  • Q: Why did Rolla Federal Credit Union choose to become Riverways Federal Credit Union? +

    A: In July of 2013 RFCU rolled out many new products for the Membership in preparation for an upcoming field of Membership expansion (the area we are allowed to serve by the National Credit Union Association, our insuring body). That expansion was granted in October 2013 to include Maries, Crawford and Dent counties. In December 2013 RFCU purchased a building to open a new branch in Salem. Given the much larger area we now serve, we felt that Riverways Federal Credit Union would better reflect our total market area while still keeping the RFCU acronym that has served us so well for decades.
  • Q: Was there a change in ownership of RFCU/is someone else taking over? +

    A: No, RFCU is owned, operated and under control of you, the Membership. We have the same management and philosophies that has been so effective over the years which has led to this great opportunity. We are still your institution and that we are proud of and have no desire to change.
  • Q: What about my checks and debit cards? +

    A: Since the only thing changing is our name, your current checks and debit cards will work just like always. When it is time for new ones, they will come with our new logo.
  • Q: What all has changed? +

    A: Simple-just our name … that’s it!
  • Q: What else is going to change? +

    A: We are committed to provide all the products and services that our Membership needs in the most convenient forms possible. Our products and services will continue to improve with the industry to serve all segments of society. While the services may evolve the philosophy of “People Helping People,” which is what the credit union is built upon, will remain. Rest assured there are no mergers forthcoming, our focus is on serving you, our owner/Members in the best manner possible.
