* Average Savings figure is a national average savings number from March 2016 to February 2017 of auto, homeowner, and packaged policyholders’ savings per customer when compared to the policyholders’ former premiums. Individual premiums and savings will vary. Insurance products are not insured by NCUA or any Federal Government Agency; are not a deposit of, or guaranteed by CFCU Community Credit Union or any affiliated entity; and may lose value. Any insurance required as a condition of the extension of credit by CFCU Community Credit Union need not be purchased from our Agency but may, without affecting the approval of the application for an extension of credit, be purchased from an agent or insurance company of the member’s choice.
