Credit Union Overview

Neighborhood Credit Union has an overall health grade of "A" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas ratio of 3.93% (excellent) based on December 31, 2016 data.

Established in 1930 as the Dallas Postal Credit Union, Neighborhood Credit Union is the oldest credit union in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. By 2001, the diverse and expanded FOM necessitated a rebrand, with the result being Neighborhood Credit Union. With more than 48,200 members and assets in excess of $596 million, Neighborhood Credit Union is currently the 39th largest credit union in Texas.

How the Kasasa Cash Compares

There are only three Reward Checking Accounts (RCA) available within the FOM that have maximum qualifying balances of at least $50k, which makes an accurate comparison a bit wonky. Therefore, when compared to the 65 High Yield RCAs tracked by DepositAccounts.com that are available within the FOM and have maximum qualifying balances of at least $25k, Neighborhood Credit Union’s Kasasa Cash APY currently ranks first.

The above rates are accurate as of 3/22/2017.
