Here at American Heritage, we offer two types of cards that can be used to access your account information; an ATM Card and an Independence Check Card. Both cards can be used to access your savings and checking shares. However, the Independence Check Card has a bonus feature because it has a MasterCard emblem that can be used to do signature base transactions. Those transactions will be submitted by the merchant as a credit transaction, but will still come from your checking share after a small hold is placed on your funds (similar to all credit card transactions).
How can I obtain my pin number for my ATM or Check Card if its misplaced or forgotten?
Unfortunately, we do not keep a record of your pin number (access code). Once your card is created, that number is encoded on the back stripe of your card and destroyed. However, we have selective branches that can re-pin certain cards for you. Please refer to re-pinning and Instant Card Issue locations. If your card cannot be repined, you will need to request a replacement card at a branch, or by calling the Call Center at 1-800-342-0008.

What is the difference between the Available Balance and the Balance on my account?
The balance is what you actually have in the account and the available is what you have access to use on your account. Often if a check is placed on hold or a transaction is done using a debit card, the full amount will not be available in the account. It will show as the balance but not be available. We recommend checking your account balance and available balance prior to completing transactions.

We offer Primary Savings, 3 Types of Checking Shares, Holiday Shares, Vacation Shares, 2 Types of Money Market Shares and a Little Patriot Share (children under 2yr of age).
