Goodbye, Popmoney®. Hello, Zelle®
We wanted to take this opportunity to inform you that our Popmoney® personal payment service partner has decided to discontinue the Popmoney® service, effective 06/30/2023. As a result, Popmoney® will no longer be available to members of Somerset Federal Credit Union as of 06/21/2023.
In an effort to improve your online and mobile banking experience, we will be adding Zelle® to our product offerings on 06/22/2023.
Zelle® is a fast and easy way you send money to friends, family and others you trust. Payments are typically delivered within minutes to an enrolled recipient’s U.S. bank account. With Zelle® you can send and receive money for things like splitting the cost of the dinner bill or sending a last-minute gift to a loved one. We will share more information about timing and how to enroll in Zelle® soon.
