02-29-2024 Citizen's Center Triton ARGO ATM02-29-2024 Ocala Airport Hyosung ATM

In May 2024, Due to SHAZAM sunsetting Dial Up, Ocala Community Credit Union upgraded these two ATMs from Dial Up to Broadband/Internet in coordination with SHAZAM, Ocala Fiber Network, & Absolute Financial Services. These went from taking 12-15 seconds through Dial Up to now only 1 second through Ocala Fiber Network from the time the user completes their selection and sends encrypted to SHAZAM and back asking you to remove your card. – Yes, Amazingly Fast! In addition, these will be up & running more reliably now. This project took months. Thanks goes out to Eric & Edward of Ocala Fiber Network in assisting with these updated configurations. (L-R: Ocala Citizen’s Center, Ocala International Airport)


02-29-2024 OcalaPD Hyosung ATM
In April 2024, SHAZAM Sunset Dial Up ATMs, thus OCCU pulled its ATM out of the Ocala Police Department. Timing on this was good as our ATM Agreement with Ocala PD was up and this would not have been cost effective to upgrade to broadband/internet service due to SHAZAM’s new monthly billing for such and lack of usage at that location. (Special Thanks to Steve, & Mr. Hope of OcalaPD for assisting with this removal.)


UBS Logo
In April 2024, OCCU converted our Investment Portfolio over to UBS Wealth Management USA to save on the new monthly fees our other investment firm was going to begin charging us. In addition, we discovered that UBS provides our statement online by 2nd business day of the month vs our old investment firm taking 3-4 business days to get it to us.


03-2024 OCCU's ATMs
In March 2024, OCCU worked with SHAZAM to update all our ATMs surcharge fee to $5.00/transaction. Note, this is only a surcharge for those that choose not to do their banking with us. OCCU Members continue to enjoy Surcharge Free ATM Networks locally and around the country. (We haven’t updated this non-member surcharge fee since April 2022 as show on that page.)


02-23-2024 Citizen's Center ATM - New Feature
In February 2024, OCCU turned on a new feature at our Citizen’s Center Triton ARGO ATM where now at the end of your transaction you have a choice of a receipt or not. (Hopefully, this will prevent all the trash of discarded receipts on the ground.)

In January 2024, OCCU converted all of its computers over from Windows10 to Windows11. This was coordinated when our core/network services, CU*SOUTH, became ready for support of such. Thanks Ron & Alex for all your assistance with this conversion. This conversion went smoothly over 01-11-2024 & finishing touches 01-12-2024.



In January 2024, OCCU converted over to a new telephone/fax vendor as a cost saving measure using the same system (VOIP) our prior vendor used.

The switching over was seamless and we had a notification on top of our website informing our members of this up-coming conversion and provided our other service, 844.785.2171 CUTalk – English/Spanish, as a backup for our members.
