Congress Is Threatening America’s Credit Unions

The big banks of America and some members of Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on 96 million Credit Union members, members like you, who represent 40% of all Americans yet represent only 6% of the assets in financial institutions. And, they want to do this despite the fact that Credit Unions, like ActorsFCU, are not-for-profit. For any Credit Union, their core mission is to serve their members—in our case, the men, women, and children of the Entertainment Community.

This new threat is wrong and will imperil the Credit Union Movement, which so many have come to depend on for real financial choice. If the banks and Congress succeed, they will reduce our ability to keep our rates and fees low on services, like our credit cards and auto loans, and reduce our ability to offer free checking and savings rates that are at the top of the market.  The big banks are trying, yet again, to bully America’s Credit Unions.

As a member of ActorsFCU we hope you recognize the value ActorsFCU brings to your life and we ask that you click the link below to lend your voice to this cause.

Don’t let Congress raise taxes on 96 million Credit Union members.
Don’t let Congress eliminate real financial choice.
Don’t let Congress destroy your Credit Union.

Take action to defend and preserve ActorsFCU—YOUR Credit Union!

Why Is Political Action Important to Me as a Credit Union Member?

Our leaders at the city, state, and federal levels aren’t always aware of how a proposed law or piece of legislation may affect Credit Unions and their members.  With your participation we can ensure that our lawmakers are aware of our concerns and our preferences when they’re deciding which way to vote.

How Can I Get Involved?

Getting involved is easy.  All members of ActorsFCU are encouraged to check this page on a regular basis. Sometimes we will ask members to make a phone call or send an email to a member of Congress to make sure they are aware of the needs of Credit Union members.  In most cases your level of involvement will take no more than 2 to 3 minutes.  However, the benefits to you and the 92 million Credit Union members across the nation are enormous.

It’s About Credit Unions — Not Political Parties

Personal political views are pushed aside when it comes to meeting with our leaders.  Our concern is making sure that leaders on both sides of the aisle and in-between are aware of what policies are best for Credit Unions and their members.

We are not concerned with the political affiliation of those we contact.  We are concerned only with making sure that city, state, and federal legislators are aware of the needs of Credit Union members.
