Lincoln USDA Merger

On Oct. 1, 2022, we welcomed Lincoln USDA Federal Credit Union (Lincoln USDA) members into our credit union family, after the merger was finalized. The Lincoln USDA branch closed and Lincoln USDA members will be able to do business at any of the FNCU branches starting Oct. 1.

The merger will not result in any lay-offs or the elimination of any positions.

We look forward to welcoming Lincoln USDA members, and helping them with their daily financial needs.

120th Street News

We have officially closed our 120th street branch, but don’t let that deter you from doing your banking in the area! The Interactive Teller Machine (ITM) gives you 24/7 access to your funds, and during business hours, you can speak with an FNCU teller, right there at the machine. They will help you the same as if you were in the drive-thru.

Plus, there are several Shared Branching locations in the 120th & I St. area to help serve you with your every-day banking transactions.

Congrats to our 120th Street ITM users in June-July

What our members are saying

“Audri was incredible in giving us all the options for a personal loan. This was such a seamless experience for us because of you and we are so grateful at how quick this process has been. This credit unions’ staff is so incredible, I’ve never had a negative interaction. It’s why I can’t let you guys go even though I’ve relocated to Tennessee. Thank you again!”
