Membership in the St. Thomas Employee Federal Credit Union is a fringe benefit offered by the university to all its employees and their immediate family members.

The credit union offers share (savings) accounts, a Christmas Club account, an AAUP dues account, other specialty accounts and various loans at competitive rates. Share accounts are insured up to $100,000 per account by the National Credit Union Administration, a U.S. government agency.

To make both saving and loan-paying as painless as possible, automatic payroll deduction is available to all UST employees. Employees may start, stop or change the amount of a deduction by completing a payroll deduction authorization form, available at the CU office.

Membership cards and information, payroll deduction forms and loan applications are available in a rack outside the CU office in Room 132, Christ Child Hall; this rack should be accessible at any time that the building is open. Or, request forms by calling (651) 962-6660.

Credit Union hours are from 3 to 6 p.m. Mondays and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

To join the Credit Union or to learn more about available services, stop in during CU office hours or call (651) 962-6660 anytime and leave a message. All calls will be handled on or before the next CU business day.

Mail can be sent to the CU at Mail # CHC 132, or can be dropped directly into the CU mailbox, which is located in the main hallway of Christ Child Hall, just to the left of the doorway leading into Suite 132.
