Get Answers to Our Most Frequently Asked Questions.

Can I be sure that my deposits are safe?

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures MCU deposits, so you can trust that your funds are safe. The NCUA is an independent federal agency that insures deposits at federally insured credit unions, protects the members who own credit unions, and charters and regulates federal credit unions. Your savings are federally insured to at least $250,000 by the full faith and credit of the United States Government. Additionally, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) provides federal production to IRAs up to $1 million (some restrictions may apply depending on roll-over status and uniquely unqualified accounts).

Can I access my MCU account online?

Yes! We make it easy for you to have access and to monitor your funds, no matter if you visit an in-person branch.

Are my deposits insured?
