Take a Stand for Credit Unions

By joining Catholic Federal Credit Union, you made the smart choice to protect your financial future. Our not-for-profit financial cooperative—owned by members like you—is tax exempt because we keep the focus on our members. All "profits" generated go back to our members as higher savings rates, lower loan rates, and stronger capital reserves.

Learn About CULAC

Credit unions can stay strong by staying top-of-mind with lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

  • Elected officials hear from bank lobbyists all the time, but there is nothing more powerful than when they hear from their constituents directly.

  • It's easy to reach your legislators via email, social media, or phone.

  • Consider contacting your legislators regarding ways CFCU has helped you and your family or business.

 

CULAC - the Credit Union Legislative Action Committee - works to support political candidates that are friends to credit unions, our members, and our issues.

  • CULAC donations support Congressional and Senate candidates who are credit-union friendly, regardless of party affiliation.

By helping CULAC achieve its mission, you are joining with thousands of credit union members and employees nationwide to ensure that our movement has a voice on Capitol Hill when the big decisions are made.

     
Learn About the Campaign for Common Sense Regulation   Learn About Key Issues

Regulatory Burden subjects America's credit union members to:

  • Higher loan rates
  • Fewer services and products
  • Less access to modernized technology
 

Here is a brief overview of some key issues that CFCU is monitoring.

  • Data breaches and merchant accountability
  • The threat of credit union taxation
  • Longer wait times for mortgage loans
  • Increased inconvenience on services

Data Breaches

Did you know that merchants aren't subject to the same federal data protection standards as financial institutions like CFCU? Since they're not accountable, some merchants may fail to invest sufficiently in data security measures resulting in vulnerability to hackers who can gain access to credit card numbers, debit card PINs, or other sensitive data. Help us advocate for more common sense data protection laws.

  • In 2014 alone, over 500 data breaches occurred putting over 75 million data records at risk.

  • When a breach occurs, not only is CFCU prohibited from telling members where the breach occurred, but we are also liable for the fraud associated with the lost data and replacing those debit and credit cards.
  • Merchants need to be held accountable to the same strict data protection standards that we are as a financial institution.
