  • We’ve been in business and steadily growing since 1936.
  • We’re a not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperative. We focus on doing what’s in the best interest of our members and improving their financial well-being – not on generating profits for investors.
  • All deposit accounts are federally insured to at least $250,000 per account by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). We also receive a well-capitalized rating from the NCUA.
  • All share accounts are additionally insured to at least $250,000 per account by American Share Insurance, a private insurer.
  • Our operations and financial management practices are thoroughly audited by internal, third-party, and federal government examiners. Our policies ensure that we limit investment risk exposure.
  • Our Risk Management and Information Security teams are on constant guard, protecting your accounts, privacy, and personal information around the clock.
