Safe & Secure

Your money is safe and secure with FSCU

Strong regulation protects your deposits

Australia has one of the strongest banking systems in the world.  You can have confidence that all Australian banking institutions must meet the toughest regulatory standards, designed to protect you, our members.

Fire Service Credit Union meets the same standards as all Australian banks, building societies and credit unions, and is licensed and supervised by the Australia Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).   We are regularly audited to ensure that the safety and security of your deposits meets the high standards and strict regulatory controls of APRA.

Government guarantee

As a Fire Service Credit Union member, you are protected under the Australian Government’s Financial Claims Scheme, meaning your deposits are guaranteed to be repaid up to a limit of $250,000 for each account holder in the unlikely event that Fire Service Credit Union faces stress.

Member owned

Additionally, Fire Service Credit Union is a member owned financial institution, meaning it is not a public listed business on the Australian Stock Exchange and therefore not subjected to any fluctuations in stock prices.
