A Letter from Raymond J. Currier

Dear Members,

Over the last five days the media has reported that two large U.S. Banks have been seized by regulators.  Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank are both ranked among the top 30 banks in the U.S. by asset size.  We recognize that headlines concerning these bank failures are troublesome and that you may have questions regarding the safety of your deposits at CorePlus Federal Credit Union. 

SVB and Signature Bank were niche banks that dealt almost exclusively with large business depositors that kept large balances well above FDIC insurance limits.  SVB had 3% of its deposits covered by the FDIC while Signature had 6% covered.  CorePlus is very different than these banks; 96% of our deposits are insured by the NCUA.   CorePlus is financially strong.  We are considered well capitalized by the NCUA and manage our balance sheet to ensure sufficient liquidity.  In addition, CorePlus posts strong earnings quarter after quarter and maintains a healthy loan portfolio with low delinquency.

Understanding share insurance is important.  Deposits are insured up to $250,000 per depositor by the NCUA.  Members with more than $250,000 on deposit can be covered for much larger amounts of insurance if their accounts are titled properly.  If you would like to discuss how to qualify for greater insurance limits, please call us at 860-886-0576 or stop by any branch office.  You can also log into www.mycreditunion.gov and use the share insurance estimator to determine your insured level based on your balance and account structures.

If you would like to discuss your concerns with a member of our management team, please call us at 860-886-0576 and we will direct you to the proper person.

Raymond J. Currier

Are My Accounts Insured?

When you choose to bank with CorePlus, your deposits are safe. The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund insures member funds up to $250,000 per individual depositor in federally insured credit unions, like CorePlus Credit Union.

To learn more about how your funds are protected, view the video below:

“Federally insured credit unions offer a safe place for you to save your money, with deposits insured up to $250,000 per individual depositor. The National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund Insures member savings in federally insured credit unions, which account for about 98 percent of all credit unions in the United States. Deposits at all federal credit unions and the vast majority of state-chartered credit unions are covered by National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund protection, and not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union.”

Learn More About Becoming a Habitat Homeowner

Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut is now accepting applications for homes in Gales Ferry and Norwich only, between March 1-31, 2023.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help families build a place to call home. They believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.

Learn more about Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut by visiting www.habitatect.org and be sure to click the button below to view Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut’s March Program Flyer!

Here's what you should know prior to applying:

Prior to submitting a homeownership application please ensure that you are in Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut’s service area, which includes all of New London and Windham counties, and six southeast towns in Tolland County. Applicants are required to live in Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut’s service area. Visit www.habitatect.org/homeownership/service-area for a complete list of towns in the service area.

  1. Go to www.habitatect.org/homeownership to learn more about the program and eligibility requirements.

  2. Starting on March 1, 2023 you can click on the “Application” button on the website and begin the Applicant Information Meeting (AIM). After you watch the video and complete the survey, you can download a pre-qualification application.

  3. The deadline to attend the AIM and submit your completed application is the end of the day on March 31, 2023.

    Available homes are located in Gales Ferry and Norwich.

As active participants in the building process, eligible Habitat homebuyers are:

  1. In need of better housing.

    Potential homebuyers might be dealing with poorly made, unhealthy or inadequate housing; unaffordable rent; homes inaccessible for their disabilities or damaged by natural disasters; or have other shelter needs.

  2. Willing to partner with Habitat.

    Habitat homebuyers put in hundreds of hours of “sweat equity,” which means they help build their own home and the homes of others in the Habitat for Humanity house building program, or volunteer at a Habitat ReStore. These prerequisite hours may also include classes in personal finances, home maintenance and other relevant topics to help ensure capability for the demands of owning a home.

  3. Able to pay an affordable mortgage.

    The income requirements are based on HUD’s annual income levels and determine the applicant’s ability to afford a monthly mortgage payment and other costs associated with homeownership. Habitat and/or the USDA offers homebuyers an affordable mortgage. Those payments are then cycled back into the community to help build more affordable homes.

Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut has pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunities throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin


In order to process your application, you must answer the question below. Questions answered dishonestly will result in your application being denied.
