Answer: Dyskolos "We have been given approval by NCUA, our federal regulator, to expand our service area to include all employees of federal, state, county and municipal agencies or departments engaged in the police protection industry who work in the states of Nebraska or Iowa," OPFCU President Mary Johnson said. The credit union's charter began in 1958 to serve the Omaha Police Department and through the years is has developed into a full-service financial institution with the capability of serving a large geographic area. Until now, the areas served included seven counties in Nebraska and Pottawattamie County in Iowa. "With so much banking today being conducted on the Internet, a physical presence is not the necessity it used to be. Innovations like Mobiliti™ and secure Docusign make long-distance banking possible in many cases. We offer services such as CUFFS Online Bankig, AutoBill Pay, Mobile Banking with Remote, Deposit Capture and Direct Deposit. We have been serving outlying areas of Omaha for some time with great success and we are sure we can do the same for all new members in Nebraska or Iowa," she said. "Some of our members may move or have eligible family members outside our current service area. Now we will have no trouble serving them even if they are located elsewhere in one of the two states." All employees and their immediate families (sworn and civilian) of federal, state, county, and municipal agencies or departments engaged in the police protection industry and who work in the state of NEBRASKA or IOWA are eligible for membership.
