USA Patriot Act

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

 
What this means for you

When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

WHY A CREDIT UNION?

Because – It’s All About You You Are an Owner with Fringe Benefits

Every Foothills Credit Union member is an owner. While most financial institutions operate to make a profit for their stockholders & board of directors your Credit Union operates for the sole benefit of its members. Credit unions are not-for-profit member owned cooperatives so there are no stockholders and the board or directors are all members and volunteers who do not make any money from the credit union.

 

You Benefit From Surplus Funds

Foothills returns surplus funds to the membership in the form of better rates, services, dividend payments, and lower or no fees. The more you participate, the more you benefit.

 

You Matter, Regardless of Account Size

All Members are eligible to vote for the governing body, regardless of account size. The Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee are comprised of members who are elected by the membership-at-large.

 

You Have a Voice

The Governing bodies offer direction and set policies to ensure the member’s best interests are met. Since you, as a member owner, are eligible to vote in these elections, you have a say in who’s making the policies that impact you. Your vote and voice counts.

 

You Can Count on Us – Today & Tomorrow

While many local banks are merging into mega banks with out-of-state management and owners, your Credit Union remains locally owned and managed. Foothills Credit Union is owned by its members and cannot be bought or sold. We have been a fixed member of the community for over 65 years, serving your financial needs today and tomorrow.

 

You Can Rest Easy

The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) insures all accounts up to $250,000. NCUSIF is proportionately considered the strongest federal insurance fund of all the federal deposit insurers. Foothills Credit Union also operates under the supervision of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a U.S. Government agency.
