Monthly Blogs

  • Be Sure to Use the Right Account Number When Setting Up Direct Deposit: It’s common for Delta Community members to link their Credit Union accounts, such as a Savings Account, to a Checking Account, or to link their Credit Union accounts to other financial institutions or to the U.S. government, such as linking an account with the federal Internal Revenue Service for paying taxes or receiving tax refunds. If you are linking accounts, be certain you are always using your correct Delta Community Credit Union account information/number.
  • How to Have a Winning School or Extracurricular Sports Budget: Sports are a wonderful activity for children; they can strengthen them physically and help keep them healthy, bring new friends into their lives, and teach them important life lessons, including teamwork, responsibility, discipline and courtesy. Supporting sports for your child or teenager can be expensive, especially if there are several children participating in these popular school or extracurricular activities.
