President's Message: Fall 2016Comment October 20, 2016 by Maurice D. Simard, Jr., President/CEO
Triangle Credit Union is growing again. It is my pleasure to announce that St. Joseph Hospital Employees’ Credit Union is now part of Triangle Credit Union. We believe this move is mutually beneficial for both credit unions and our members. The hospital branch will remain in its current location, at 172 Kinsley Street, for the convenience of St. Joseph Hospital employees. On behalf of Triangle Credit Union, I welcome each new member to Triangle and look forward to serving the financial needs of our new membership.
I am also excited to inform our members that Triangle is offering very competitive deposit rates this fall, including two CD Specials: 1.00% APY for 6 months and 1.25% APY for 18 months. If high interest and liquidity are important factors to your savings strategy, I encourage members to consider Triangle’s Premier Money Market at .90% APY (on deposits of $100,000 or more) and .80% APY (on deposits of $25,000-$99,999) and Online Savings at .65% APY! Members who open a new CD, Premier Money Market or Online Savings account are eligible to receive a Save & Scratch ticket. Every ticket is a winner and prizes include up to $2,500 in gift cards, promotional items and additional saving offerings on future deposits. For rules, please see trianglecu.org.
Lastly, safety and security are paramount to Triangle Credit Union. As such, we have enhanced our debit cards with a built-in EMV security chip. This chip provides additional security measures against fraudulent transactions. Information was sent in September to current debit card holders. For additional information on the enhanced debit card features, I encourage you to read the TCU University: Pay with Confidence article in this edition.
As always, I wish you a most colorful New England autumn season.
