What is a Share Account?
A Share Account is equal to one share in the credit union. The par value of a share is $5. If you elect to become a member of MIDFLORIDA, we will open and pay your $5 Share Account for you the week following conversion in April. This will give you access to MIDFLORIDA's full line of products and services.
Why didn’t my joint owner receive an offer for a Share Account?
Joint owners will come over with the account and can continue to access the account as they always have. The Share Account that MIDFLORIDA requires for membership is only necessary for the primary account holder because it represents one share in the credit union, and is the base account upon which all your other accounts are tied to.
Can my joint owner have a Share Account too?
If you would like your joint owner to be joint on your Share Account or if your joint owner would like to open their own Share Account, please visit a Community Bank & Trust (soon to become MIDFLORIDA Credit Union) branch after the closing on November 8.

Are my accounts still insured up to $250,000?

Both organizations protect consumers against losses if a financial institutions fails.
