Your Money is Safe & Sound!

Per Governor Wolf’s mandate last night, financial institutions ARE deemed life-sustaining businesses, therefore our drive-thrus remain OPEN during regular business hours. Rest assured, we are practicing social distancing, wearing gloves, and sanitizing our branches, which includes our drive-thru equipment. However, we also highly encourage the use of our electronic services to conduct business.

Despite the ever changing landscape, please know that your money is SAFE AND SOUND!  All deposits at federally insured credit unions are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, with deposits insured up to $250,000 per individual. Plus, First Capital takes it one step further by providing you with Excess Share Insurance (ESI), for FREE, which gives you an additional $250,000 in deposit insurance for a total of $500,000!  First Capital is one of only 12 institutions in the state that offer this coverage.  Additional information is available at MyCreditUnion.gov or www.excessshare.com.
