Benefits of Membership
Transportation FCU, like all Credit Unions, is a financial cooperative owned and operated by its members. Credit Union membership makes you an owner of our Credit Union. The only stockholders at a credit union are the members themselves!
Top Reasons to Join TFCU
At TFCU, we pride ourselves on being a source for financial information. By providing seminars, online tutorials, resources and information on a range of topics from preventing identity theft and managing credit cards to buying a home and paying for college, we want to prepare our members to make informed financial decisions.
Better Rates on Savings and Loans
On average, credit unions offer lower rates on loans and higher rates on savings accounts according to a U.S. News & World Report. We offer a variety of products and services to help members navigate through all their life events.
Access your money when and where you need it – online, in person at a local TFCU branch, by phone, or nationwide. We belong to the CO-OP Network, a network of 28,000 ATMs nationwide, which gives you access to surcharge-free ATMs. Additionally, you can access your money at shared branch locations.
Safety and Soundness
Whether it’s early retirement, college education, or achieving a lifelong dream – nothing is more important than reaching your destination safely. TFCU is committed to protecting our members which is why we provide the highest level of combined federal/private share savings insurance available anywhere. Savings are federally insured up to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.
An additional $250,000 of coverage is provided by Excess Share Insurance (ESI), a private corporation. Traditional and Roth IRAs are separately insured up to $250,000 by NCUA and up to an additional $250,000 through ESI, all at no cost to our members.
