FAQs



What’s so special about credit unions?

Unlike other financial institutions, Credit Unions are owned and run by its members. Members make up the Board of Directors, who manage and elect the officers to handle the business and operation of the Credit Union. Members make up the Supervisory Committee which makes sure the Credit Union is run correctly.

Are you getting the idea that it’s the members who make the Credit Union special? That’s absolutely right! Our members are joined together by a common bond and we will serve only our members. There are no outside stockholders – all net earnings after expenses are paid out to our members in dividends. That means your savings grow faster.

Is my money safe?

Absolutely!! Federal Credit Unions are chartered under the terms of the Federal Credit Union Act and supervised by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Each member’s savings are insured to the full legal limit by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).

Can the credit union take care of all my needs?
