UNFCU Banking services for expats
Breakthrough: Global Banking for Bright!Tax Clients

What are the benefits of banking with UNFCU?

Since its founding in 1947, the United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU) has dedicated itself to serving the financial needs of the UN community in over 200 countries. Headquartered in New York, UNFCU delivers a complete suite of competitive financial solutions tailored for the needs of a highly mobile, international community. UNFCU’s Broad Suite of Competitive Products and Services Includes :

  • Savings and checking accounts
  • Digital Banking (online and mobile)
  • Credit and debit cards
  • Personal loans
  • Numerous other competitive financial products and services

As a credit union, UNFCU offers members more unique benefits beyond its banking solutions, such as being driven by member service rather than profits, voting rights, learning tools, and a commitment to humanitarian causes across the globe. UNFCU accounts are federally insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Expats will also be happy to hear that UNFCU accounts do not qualify for or trigger FBAR filing.
