the account identification information. The system will then prompt the caller to enter a four digit (customer defined) personal identification number (PIN).

If you are in Colleton County, please use the local number. Only use the toll-free number if you are calling long distance.
