Every savings account at Downriver Community Federal Credit Union is Federally Insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA). This share insurance fund, an independent agency of the federal government, also insures credit union IRAs up to $250,000.
DCFCU’s Prime Share account opens the door to membership at Downriver Community Federal Credit Union. You’ll establish your membership and enjoy a great return on your savings with rates that only a credit union can offer. A $5 deposit is all it takes to access the many benefits DCFCU has to offer. Dividends are paid quarterly, and cannot by law be guaranteed ahead of time, but must be declared by the Board of Directors based upon that quarter’s earnings.

Yes, but it would be determined on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. The first $225.00 of your deposits, however, may be available immediately. If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available immediately, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. Actions taken to put holds on checks are governed by our Funds Availability Policy which only applies to the availability of funds in “transaction accounts” subject to Regulation CC. Generally, transaction accounts are accounts that do not limit the number or types of withdrawals or transfers that may be made from the account such as your checking account. The credit union reserves the right to delay the availability of funds deposited to accounts not governed by Regulation CC for periods longer than those disclosed in this policy.
