Safety and soundness are pillars that are important to First Imperial Credit Union.  In light of recent news regarding bank failures, we want to assure our membership that your funds are safe with us.  We are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration with deposits insured up to $250,000 per individual depositor. That means that First Imperial Credit Union is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.

FICU is a community-based, member-owned financial institution that places a focus on the financial well-being of our members.  Your financial security and peace of mind are our top priority—it is because of this that we do not leverage or engage in risky investments. Our primary business operations revolve around providing low or no-fee checking accounts, affordable consumer and real estate loans, and higher dividend earning deposit accounts.   

Your credit union is financially strong, well-capitalized, and conservatively managed for 81 years.  You can count on us to support you with all your financial needs now and into the future.  FICU’s financials are posted in every branch each month so member-owners can see the financial stability of the credit union.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us by visiting one of our branches, calling our Contact Center at 760-352-1540, option 0, or send us a secure chat via Online Banking.
