Our Loan Rates Come With No Strings Attached

Some financial institutions offer low rates but these rates often come with "strings" attached:  must have a checking account with direct deposit, must make a certain number of transactions each month, must pay through auto pay, must sign up for e-statements, must have our credit card, etc.

At the IBEW Local #56 FCU, once you are approved for a loan at a given rate, you aren't required to do any of the above.  "No Strings Attached".

Protect Your Social Security Number

As we celebrate the 80th anniversary of Social Security, here are a few tips to help protect your Social Security number.

  1. Leave Your Social Security Card At Home - Do not carry your card in your wallet unless you will be needing it for some reason.  Keep it at home in a safe, secure place.
  2. Shred Documents With Your Number - Shred all documents that contain your Social Security Number or other personal information.  Also, do not leave mail inside the mailbox for long preiods of time.  Doing so gives thieves opprotunities to steal personal documents.
  3. Don't Share - Never give your Social Security number over the phone if you didn't initiate the call, especially when you have no way of being sure who you're speaking with.  Likewise, beware of providing your number to anyone who asks for it by e-mail.  This is typically done by imposters.
  4. Ask Questions - Know who you are providing your number to and how they will use it.  You usually will need to provide your number to a financial institution or insurance company.  If you are not sure why a company needs it, don't be afraid to ask why they need it, how they will store it, and if they'll share it with others.

If you believe that your Social Security number may have been stolen, contact the Social Secuirty Administration for help.
