A Security Partnership between You and MERCO

Here at MERCO Credit Union we do our part by choosing partners that hold your personal information to the highest degree. We believe it is important to protect yourself and your computer. We’ve compiled this list of cyber security tips to help you do your part in keeping your information as safe as possible.

  1. Make sure your password is unique and is 8 or more characters that combine letters, numerals, and symbols. Do not use the same user ID and password for your financial accounts as you do for other sites.
  2. Keep your computer operating system and browser up to date with the latest software and security downloads. These may be called "patches" or "service packs" and should be installed as soon as possible.
  3. Make sure when going on a mobile device or computer for doing financial transactions that you are on a secured Wi-Fi network, which requires you to enter a password to use it. Try to avoid “open to the public” unsecured wireless networks these have no protection and no security whatsoever – anyone can get onto it.

MERCO SUPPORTS “GROW MERCED/BUY LOCAL” MOVEMENT

What is Grow Merced? Grow Merced is a countywide awareness program for citizens and business owners to promote the economic and social value of supporting local businesses within our community.

Why Buy Local?

Here are a couple of reasons why “Buy Local” makes sense:
• Creates new jobs and sustains existing jobs.
• Every dollar spent at a locally owned business returns five times that amount within our community through city/county taxes, employee wages, and the purchase of other local goods and services.

What Can I Do?

As a consumer, look for opportunities to buy local instead of shopping on the internet or traveling out of town.
As a member of MERCO Credit Union, you are supporting a local business that started here in Merced County back in 1954.

How Does MERCO Support “Buy Local”?

MERCO offers a “Buy Local, Borrow Local” auto loan discount program. As an incentive to buy local, MERCO gives a .50% discount on your auto loan rate if you buy your auto from a local dealer in Merced County. In addition, we share our success by support local charities and events…such as the MERCO Credit Union Half Marathon.

 

Why Is “Buy Local” Important?

Our community’s formula for success is simple…Think Local, Buy Local, Support Local. We all have a stake and responsibility in this…we are only as successful as our neighbor.
