Attention YSCU debit card holders: We are following an industry, world-wide, massive MasterCard debit card fraud that has included some YSCU card numbers. NO YSCU MEMBER PRIVATE INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXPOSED, only our publicly-known bin numbers. From those numbers, fraudsters utilize programs to predict valid numbers fitting to our bin, and attempt charges at various merchants. If you believe your card has been compromised, please contact us right away. We assure you we are doing all we can to protect you, and provisional credit is being posted to accounts, a no-cost gift card is available to you to load funds from your checking to use for purchases until your new debit card is received, and YSCU is doing everything possible to reduce additional fraudulent postings from not-yet-affected cards. This did not result from anything YSCU's product or staff failed to protect or do. Feel free to contact our Member Services Manager, Victoria, if you need further information. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
You have questions. We have answers. We have compiled the answers to the most common member questions we receive. Still looking for more info? CONTACT US
A bank is owned by shareholders and is tasked with maximizing the shareholders’ investments. A credit union is a not-for-profit organization owned by its members. It exists to offer excellent service and affordable financial products to its membership.
Policies and procedures are set and monitored by the YSCU volunteer board of directors. Each credit union member has one vote and an equal voice in the selection of its directors. The board of directors, elected for three-year staggered terms, sets policies under which the credit union management carries out its duties.
As a YSCU member, you have access to the full array of financial products and services that YSCU offers, as well as the YSCU Member Value Guarantee. This guarantee means that our members always receive the best local value on YSCU products and services, including the best local loan rates, the best checking account value and some of the best everyday savings and certificate rates in town—we guarantee it! Additionally, as partial owners of the credit union, members have the opportunity to vote for the YSCU board of directors. YSCU members receive the best in service and better rates on loans and deposits than traditional banks.
YSCU membership is open to all persons and their immediate family members who meet one or both of the following criteria:
Live, work, worship, or attend school in Greene County, Ohio

Funds on deposits at YSCU are federally insured by the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) up to $250,000 per account through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The fund was created by Congress in 1970 to insure members' deposits in federally insured credit unions. Administered by the NCUA, the Share Insurance Fund insures individual accounts up to $250,000, and a member’s interest in all joint accounts combined is insured up to $250,000. The Share Insurance Fund separately protects IRA and KEOGH retirement accounts up to $250,000. The Share Insurance Fund has the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States. Credit union members have never lost even a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union.

If you are a member of YS Federal Credit Union, you should contact us, and we will close affected accounts or place a notification on accounts that have not been directly affected.
