First Trust Credit Union is known in the community for its commitment to its members and putting their minds at ease for the big decisions in their lives. They are committed to serving members who live or work in local areas and seeing that their experience is as positive as possible. So, if you’re taking out a loan or simply taking care of your daily transactions, First Trust will be there to see you through the proccess from start to finish.
They are also federally insured up to $500,000, which means peace of mind for their members. They are federally insured by NCUA (National Credit Union Association) for up to $250,000 per member, AND First Trust provides an additional amount of up to $250,000 per member as well. First Trust also provides many of the same products and services associated with the big banks to ensure they are meeting the needs of their members. In this way, First Trust Credit Union provides the services its members need along with the "hometown feeling" that its members deserve and want, but may not be getting from many other financial institutions.
In addition, First Trust exemplifies the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People" by giving back to the communities in which they serve. The branch in Michigan City spent July and the first part of August collecting donations in conjunction with Life Care Center of Michigan City to support the Back to School Supply Rally for Michigan City Area Schools. Their La porte branch collected for and participated in the La Porte Jaycee’s Rock the Block event to support the students in the La Porte community. Their Valparaiso branch collected supply donations for Kindergarten Readiness & After School Programs for the clients of the Hilltop Neighborhood House. Finally, their Wheatfield branch was a collection site and participated in the Annual Back to School Fair that is held in Demotte, IN each year, where they gave out over 500 pencils and pencil sharpeners to children to start off the school year.
With drives like these stressing the importance of supplying the kids in First Trust’s own neighborhood, it’s easy to see why they have a reputation for serving their communities. First Trust is dedicated to its members both in matters of banking, and in serving the community as a whole to create a positive impact in the communities where they live and work.
Whether it’s in matters of finance, or helping parents get the vital supplies they need for their kids’ continuing education, First Trust Credit Union wants to take the stress out of its members' lives and help them relax and enjoy the summer!
