Frequently Asked Questions
Are credit union accounts insured by the FDIC?

The FDIC is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and it is an agency created by the United States government to provide deposit insurance to depositors in U.S. commercial banks and savings institutions. However, the credit union is insured by a similar institution known as the NCUA or the National Credit Union Administration, providing deposit insurance to depositors in all U.S. federal credit unions.

The NCUA manages the NCUIF or National Credit Union Insurance Fund which insures up to $250,000 per account title. The NCUIF insures up to $250,000 for single ownership accounts, up to $250,000 for your accounts with a beneficiary, etc. For more information on your coverage click here.

Where can I withdraw cash without an ATM fee?

There are thousands of locations where you can access your money surcharge-free. Get cash at any of our credit union ATMs or at thousands of Allpoint® ATM's nationwide.

Plus, if you have a Go Green Checking Account and meet the account requirements, we'll reimburse you up to $20 per month for any out-of-network ATM fees you may incur!

Can I make a cash deposit at an ATM?
Absolutely! You can make cash deposits at any of our ATM's located at your nearest branch using your Visa debit card with immediate availability. Third party ATM's located within our all point network or shared branch locations do not offer the ability for cash or check deposit.
Can I transfer money from my Special Purpose Savings to my savings or checking account?

Special Purpose Savings is a great way to save for a specific goal. You can tap into the funds in your Special Purpose Savings and transfer to your savings or checking account whenever you need to. If you would like to set up a yearly transfer on a specific date, you can do that too! Just complete the Special Account Payout Request Form and we will make sure your payout is in your designated account on the date you select.

Withdrawing/transferring from savings more than six (6) times in one month will result in an Excess Savings Transaction fee.

Is there any way to set up a transfer of funds from the credit union to another financial institution?

Yes. Simply log on to online banking and follow these three simple steps:

  • Navigate to Move Money from the menu
  • Choose External Transfer
  • Select Transfer Between My Accounts
A fee may apply depending on the transaction.

How do I become a member?

If you live, work or attend school in Nassau or Suffolk County you can become a member! Some exclusions apply. Simply apply online, or stop by a branch to complete your application.

Is it possible to make deposits into my account at other credit unions?

Yes. Unlike banks, credit unions share their branches with other credit unions to provide added convenience for all members. You can perform most teller transactions at more than 5,000 Shared Service Center locations nationwide.
