If you don't know the person, or aren't sure you will get what you paid for (for example, items bought from an online bidding or sales site), you should not use Zelle® for these types of transactions.
These transactions are potentially high risk (just like sending cash to a person you don't know is high risk). Neither NGFCU nor Zelle® offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle® — for example, if you do not receive the item you paid for or the item is not as described or as you expected.
Zelle® is a fast, safe and easy way to send money directly between almost any financial institution accounts in the U.S., typically within minutes1. With just an email address or U.S. mobile phone number, you can send money to people you trust, regardless of where they bank2.
You can send money to friends, family and others you trust2.
Since money is sent directly from your account to another person's account within minutes1, it's important to only send money to people you trust, and always ensure you've used the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.

It's easy – Zelle® is already available in your NGFCU mobile banking app! Check your app and follow a few simple steps to enroll with Zelle® today.
When you enroll with Zelle® through your banking app, your name, your financial institution's name, and the email address or U.S. mobile number you enrolled is shared with Zelle® (no sensitive account details are shared -- those stay with your bank or credit union). When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile phone number, Zelle® looks up the email address or mobile number in its "directory" and notifies your financial institution of the incoming payment. Your bank or credit union then directs the payment into your account, all while keeping your sensitive account details private.
In order to use Zelle®, the sender and recipient's financial institution accounts must be based in the U.S.
Keeping your money and information safe is a top priority. When you use Zelle® within your NGFCU mobile banking app, your information is protected with the same technology we use to keep your NGFCU account safe.
Your email address or U.S. mobile phone number may already be enrolled with Zelle® at another bank or credit union.
If you would like to move your email address or U.S. mobile phone number from the financial institution where you initially enrolled with Zelle®, simply click "Transfer" when prompted during the Zelle® enrollment process and confirm your desired changes.
Once you transfer your email address or U.S. mobile phone number, it will be connected to your account at the financial institution you selected and you can start sending and receiving money with Zelle® right away.
Some small businesses are able to receive payments with Zelle®. Ask your favorite small business if they accept payments with Zelle®. If they do, you can pay them directly from your NGFCU mobile banking app using just their email address or U.S. mobile number.
Neither NGFCU, nor Zelle®, offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle®, so you should only send money to people (and small businesses) you trust. Also, always ensure you've used the correct email address or U.S. mobile number when sending money.
If your recipient isn't enrolled with Zelle®, they'll get an email or text notification letting them know that money is waiting for them. They'll be prompted to enroll to receive the money you sent.
If your recipient doesn't enroll, they won't receive the money. The payment will expire in 14 days and the money will go back into your account.
You can find a full list of participating banks and credit unions live with Zelle® here.
If your recipient's bank or credit union isn't on the list, don't worry! The list of participating financial institutions is always growing, and your recipient can still use Zelle® by downloading the Zelle® app for Android and iOS.
To enroll with the Zelle® app, your recipient will enter their basic contact information, an email address and U.S. mobile number, and a Visa® or Mastercard® debit card with a U.S. based account (does not include U.S. territories). Zelle® does not accept debit cards associated with international deposit accounts or any credit cards.
You can only cancel a payment if the person you sent money to hasn't yet enrolled with Zelle®. To check whether the payment is still pending because the recipient hasn't yet enrolled, you can go to your activity page, choose the payment you want to cancel, and then select "Cancel This Payment."
If the person you sent money to has already enrolled with Zelle®, the money is sent directly to their financial institution account and cannot be canceled. This is why it's important to only send money to people you trust, and always ensure you've used the correct email address or U.S. mobile number when sending money.
If you sent money to the wrong person, we recommend contacting the recipient and requesting the money back. If you aren't able to get your money back, call our member support team at 800-633-2848 team so we can help you.

Yes. If you’re an existing Zelle® user and you want to continue receiving and sending money at your other bank or credit union, you should use a different email address to enroll with Zelle® at NGFCU. For instance, if you already use Zelle® at another institution using your US mobile number, you could enroll with Zelle® at NGFCU using your email address. If you only want to use Zelle® with NGFCU, and you’re already enrolled with Zelle® at another bank, when you enroll with Zelle® at NGFCU, you will have the option to transfer your existing email from that bank.
1 Transactions typically occur in minutes when the recipient's email address or U.S. mobile number is already enrolled with Zelle®.
2 Must have a bank or credit union account in the U.S. to use Zelle®.
3 In order to send payment requests or split payment requests to a U.S. mobile number, the mobile number must already be enrolled with Zelle®.
