Visa Debit Card – Instant Issue
Visa Gift Cards
Gift giving is more convenient with the help of a Visa Gift Card. It’s a pre-paid, non-reloadable card that’s similar to retail and department store gift cards— but with more flexibility. Rather than being limited to one store, Visa Gift Cards can be used almost anywhere Visa Debit Cards are accepted. Visa Gift Cards are also great presents for college students away from home and are an alternative option for parents who want their children to have money on hand for emergencies.
Visa Gift Cards can be purchased at any of our branches for any amount between $25 and $500.1 Once purchased, a card can be activated by going to the Online Card Access website or by calling 855.428.7243. You can also verify your balance and update your personal information online. (Please use the same website address and phone number to report a Visa Gift Card lost or stolen.)

Official checks, also known as bank or cashier’s checks, are often used for making large purchases, such as a home or automobile. Since the funds for the check are guaranteed, you may request a check for any amount up to your available account balance. As part of our rewards program, members with an HVFCU free checking account and Visa Debit Card with rewards earn free official checks. Members without a Visa Debit Card are assessed a $7.00 fee for official checks.
Money orders provide convenience when checks or credit cards are not accepted for payment purposes. Money orders offer great flexibility. They can be purchased for any amount up to $1,000, and are valid for three years from the date of purchase. We also offer a unique PaySmart account that allows you to purchase money orders at a discounted rate.
Western Union Commercial Money Orders (CMOs)
