  • I want to know if my money is safe. Are Acadia FCU member accounts federally insured?

    The short answer is YES. Here are few important things to know about how Maine credit unions are protected:

    • Federally insured credit unions offer a safe place for credit union members to save money. These deposits are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund and insured up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor – the same as any other federally insured financial institution.
    • Credit union deposits in federally insured credit unions are safe and secure, and all Maine credit unions are federally insured.
    • Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union.
    • All Maine credit unions are regularly examined by financial regulators to ensure proper management and maintain the safety and soundness of members’ money within the institution.

    Visit www.MyCreditUnion.gov for more information about the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund coverage for consumers. Download this informational brochure to help answer any other questions you may have.

  • What are the penalties for early withdrawals on my Acadia Share Certificate?

    The amount of the penalty is based on the term of your certificate account. For account terms 12 months or less, the penalty is equal to six months’ (180 days) dividends on the amount withdrawn whether earned or not. For account terms greater than 12 months, the penalty is equal to nine months’ (270 days) dividends on the amount withdrawn whether earned or not.

    Note: Both Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and share certificates are low-risk deposit accounts where your money can grow at a fixed rate. The main distinction between them is that CDs are products offered by for-profit banks, while share certificates are offered by member-owned, not-for-profit credit unions. Share certificates are federally insured by the NCUA while the FDIC insures CDs at banks.

  • Can teenagers open checking accounts and get their own debit cards?

    Yes, teens age 14 and older can open checking accounts and get a debit card, as long as there is a parent or guardian also on the account. The responsible adult will need to fill out a minor addendum stating that they are responsible for losses incurred on the minor’s savings and checking accounts. We love to see our younger members learning how to be responsible and are happy to help them, anytime!
