Welcome to Chelsea Employees Federal Credit Union, a cooperative financial institution for the employees and family members of the City of Chelsea, the Chelsea Housing Authority and the Chelsea Restoration Corporation.
Chelsea Employees FCU is pleased to introduce CardValet®, a mobile card app that helps reduce account fraud by allowing members to monitor accounts with their smartphone and control how, when and where their debit card is used.
CardValet is available in the Apple® App Store or Google® Play. Once CardValet is set up, cardholders have the ability to “turn off” their card when not in use, establish transaction spending limits and decline a transaction when the amount exceeds a predefined threshold.
CEFCU is excited to offer this tool to our cardholders! Not only is CardValet user-friendly and convenient, but it will aide in our continued efforts to prevent fraud and identity theft for our members.
