Being part of WCU Credit Union definitely has its perks, and being a part of the Shared Branching Network is just one of them. Now, no matter where you are in the U.S.A., you can take care of your credit union business just like you would at home.
What is Shared Branching?
The Shared Branching Network allows WCU members to do business at another credit union location. The network has more than 5,600 participating credit union locations all over the United States. Through Shared Branching, participating credit unions can serve members from all over the country if needs arise while they are traveling. Even if you decide to move to another state, you can still bank with WCU through the network.
What Can I Do at a Participating Location?
Most all of your banking needs can be taken care of at a participating branch location. You can:
- Make deposits
- Withdraw funds
- Transfer funds between accounts
- Check balances
- Process loan payments
The only thing required of you to make these transactions is your account number and a valid ID. Since all credit unions don’t have the same user interfaces on their networks, the tellers at another location can’t search for your account with your social security number like they could at your home location. Therefore, it is important to have your account number with you when you go to a Shared Branch location.
We hope next time you are traveling or are out of the neighborhood and need account assistance that you will take advantage of our Shared Branching capabilities.
