Update from our CEOAugust 10, 2017
You may notice our signs being updatedRead More
To All Members,
You may have noticed that we are changing our signs at all of our locations. We have officially changed our name from My Community Federal Credit Union to My Community Credit Union. We will have new state of the art digital signs placed at all of our locations over the next several weeks. All the new signs will reflect our new name, My Community Credit Union.
You will remember that the membership voted to move from a Federal Charter to a State Charter in the fall of 2016. I wanted to remind our members that while we are now a State Chartered Credit Union, nothing has changed. We are still Federally insured and we are still subject to Federal oversight. The primary benefit of changing charters is the flexibility in expanding our operation in the future.
We hope you are all enjoying our newest locations… our HEB Branch located at Loop 250 and Hwy 191, and our beautiful new Odessa Branch located off of Tanglewood and 42nd Street. My Community remains extremely strong financially and we are excited about the ability to continue to expand our products, services and locations.
As always, we appreciate your loyalty to My Community and your continued support.
Donna K. Neal
Recent Fraud WarningMay 1, 2017
Video Scam Targets Consumers and Routing NumbersRead More
Consumers are falling victim to a scam promoted via online videos claiming bills can be paid online using routing numbers belonging to a Federal Reserve Bank (FRB) or other financial institutions including credit unions. The scam suggests electronic payments will be generated through the ACH network using FRB accounts touted as “secret accounts” or “Social Security trust accounts” in exchange for personal information like Social Security Numbers. The scam appears to be another way for fraudsters to collect personal information from consumers, in which they can sell or use to commit fraud.
How the Scam Works
Using social media, such as YouTube, fraudsters promote the scam claiming consumers can pay bills online using secret accounts or Social Security trust accounts held at Federal Reserve Banks. Some online videos also refer to these accounts as Treasury Direct Accounts. Through an online payment service, consumers are instructed to use a Federal Reserve Bank’s routing number and the consumer’s Social Security Number as the account number in paying bills. These payments are being rejected and returned unpaid – often leading to service fees charged to the consumer by the merchant or vendor. In addition, these consumers become prime candidates for risks associated with identity theft.
Be careful not to provide your account information to any video, text, email, phone call or website that describes how to pay bills using a Federal Reserve Bank or another institution’s routing number or secret account.
MCCU Sets the Bar in FundraisingJune 1, 2015
My Community staff raises over $10,000 for the Cornerstone Foundation.Read More
Most people love wearing jeans, so it doesn't take much to inspire their participation in a good cause to do it. In that spirit, My Community Credit Union is sponsoring a fundraiser that gives its employees the opportunity to wear jeans every day for the entire summer.
For a monthly donation, any individual may wear jeans every day of the month (unless an outside event warrants professional business dress). The individuals donating will also be allowed to wear tennis shoes with their jeans. For an additional monthly donation, individuals will be allowed to wear flip-flops on Fridays.
The structure of the fundraiser ensures executives must donate a higher amount to ensure their contributions have a similar financial impact, and the credit union is also sponsoring a monthly contest to encourage healthy competition.
To make donations simple, My Community is offering a payroll deduction plan, and employees may elect to participate for one month or three—the full summer, which allows payments to be spread out over ten pay periods. This practice will make it easier for everyone to participate.
Employees and management are broken up into teams, and at the end of every month, the amounts are tabulated and a winner selected. Some of the rewards for participating in the fundraiser include various prizes. For instance, the first-place team in the monthly competition would be able to wear jeans for an additional two weeks beyond the end of the fundraiser. The second-place team would get breakfast cooked by the credit union executives, and the third-place team would win a pizza party.
The prizes will be based on overall total funds raised to potential total funds raised; but will not be awarded unless the credit union achieves the minimum goal of 80 percent participation rate.
Last year, the credit union had an 85 percent participation rate, surpassing their goal of 75 percent. They also raised over $10,000, while exhibiting tremendous spirit of competition and ultimately gave some pretty cool awards to the top three teams.
Where do all the funds go?
The majority of the funds raised during the fundraising period will go to the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, the non-profit organization dedicated to promoting financial education programs for youth and adults; providing access to professional development for credit union staff and volunteers; and offering financial relief for credit union staff and their families when disaster strikes.
Last year, My Community raised the most money of any single credit union in the tri-state Cornerstone region. My Community's CEO Donna Neal who is also a board member for the Foundation was thrilled to represent such a huge accomplishment in front of her fellow board members and to challenge them to meet or beat their efforts.
Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Courtney Moran said, “My Community conducted the single largest credit union fundraiser in 2014, period. There are credit unions that do contribute more than $10,000 via a direct contribution or through a dues drive, but not as a staff fundraiser."
Moran went on to say, "We had a chapter raise $20,000 in 2014, but that was a collective event as a chapter, not just one credit union. In other words, My Community rocks!”
