HEMA Federal Credit Union is a cooperative financial institution chartered by the federal government and owned by its members. With assets surpassing $10 million we provide a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates. We’re proud of our long tradition of providing financial solutions to our members, including those who have fewer choices.
HEMA Federal Credit Union is chartered, supervised and insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. The share insurance provide by NCUA is similar to the deposit insurance protection offered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Members’ deposits in federal credit unions are insured to at least $250,000.00 by NCUA and are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. Additionally, not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union.
