Your money is safe and insured
There are a lot of things to worry about these days, but the safety of your money in your credit union isn’t one of them. Your money is safe, and your accounts are fully insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) up to $250,000. There is no risk to keeping money in your account, but there are countless risks to holding cash.
COVID-19 has cancelled, postponed, and slowed down much of American life, but the nation’s financial system operations are still strong. You can meet nearly all of your financial needs without leaving your home. If you do not have it on your mobile phone, now is a good time to download our app or sign up for online access visit at our website, www.1stms.com.

Protect yourself from cyber scams
It is important to note that if we reach out to you, we will NEVER ask for confidential information such as your name, password, personal identification number (PIN) or other account information. You can review the Federal Trade Commission's advice for consumers to protect yourself from scams.
Use caution and minimize social interaction
Health professionals say if you must leave your house use an abundance of caution and minimize social interactions. If you need to visit one of our branches, which are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 until 5:00, ATMs and drive-through lanes are a great option to access your cash.
