Waterford, CT – March 17, 2023 – Charter Oak Federal Credit Union, a local credit union with headquarters located in Waterford, CT, assures members and potential members that their money is “safe, sound, secure, and protected.”
With the recent headlines in the news regarding Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, customers at banks and credit unions may have questions and concerns regarding the safety of their deposits.
Brian A. Orenstein, Charter Oak’s President and Chief Executive Officer, wants the community to be aware that Charter Oak is federally insured. Deposits are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund for up to $250,000 per individual depositor, and additional coverage is available for joint account holders and beneficiaries.
Trusted for over 84 years, Charter Oak Federal Credit Union is a well-capitalized financial institution, maintaining equity reserves and investments that prioritize needed safety and soundness for over 88,000 members. Charter Oak does not perform any cryptocurrency transactions, nor does it lend to any cryptocurrency companies.
“We take the security of your hard-earned money very seriously,” Orenstein said.
Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union, and our industry’s deposit insurance fund has the backing of the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. See MyCreditUnion.gov for more information.
“We will continue to make decisions based on our members’ best interests, that is our priority” Orenstein said.
