Safety and Security

March 21, 2023

Like you, we are all keeping our eyes on news updates regarding Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank – the second and third-largest bank failures in our nation’s history. It likely has you asking questions about how something like this could affect your money. AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union has provided a safe and sound place for your hard-earned dollars since our founding in 1970. During this time, we have served the needs of our more than 15,000 members and our local communities by safeguarding your money, managing risk, and making thoughtful decisions to our diversified portfolio.

Your deposits are safe with AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union, and are insured up to $250,000 per share owner for each account ownership category you have with the credit union. The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which has been a safeguard for members through 8 different recessions since 1970. Your deposit share accounts are insured by the federal government through the NCUSIF, which insures all federal credit unions and the vast majority of state-chartered credit unions.

Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union. In addition, you can have confidence that as a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our first priority is our members’ financial success and security.

As always, our team is here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. You may also visit MyCreditUnion.gov for more information about the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund coverage for consumers.

Fraud Alerts

Watch Out for Fake Calls and Texts from Financial Institutions

December 23, 2019

Please be aware of a new scam targeting financial institution members and customers from multiple institutions. Fraudsters pose as bank representatives in an attempt to access your accounts in a variety of ways. What does this scam look like?

  • A fraudster calls or texts you and pretends to be a representative from your financial institution. They might sound like your financial institution. Calls, texts, and emails can be easily “spoofed” or faked, so it is important to be diligent in reviewing emails and do not always trust caller ID.
  • The fraudster then attempts to verify a transaction you did not make to gain your trust. They offer to order you a new card.
  • You are then asked to provide personal or sensitive information, such as your user ID, full or partial Social Security number, PIN, full or partial card number, or account number.
  • Once a fraudster has this information, they will log into your account, transfer funds, and use counterfeit cards to withdraw funds at the ATM or make purchases.

AmeriChoice will never contact you to ask for any of the following information:

  • AmeriChoice account number
  • Social Security number (full or partial)
  • Account PIN
  • User ID
  • Mobile/online banking password
  • Credit/debit card CVV number
  • Credit/debit card PIN

What to do if you are contacted: If you receive a call, email, or other communication from someone claiming to represent a financial institution (including AmeriChoice) asking for the information listed above, please do not engage. Hang up and call your financial institution using published phone numbers on their website to speak with a representative. How can you protect yourself?

  • Always call your financial institution directly to verify account status or transactions. If you receive a call, text, or email from a party claiming to be your financial institution, do not provide any account information.
  • Think before you act. Be wary of communications that play on fear (frozen bank account or fraudulent transactions), request urgent action (act immediately), request personal information (PIN, SSN, account numbers, etc.), or offer deals that sound too good to be true. If you’re ever unsure, hang up and contact your financial institution.
  • Never share any password, or PIN, even if they are temporary or one-time codes. Financial institutions do not need to ask for your password.

Set up account alerts to notify you of activity on your account. AmeriChoice offers multiple free account alerts through online banking as well as free VISA purchase alerts.
