FAQs

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).

Are my savings insured?

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures MCU 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 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.

How are APY and dividend rates determined?

While many factors influence APY rates, the biggest contributing factor is the Federal Reserve (A.K.A. ‘the Fed’). When the Fed raises or lowers interest rates it affects the entire US financial ecosystem. APYs on products like student loans, credit cards, mortgages and savings accounts are also impacted by such rate changes.
