Free Appointment for Members

  1. Must be a CAP COM member with an active Youth Account to participate in these programs. An active account is one where a deposit or transfer (other than a Great Grades or Reading Program deposit) has been made in the previous 12 months.

  2. ATM surcharges up to $5 and International Service Assessments incurred when using your CAP COM Debit Card will be reimbursed for CAP COM Premier Members within 24 hours of the transaction. The CAP COM Premier Program is a non-contractual courtesy and CAP COM retains the right to remove a participant from the program without prior notice. In addition, CAP COM retains the right to discontinue this program, without notice, at any time. Eligibility requirements must be maintained under a single account number in order to qualify. Your participation in the CAP COM Premier program will be assessed on a routine and ongoing basis to ensure your continued eligibility. If it is determined that you no longer meet the above requirements or your account does not remain in good standing, you will be notified as to the reason why and be provided with a period of time to meet program requirements. If you are unable to meet the program requirements within this time frame, you will be subject to all standard ATM fees until a reassessment of your account indicates that you once again meet the program parameters.
