Why, When, and How We Will Contact You.

Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union will never email, call, or text you requesting personal information such as user IDs, passwords, or card information. However, there are times when we will need to contact you regarding your accounts. When we contact you, we may ask questions to validate your identity, but we will not ask you for complete account numbers, card numbers, or online credentials. 

If someone contacts you asking about personal information, below are some tips to help verify identity and maintain security.

  • If you question the identity of the call, ask for their company contact information, tell them you need to call them back later and verify their information by calling the company at the phone number provided on their website.
  • Never provide personal information over the phone, including full social security numbers or account numbers. Businesses using this information to verify your identity will most likely only ask you to confirm the last four digits.

Members calling the Credit Union may be asked additional questions to verify identity. As a result, to maintain the highest level of security, longer hold times may occur. The Credit Union continually strives to provide peace of mind when Members conduct transactions in a branch, over the phone, or online.

Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union continually works to keep Members protected a top priority! If you have any questions, call (865) 544-5400 or (800) 467-5427.
