Frequently Asked Questions

How Are We Different From A Bank?

Atlantic City Electric Company Employees Federal Credit Union is a unique, not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution. We are chartered by the federal government and regulated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Member deposits are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).

Unlike banks that are driven to provide a profit for shareholders, your credit union returns excess earnings to our members. We do this by providing friendly and personal service, lower interest rates for loans, higher yields on savings, and by adding new financial products and services.
