YOUR MONEY IS SAFE AT LINCONE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION
Your money is much safer in an insured credit union account than stashed away somewhere as cash due to coronavirus (COVID-19) fears.
You may question if your funds are safe at LincOne given the considerable unrest caused by the coronavirus. It is safe at your credit union and leaving it there avoids the extreme risks associated with holding large amounts of cash.
Your funds are insured up to maximum of $250,000 by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) which is backed by the full faith and credit of the U. S. government. No member has ever lost a penny of funds covered by this program. For more information, visit https://www.mycreditunion.gov/share-insurance.
National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) considers all credit unions with a capital ratio of 7% to be well capitalized; providing adequate reserves to meet emergencies. LincOne’s capital ratio varies slightly from month to month, hovering around 10%.
LincOne and the overall financial system continues to operate with some slight adjustments designed to limit social interaction and the transference of the virus, such as temporary lobby closings.
Holding large amounts of cash is risky. If lost or stolen, it can’t be replaced. Payment cards can be replaced so it’s safer to leave your cash in the credit union until it is needed.
You can carry on with your normal personal financial habits by:
Using the drive-thru lanes at all branches that remain open from 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday and 8:30am to 12noon on Saturdays.
Using free remote services such as ebranch, mobile app, Teledata 24, and billpay to access funds and account information.
Calling our office where staff remains available to provide service as usual from 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.
LincOne stands ready to assist members as their needs arise. We are just a click or a phone call away.
LincOne has been around since 1954, surviving many severe challenges. Nothing has changed. We are here to serve you today and will be here to serve you tomorrow. That’s our commitment!
Thank you for putting your trust in LincOne.
