Do you have valuables in your home that you don't feel are secure enough? Worried about robbery or damage? For mere pennies a day, Westoba Credit Union offers you use of safety deposit boxes. These boxes will store your precious items, protecting them from theft, fire, or any other hazard.
You always have access to your safety deposit box, to take out or put in anything you wish. When you purchase your safety deposit box, a lease is signed, and at that time you can designate who can enter the box. ONLY the people noted on your lease have access to your box. You get two keys to your box, one which we recommend you keep at home in a safe place. In order to access your box, a master key is required, which is in the possession of Westoba Credit Union.
Sizes Westoba Credit Union's safety deposit boxes come in different sizes, so you can choose your box to suit your needs. Check with your branch for sizes and prices that apply to you.
It is important to keep a record of contents of your safety deposit box. If you wish you can print out a copy of our Record of Contents form by right clicking the link and selecting "save target as"- to copy the pdf to your hard drive. Use Adobe's Acrobat Reader to open the file and print it out.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is involved in getting a Safety Deposit Box?When you open a safety deposit box, a lease is signed identifying those who may access the box. You are given two keys which can only be duplicated through your Credit Union. We recommend you carry one key and store the other at home (not in your safety deposit box). We have a master key which is required along with one of your keys to open the box. Only the people designated in your lease agreement are allowed to access the box. Access is available during WESTOBA CREDIT UNION's hours of operation. Please click the Contact Us button at the top to view our business hours.
What if I lose my Key?If you lose one of your keys, bring the other in to WESTOBA CREDIT UNION immediately for duplication. If both keys are lost, the box must be drilled and the lock replaced. The cost of this expensive procedure is your responsibility.
Are the Contents of my Safety Deposit Box Insured?WESTOBA CREDIT UNION is unable to provide insurance on what you store in your safety deposit box as the contents are confidential and known only to you. If this is a concern, please contact your insurance agent to arrange coverage.
What happens if I become disabled or die?Documents can be released to properly authorized persons such as your spouse or executor/executrix.
