  • PATT is only accessible from a touch-tone phone or a dial phone with a touch-tone converter.
  • If you're unsure of your BACU member number, check your periodic statement or contact the credit union.
  • When keying in a dollar amount, the last two numbers will be treated as cents (i.e. 500# would appear $5.00)
