Your Money is Safe at LES People’s

You and your family may be worried about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), but the leadership at LES People’s FCU want you to know that we are here to help you. Your deposits are safe and insured. We’re not going anywhere, because at its core, our credit union is not a building or a business, its people unified for a common goal.

Your money is safe and insured

There are a lot of things to worry about these days, but the safety of your money in your credit union isn’t one of them.  Your money is safe, and your accounts are fully insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) up to $250,000.  There is no risk to keeping money in your account, but there are countless risks to holding cash.

COVID-19 has cancelled, postponed, and slowed down much of American life, but the nation’s financial system operations are still strong. You can meet nearly all your financial needs without leaving your home. If you do not have it on your mobile phone, now is a good time to download our LES People’s mobile app at Apple or Android stores by searching LES PEOPLES FCU or enroll for Online Banking by visiting our website at  If you have not signed up for Online Banking and Mobile Banking yet, this is a crucial time to do so.
