General Questions

Who is eligible for credit union membership?
Anyone that lives, works, educates or worships in the counties of Riley, Geary and Pottawatomie are eligible for membership with our community charter. To determine if you are eligible to become a member of kstate CREDIT UNION, refer to Membership. All immediate family members are also eligible for membership.

Is my money safe?
Absolutely!! The share insurance at kstate CREDIT UNION is similar to deposit insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Share accounts in federally insured credit unions are insured up to $250,000, an amount equal to the insurance protection offered by the FDIC. Generally, if a credit union member has more than one account in the same insured credit union, those accounts are added together and are insured up to $250,000. There are exceptions, however. If a member has a regular share account and an Individual Retirement Account in the same credit union, each account is insured up to $250,000. The NCUA Insurance booklet gives a more detailed explanation of insurance coverage. Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union.

How is a share account different from a savings account?
A share account indicates your ownership in the credit union. It works just like a savings account in any other financial institution, but you have the comfort of knowing outside stockholders aren't benefiting from your hard earned money. In addition, we pay dividends into your account as opposed to interest, indicating again your ownership in the credit union. For more information on Share Accounts follow this link.
