DCT FCU’s New Website — Coming Soon!
The District of Columbia Teachers’ Federal Credit Union is proud to announce the unveiling of our new website along with a new Internet and voice banking service on Wednesday‚ February 8’ 2017.
The new and improved features of the Internet Banking required that we change the format for the PIN number. With identity theft and hackers lurking, now when you access your DCTFCU online internet account, you will be required to change your PIN number to an Alpha/Numeric PIN number that must be a minimum of eight (8) numbers and letters with one of the letter’s being Uppercase. (Example: 12Dctfcu) You may use any combination as long as it has numbers and letters. No special characters are to be used! Example: (*&^%$, etc.) Also, as added security you may set up a username instead of entering your account number. User names are preferred to enhance security. Please contact the credit union if you need assistance. As an added convenience, you will be able to reset your password without assistance from the credit union!
NOTE: All CURRENT Internet banking users MUST RE-REGISTER in order to use the new Internet system!!!!
Voice Banking (MacLine) will have a new feel also. Increased security measures have been incorporated to protect your vital information from identity theft. More information on our new voice banking service will be forthcoming.
DCTFCU Mobile Banking Application coming during the 2nd quarter 2017.

Please be advised that we are in the process installing a new computer system‚ that will greatly enhance our everyday automated efficiency and workflow. Additionally‚ we anticipate that this new system will provide you with a more efficient way of gaining access to your account electronically.
The conversion will start with a new core processor. The next phase will be the installation of our new telephone system‚ home banking and bill pay modules. You will notice more ease of use and more user friendly screens.
We will be experiencing some down time‚ and in an effort to minimize any interruption to you‚ our members‚ we have established times that we believe will have minimal impact. That time has been established as 12:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. As we approach these installations‚ we will inform you of the exact date and time of the changes via our website and through handouts at our offices.
There will be new processes and procedures to learn‚ and we will work with you to make sure your transition is performed with ease.
At this time‚ I want to personally thank you on behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff for the last 79 years for the opportunity to be of service to you. We work hard to make DCTFCU your one stop financial institution and we look forward to continually serving you!
NEW PHISHING SCAM —
This fraudulent attempt to capture account information is done with an automated SMS/text message referring to themselves as CO-OP Mobile.
The text message requests members to enter their account information (including ATM PIN number). Members should avoid clicking links within the text messages and not respond to these messages that request account information.
CO-OP Mobile SMS/text Messages do NOT ask members for account information including ATM PIN numbers. Members that may have felt they have responded to this scam should contact the credit union to close and obtain a new card.
There are so many ways for perpetrators to attempt to get personal information, including the use of auto-dialers and text messages.
IMPORTANT REMINDER —
To protect yourself and your account NEVER release your PIN number to anyone
Monday and Thursday from 10 AM until 4:30 PM. Friday from 10 AM until 5:30 PM.
