The next phase in our merger with Self-Help Credit Union (merger date: Dec 2019) is the long-awaited conversion to Self-Help CU’s products and services. The conversion will begin in late April, and conclude on Monday, May 3. Once this conversion is done, all Turbine CU members and accounts will be on the Self-Help Credit Union system. This will enable all Turbine CU members to have access to Self-Help CU products and services and the ability to conduct credit union business at any branch of Self-Help CU in South Carolina, North Carolina and Florida, including our soon-to-open new branch at 1620 Woodruff Road in Greenville, and the branch at 115 W. Antrim Drive, also in Greenville.

Between now and mid-April, Turbine CU members will be sent a series of three mailings containing detailed information pertaining to this conversion. We expect you to receive the first mailing on or around Monday, March 15. The next mailing should arrive in early April. And the last mailing will arrive in mid-April. As well, we are posting on this website the essential contents of each mailing over the course of the next six weeks.

How are credit union savings deposits insured?

Savings held in a credit union savings account is insured up to $250,000, with additional coverage for retirement savings, by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund administered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the U.S. federal government.

How did credit unions start?

The first credit union cooperatives started in Germany over a 120 years ago. Today, credit unions are found in over 80 countries. The credit union movement began in 1909 in Manchester, New Hampshire as St. Mary’s Cooperative Credit Association, a church-affiliated credit union. Today, there are over 100 million credit union members in the United States.

What is the purpose of a credit union?

The primary purpose of credit unions is provide a not-for-profit financial alternative to help provide access to low-cost or no-cost financial services. Generally, credit unions offer lower loan rates and higher savings yields while helping people to improve their lives by eliminating the need to use fringe providers such as title loan companies, buy-here, pay-here stores and others that charge extremely high interest rates and fees. Rather than paying profits to stockholders, credit unions return earnings to members in the form of dividends, low-cost loans and improved services.
