Signature Guarantee Program
A Signature Guarantee is a form of authentication issued by Houston Federal Credit Union and other financial institutions that verifies the legitimacy of a signature and the signatory’s overall request. This type of guarantee is often used in situations where financial instruments are being transferred.
With the number of crimes related to identity theft rising each year, using a signature guarantee service is a great way to prevent others from capitalizing on your identity in order to commit fraudulent acts. In order to provide some sort of signature guarantee, a financial institution must be a member of a recognized securities guarantee program, such as Medallion. Houston Federal Credit Union is a member of the Medallion Signature Guarantee program.
The following items are required to take advantage of our Signature Guarantee program:
- You must be a member of Houston Federal Credit Union
- Have valid identification to verify your identity
- Bring account statements for the funds being guaranteed
There is a small fee for this service. Please refer to our fee schedule.
