You can send money to friends, family and others you trust2.
Since money is sent directly from your bank accounts to another person’s bank account within minutes1, it’s important to only send money to people you trust, and always ensure you’ve used the correct email address or U.S. mobile number.
Zelle is a fast, safe and easy way to send money directly between almost any bank accounts in the U.S., typically within mintues1. With just an email address or U.S. mobile phone number, you can send money to people you trust, regardless of where they bank2.
The three payment methods are:
- On the payment date you specify, an electronic credit is sent to your biller and an electronic debit is sent to your account. Your account will be electronically debited on your scheduled payment date. This method is used when the company or biller you are paying has an electronic agreement set up with our Bill Pay partner.
- Electronic-to-check payment – A check is drawn on our Bill Pay partner’s account and mailed to your biller several days prior to the payment date you specify. Your account will be electronically debited on your scheduled payment date.
- Laser-printed check – A check, drawn on your account with your account encoding printed on the bottom, is mailed to the biller. Billers receiving laser checks deposit them just like ordinary checks. Your account will be debited as if you had written a personal check, when the biller cashes the check and it is presented for payment.
NOTE: If you are not sure how your biller is going to be paid, plan on the money coming out of your account right away by deducting it from your check register. If your biller received a laser check, the money will not come out of your account until they cash it, however; it would be wise to deduct this amount from your check register right away, similarly to when you write a personal check.

No. Checking Credit Sense is a “soft inquiry”, which does not affect your credit score. Lenders use ‘hard inquiries’ to make decisions about your creditworthiness when you apply for loans.
No, Peninsula Credit Union uses its own lending criteria for making loan.
There are three major credit-reporting bureaus—Equifax, Experian and Transunion—and two scoring models—FICO or VantageScore—that determine credit scores. Financial institutions use different bureaus, as well as their own scoring models. Over 200 factors of a credit report may be taken into account when calculating a score and each model may weigh credit factors differently, so no scoring model is completely identical. No matter what credit bureau or credit scoring model is used, consumers do fall into specific credit ranges: Excellent 781–850, Good 661-780, Fair 601-660,
Unfavorable 501-600, Bad Below 500.
Credit Sense pulls your credit profile from TransUnion, one of the three major credit reporting bureaus, and uses VantageScore 3.0, a credit scoring model developed collaboratively by the three major credit bureaus: Equaifax, Experian, and TransUnion. This model seeks to make score information more uniform between the three bureaus to provide consumers a better picture of their credit health.
As long as you are a regular online banking user, your credit score will be updated every month and displayed in your online banking screen. You can click “refresh score” as frequently as every day by navigating to the detailed Credit Sense site from within online banking.
No. Credit Sense is entirely free and no credit card information is required to register.
Credit Sense Credit Report provides you all the information you would find on your credit file including a list of open loans, accounts and credit inquiries. You will also be able to see details on your payment history, credit utilization and public records that show up on your account. Like Credit Score, when you check your credit report, there will be no impact to your score.
Credit Sense is a comprehensive Credit Score program offered by Peninsula Credit Union, that helps you stay on top of your credit. You get your latest credit score and report, an understanding of key factors that impact the score, and can see the most up to date offers that can help reduce your interest costs.
