We take our members’ security very seriously and have daily procedures to verify your identity and personal information currently in place.

Neighborhood CU does report to all 3 credit bureaus, including Equifax, so your information could be at risk. In addition to checking with Equifax, there are other steps you can take to help protect your information.

  • Order your free annual credit report and review it for fraudulent activity.
  • If you see any unauthorized activity on your credit report, debit or credit cards, report it to us or your credit card company immediately.
  • Place fraud alerts on your credit reports.

To further secure your Neighborhood CU account, you can setup free account activity alerts in Online Banking that will help quickly alert you to possible fraudulent activity on your account.

Our Choice Checking account also has the included benefit of real-time identity protection services including monitoring, identity restoration and wallet replacement services. Learn more here.
