The days of worrying that you will forget about an upcoming payment due date are over!  Thanks to our brand new payment reminder text program, PayPrompt, you can receive text messages that will remind you of your upcoming loan payments with Education First FCU.  Best of all, it's free! 

Beginning January 12, we will be sending out text messages to all Education First FCU members who have an active loan with us and have provided a mobile telephone number.  The first text you receive will be a message from 32576 asking if you would like to opt in for PayPrompt
 text alerts.  The alert will look like this:

Once you opt in, PayPrompt will remind you 10 and 3 days before your payment due date.  If your loan payment is not made on the due date, PayPrompt will text you again 3 days after your missed due date. 

All you have to do to opt-in for PayPrompt
