We’ve Got Your Back: A Message from the President & CEO

Mar 18, 2019

Brett MartinezA recent financial study revealed that money is the primary source of stress for 44 percent of Americans.* That means that nearly half of us are stressed about money on a regular basis. At RCU, we want to help you reduce that stress, so you can focus on enjoying what matters most to you. And there are a lot of ways we can help. That doesn’t just mean getting you a better rate on a loan or credit card, or helping you build savings. Sure, we do those things. But we can do a lot more if you let us.

Bringing your full banking relationship to us makes it easier for us to find solutions to help you live your best financial life. It means you can take care of all your financial needs in one place, in less time, with less stress. It also means we can do more for you when the unexpected happens.

We’ve got your back. And when bad things happen, we’re here for you. Whether it’s a widespread issue like a financial crisis or natural disaster, or a personal challenge affecting you or your family, we listen. And we can help.

For Members impacted by the government shutdown earlier this year, we covered their direct deposits so they’d have money in their accounts when they didn’t have a paycheck. After natural disasters such as fires or floods, we help Members in many ways—from letting them skip a loan payment, to increasing their credit line so they can quickly replace essential items. But we’re only able to offer this added level of support to Members when they already have their checking accounts, direct deposit, loans, and credit cards with us.

RCU is consistently rated as one of the top five healthiest credit unions in the nation, which means we are an extremely sound institution with strong financial performance. That means your money is safe with us. Plus, your savings are federally insured. So you can be confident that even when times get tough, we’ll be here.

If you find yourself worrying about money, talk to us. Let us help.

Best regards,

Brett Martinez
President & CEO
