A better way to bank
At Solarity, we've been helping families, businesses and the community since 1939.
Solarity Credit Union has the same products and services you'll find at the big banks plus one very important thing they lack: employees who genuinely care about you as a person rather than a number.
Founded on the principle of people helping people, Solarity offers all the convenience you'd expect: multiple account options, free online and mobile banking, competitive rates and more. Open an account today to take advantage of everything membership has to offer.

Credit union deposits are federally insured, but not by the FDIC. Instead, they are insured by a separate government agency called the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The NCUA insures deposits at credit unions, while the FDIC insures deposits at banks. Both the NCUA and FDIC offer the same amount of insurance for depositors.
Credit union deposits are insured by the NCUA for up to $250,000 per depositor for each account type, which is similar to the FDIC, which insures deposits held at banks for the same amount. That said, there are ways to structure your credit union accounts to increase your NCUA insurance coverage above this amount. You can do this by opening multiple accounts with different types of ownership, such as a single, joint, trust, corporation/partnership and self-directed retirement account (IRA).
Each account type is insured separately, so having multiple accounts with different ownership types can increase the amount of coverage. For example, this chart created by the NCUA shows how a family of three could be insured for up to $2,500,000.
To make the switch from paper to electronic statements, follow these four steps.
- Log into online banking
- Locate Settings then click Additional Services
- Select eStatements
- Then choose to change your accounts to eStatements to avoid the $4 per month paper statement fee.
Please note: If you don’t have access to online banking, you will need to enroll in online banking before you sign up for eStatements.
