Security

As a member of Somerville’s Credit Union, the security of your personal and account information is of extreme importance to us. We have developed a thorough information security program to ensure that your information is kept confidential.

By practicing good security habits, you can assist us in the protection of your private information. To safeguard your personal information, please follow these guidelines:

Somerville’s Credit Union will never call you and ask for a PIN or a Password. If you call us, we may ask questions to verify your identity.

If you DO receive an unsolicited telephone call or email claiming to be from Somerville’s Credit Union, never disclose ANY personal identifying information, such as:

  • Somerville’s CU account numbers, Debit/ATM or credit card numbers.
  • Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) and passwords.
  • Social security number.
  • Mother’s maiden name.
  • Or other private information.

Never reveal your PIN to anyone, including Somerville’s Credit Union staff.

Change your PIN at one of our branch locations if you suspect it may have been compromised.

Store your card number and PIN separately, and never write your PIN on your card.

If you use Virtual Branch or Bill Pay, log out when finished and close your browser before leaving your computer.

Never leave your computer unattended during an Online Banking session.

Never use email to send your non-public information. Please always use our secure online form to communicate with us.

Beware of any email asking you to log into Online Banking if it does not link to the official Somerville’s Credit Union website. Use a saved link to the Somerville’s CU Online Banking login page wherever possible, instead of clicking on a link in an unsolicited email. Familiarize yourself with our online security features, especially your selected Personal Image, so you can be confident you are at our website and not at a fake site designed to look like ours.

Should you ever receive a call or email that you feel is a scam or illegitimate, please inform a Financial Services Representative at 617-625-0898.
