Federally insured credit unions, like Veritas Federal Credit Union, offer a safe place for credit union members to save money. All deposits at federally insured credit unions are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), with deposits insured up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor. Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union. Additional information on National Credit Union Association (NCUA) share insurance coverage for consumers is available at MyCreditUnion.gov.
A credit union, like ours, is a not-for-profit business, run by a volunteer board of directors on behalf of its members (not customers). When you deposit $25 into a share account of our credit union, you inherently become a member of Veritas Federal Credit Union. Our not-for-profit status means after expenses are paid and reserves are set aside, surplus earnings are returned to YOU in the form of higher dividends, lower loan rates, and free or low-cost services.
Credit unions are part of a worldwide support network that shares ideas, information, and resources. This network includes (among others) shared branches, state credit union leagues, and a national trade association (Credit Union National Asoociation or CUNA).
Veritas FCU belongs to a co-op of credit unions which gives our members special benefits. Shared branching allows members of one credit union in the co-op to perform a range of transactions at another credit union. If you’re traveling or move away from a VFCU branch, you can find another credit union in the co-op (a shared branch) nearby. Use their services just as if you were sitting in one of our local branches, at no charge to you.
Most likely, you’ve exceeded Regulation D, a Federal Reserve regulation that states you may not use your savings account as a transaction account. Savings accounts are limited to 6 electronic transfers per month. These transfers include: online banking or transfers on the app, ACH payments, and overdraft transfers to checking. Best practice is to be sure there are enough funds in your checking account to cover monthly expenses. If you have savings only, ask about opening a checking account.

If you’re looking to purchase a different vehicle, fill out an application to see how much you pre-qualify for. When you find the vehicle you want, let the dealer know you’re pre-approved and ask for a buyer’s order. Bring that buyer’s order to us and we’ll cut you a check for the amount of the purchase.
