What Members Can Do To Help
The Delaware State Police Federal Credit Union is committed to the privacy of its members and customers. You can help by following these simple guidelines.
Protect your account numbers, card numbers, PIN (personal identification numbers) and passwords. Never keep your PIN with your debit or credit card which can provide free access to your accounts if your card is lost or stolen.
Use caution when disclosing your account numbers, social security numbers, etc. If someone calls you, explains the call is on behalf of the credit union and asks for your account number, you should beware. Official credit union staff will have access to your account number and will not need to ask for it.
Keep your information current. It is important that we have current information on hand for you. If we detect potentially fraudulent or unauthorized activity or use of an account, we attempt to contact you immediately. If your address or phone number changes, please let us know.
Let us know if you have questions. Please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-288-1080 — we are here to help you.
