How to Join

Apply Online or stop by our branch to set up your account. You will need $25.00 to put in a share/savings account. You will also need to present Identification and have your Social Security Number. If you want a joint owner on the account, we will need the same information for them.

How are my Accounts Insured?

Credit union deposits are federally insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The NCUA coverage for credit unions is the same as the FDIC coverage for banks. Both funds are backed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. government. This is the backbone of banking safety for consumers and it applies to your DFDFCU savings, checking, money market, certificates, trusts or retirement accounts.
