Below we have listed several announcements of important issues we'd like our members to be aware of, as well as other Credit Union news and events.Changes to Online Banking Procedures
As you may know by now our online banking login procedure has changed. It is a national credit union wide change. It has been changed for your security. Due to the malicious actions of "hackers" and "Identity thieves" access to accounts has become more stringent. The new process is simple: follow the prompts and make sure you keep a record of the answers that you are asked to provide. Keep your information somewhere safe and secure and do not share it with anyone.
Feel free to call us at the credit union with any questions or e-mail us at .
You may have heard of this "Act" in the news and have wondered just exactly what it is. I will try and give you a very brief overview of the subject. It is intended to perform the following:
"The Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act,1 also known as the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), and its implementing regulation, 31 CFR 103, is a tool the U.S. government uses to fight drug trafficking, money laundering, and other crimes. Congress enacted the BSA to prevent banks and other financial service providers from being used as intermediaries for, or to hide the transfer or deposit of money derived from, criminal activity."
An institution of our size, which is considered small by today's banking standards generally, does not have the same degree of concern in regarding money laundering or being used as a conduit for terrorist activity that the larger banking concerns have but we none-the-less must remain vigilant. So if you are asked for identification, even though you have been a member for a number of years, we are only adhering to the newer regulations that have been passed by congress. Please as always any questions feel free to contact us at the Credit Union.
