Frequently Asked Questions

Are savings deposits insured?

Yes. On July 22, 2010, the $250,000 federal insurance protection became permanent. Properly established member accounts in federally insured credit unions are insured up to the Standard Maximum Share Insurance Amount (SMSIA). The basic insurance amount is $250,000 per individual account holder, per federally insured credit union. This includes principal and posted dividends up to a total of $250,000. Joint account holders are insured up to $250,000 per joint account holder, per federally insured credit union. For example, an account with two joint account holders is insured for $500,000 separately from the holders’ individual accounts. This includes principal and posted dividends. Individual retirement accounts (IRA) and KEOGH accounts are insured separate from other accounts and up to $250,000 per institution, including principal and posted dividends.

Can a Regular Savings account be closed if I still have other services (checking, visa, loans, etc) open?

No. The savings account is what makes you a member, a shareholder in the credit union. It must remain open for you to have other services with us and only requires a minimum balance of $5.

Can an automatic deduction come from either a savings or checking account?

Yes. To set up an automatic deduction you will need our routing number (222380731) and your member number when associated with your savings account, or the 14-digit MICR number associated with your checking account.
