If you have installed iOS 14.5, you will need to revert to iOS 14.4 to access your accounts via TCCU's Mobile Banking App. If you need help reverting to iOS 14.4, contact Apple directly.

What Causes a Dormant Account?
An account is considered dormant when there has been no activity (deposit or withdrawal) for 12 months. Once an account becomes dormant, it becomes subject to being reported as unclaimed and escheatable to the State of Texas.
What Can You Do to Prevent a Dormant Account?
- Keep your account active by making at least one deposit, withdrawal or transfer from your account per year
- Set up a Direct Deposit
- Use your ATM/Debit or Credit Cards
- Conduct regular transactions on your account
If your account is currently in dormancy status, you will need to conduct a transaction on your account to prevent your account from being reported as unclaimed.
Any account that is considered dormant for three years or more is required to be escheated to the State of Texas
- The Credit Union will make necessary attempts to contact dormant accounts before the funds are escheated
- This makes it essential to have updated addresses and phone numbers on your account(s)
- Consider signing up for email notifications in order to receive important messages, such as account notifications
We value your membership and encourage you to take advantage of the many services TCCU can provide you. If you have any questions about the dormant or escheatment account process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
