My credit union does this in the other direction (I have a pre-established secret word that they ask for in order to prove I'm myself; I think there's even another one I'm supposed to use if I'm under duress, but I can't recall).

Yeah, that's exactly the same as the scenario outlined in the OP. How do you know that whoever called you is in fact your credit union?
