Bring your personal check, drawn on your Freedom Account, to any Freedom branch and have it Certified for free.
Free Coin Counting
Freedom offers FREE, self-service, coin counting machines at every Freedom branch. Bring in your loose change and deposit it into our coin counting machine, located in the branch lobby. It's simple!
- Deposit your loose coins into the machine.
- The coin counting machine will quickly tally your total.
- Print your receipt and bring it to the teller to receive your cash.
Remember, this convenient service is free for all Freedom Members and Non-Members. Have your children or grandchildren bring in their coins to start saving for the future! It's never too early to teach the young people in your life good savings habits.
Freedom Members can buy money orders at any Freedom branch while utilizing our other convenient services. Money orders work just like a check. You can use them to pay bills up to a maximum amount of $1,000 per money order. There is a low fee of $1 per money order and they are easy to request and use. We will simply withdraw the amount for the money order plus the $1 per fee from any one of your accounts. We type the dollar amount on the Money Order, so all you have to do is write in the name of the payee.
Free Notary Service
Want something notarized for free? Each Freedom branch normally has a Notary Public available. If you need to be sure that a Notary Public will be available, please call the branch to set up an appointment.
The Credit Union has Notaries Public commissioned by the State of Pennsylvania to witness and certify signatures on documents. We also offer Signature Guarantees, described below, for your documents requiring extra security.
Free Signature Guarantees
Many securities transactions require that your signature be guaranteed as authentic by a financial institution with which you have an account. Freedom is a participant in the STAMP Medallion Signature Guarantee Program, and offers this convenient service to our Members free of charge. Freedom will guarantee signatures on any transaction up to $100,000. Simply bring your entire document to any Freedom branch.
For added convenience, First-Class Stamps, in booklets of 20, are available at all Freedom branches. The price for these booklets is the same as for those sold by the U.S. Postal Service. Freedom charges no stamp service fee for Members or Non-Members.
Freedom Gift Cards
Finding the perfect gift just got easier! Everyone enjoys the convenience of a Visa Gift Card. It's the ideal choice for birthdays, holidays, weddings and all your gift-giving occasions. Members can obtain one for a $1.50 fee at any Freedom branch. Discover the advantages:
- Flexibility: Recipients can buy what they want, when they want — whether shopping online, in person, or by phone.
- Protection: It's safer than cash and can be replaced if lost or stolen. Plus, it provides the protection and security features you've come to expect from Visa.
- Choice: Visa Gift Cards can be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted — that means millions of places to choose the perfect gift. And because it's a prepaid card, spending is limited to the amount of money placed on the Card for your recipient.
Already have a Visa Gift Card?
Verify your remaining Card balance to ensure that your next purchase transaction is approved. Visit the website of the financial institution that issued the Gift Card, or call their toll-free customer service number. You may also determine your balance when making a purchase at certain merchant locations.
