FAQs

No. To ensure the security of the external accounts, your Popmoney payees were not automatically transferred.
Pay a Person is a new service connected to our Pay a Bill system and can be used to transfer money to individuals who are not members of Purdue Federal Credit Union.

Pay a Member is our member-to-member payment system, which provides free, secure and immediate transfers between Purdue Federal accounts. If you’re transferring funds to another member, we recommend Pay a Member for convenience. 
When using Pay a Person, you will set up a security question and answer for your recipient to answer the first time you perform a transaction together. That means you’ll need to share the answer with you recipient separately so they can receive their deposit.

Please note: The answer to the security question is space sensitive. That means if you write “PurdueFederal” without spaces and the recipient writes “Purdue Federal” with spaces, the security question would be invalid. Your recipient has a limited number of attempts before the transaction is cancelled, so communicate the exact answer. 
Because the new Pay a Person system uses a slightly different model than PopMoney, your funds will leave your account sooner than they did with the previous system. With Pay a Person, you will find your payments are deducted from your account on the "send date" of the payment, one business day before the selected delivery date. 
This is best done in Pay a Bill, not Pay a Person. In Pay a Bill, select the option to manually add a biller. Then check "I don't have an account number." Enter the necessary contact information for your biller. Then, you will be able to schedule check payments to that biller.
