What Is a Credit Union?
Credit Unions are full-service financial institutions offering all the loans, checking, savings, investment and money management products services you would find at a bank, but with one major difference. Credit Unions are member owned co-operative not-for-profit organizations, operating as a service to our members.
Unlike banks, Credit Unions have no outside investors or stockholders. Every member is an owner and benefits from the success of the credit union. The credit union’s income–after operating expenses–is returned to the membership in the form of above average dividends (interest) on savings and below average interest rates on loans. That’s the “Credit Union Difference!”
Rancho Federal Credit Union (RFCU) has been serving members and families since 1936 – meaning that we are celebrating our 83rd anniversary this year. Rancho Federal has strong ties to union workers, and a long tradition of dedicated service. Unlike profit-driven banks, Rancho Federal believes it is our obligation to promote financial literacy and help our members build wealth – as opposed to looking for ways to make money at every turn. Rancho Federal is financially sound, with over $80 million in total assets and cash reserves that exceed all federally mandated standards. We currently serve over 11,000 members and we invite you to join our credit union family.
Your Savings Are Federally-Insured
RFCU member deposits are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. Each of your individual deposit accounts is federally insured by the NCUA, up to $250,000. That includes savings, money market accounts, share certificates, checking accounts, and Individual Retirement Accounts. NCUA insurance is provided at no cost to our members. Individual Retirement Accounts are insured separately up to an additional $250,000 by the NCUA.
The NCUA also provides the peace of mind of knowing that not one dollar of NCUA protected money has ever been lost by a credit union member.
