Credit Union 24, MoneyPass Announce Reciprocal Alliance.

IRVING, Texas -- Credit Union 24, Inc., of Tallahassee, Florida, providing ATM & POS network services to more than 410 credit unions in 23 states, and Genpass, Inc., manager of the MoneyPass surcharge-free EFT network and the second-largest ATM driver in the U.S., jointly announced today an alliance wherein participants in CU24's CU HERE surcharge-free program and MoneyPass participants will be able to obtain surcharge-free ATM withdrawals at each other's ATMs. This alliance allows surcharge-free ATM access for CU HERE's 5.5 million cardholders at more than 11,000 ATMs nationwide. The alliance not only adds 2,800 ATMs to those ATMs that MoneyPass cardholders may access surcharge-free, but brings the total number of cardholders that can obtain MoneyPass & CU HERE surcharge-free ATM transactions to more than 12 million.

As part of the alliance, Genpass' MoneyMaker and Money Belt financial institutions will be able to offer their customers access to CU24's Member Access Atlantic ATM/POS Network. CU24's Member Access Atlantic (MAA) is a coast-to-coast, cooperative EFT network open to regional networks, credit union leagues and service organizations nationwide. With Genpass' nationwide ATM coverage, Member Access Atlantic offers cardholders access to tens of thousands of ATMs, plus hundreds of thousands of POS locations throughout the country.

"Credit Union 24 carefully considered our options in selecting a partner," said Jim Park, president and CEO of CU24. "We selected Genpass because they understand the credit union community and the needs of our members. What's more, we're excited about the millions of dollars we will be able to save our members' cardholders in surcharge fees every year," stated Park.

"Credit Union 24 holds the same values as we do as an organization," stated Douglas D. Anderson, president of MoneyPass, "We both continually seek ways to add value for our members and customers." Anderson continued, "We believe that this alliance once again proves the universal value that Genpass and the MoneyPass surcharge-free network brings to credit unions."
