Answers to many frequently asked questions regarding your accounts.
Yes! The National Credit Union Association (the strongest of the federal insurance funds) insures your funds with Diamond Credit Union up to $250,000.
Banks have shareholders who receive portions of what a financial institution makes from its customers in the form of fees and interest paid. Credit Unions are not-for-profit and are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are elected by credit union membership. We are members helping members. Every dollar a Credit Union makes above the cost of operations is returned to the members in lower loan rates, higher interest rates and lower fees.
Since the existence of Diamond Credit Union, we were considered a Select Employer Group Credit Union, meaning that, only the employees and family members of businesses that associated with Diamond were eligible to join. With a Community Charter, these restrictions no longer apply. Now, any person who lives, works, worships, regularly conducts business or attends school in Berks County and the Tri-County Region is eligible to join Diamond regardless of their place of employment.
