Due to an increase in debit and credit card fraud and in an effort to protect your account, PHCU may place additional limits and/or blocks on some foreign transactions. Please notify us if you plan to travel out of the country, so we can make sure that you have access to your account while you are away. Please note that transactions using your PIN should work even when a block is in place.

Our current available daily limits for transactions are:

  • Signature or PIN based transactions: $3000 per day
  • ATM transactions: $700 per day
