How to Request an Alternative Format

Guideline or Raised-line Checks
Also available for the visually impaired are "guideline checks." These checks are printed with raised lines to help guide the customer when writing a check. Clients interested in these checks will be charged the price in effect for standard checks at the time of the order. There is no additional charge for the raised-line feature.

Talking ATMs
Talking ATMs that enable visually impaired customers to conduct transactions at the ATM by providing audio instructions privately through a headset are available at all Union Bank ATM locations. Audio instructions include how to withdraw cash, make deposits, make transfers to linked accounts, and obtain account balances. A headset is available for use by visually impaired customers free of charge at all banking offices or by calling Telephone Banking at 1-800-238-4486.

Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf
Telephone Banking is equipped with Telecommunications for the Deaf (TDD) services for hearing-impaired customers. The TDD can be reached by calling 1-800-826-7345.

Fees
Union Bank provides auxiliary aids and services for printed materials for customers and prospective consumer banking customers with vision impairments free of charge.
