What is Shared Branching?

co-op shared branch

Credit unions across America share their branch locations. It means you can go to other credit unions that participate in the CO-OP Shared Branch network and take care of your transactions as if you were at your local First Credit Union branch. It's unique to credit unions. With more than 7,200 locations it's one of the largest branch networks in the country -- larger than many "Big Box Banks," see the chart below for details.

You can make deposits, withdrawals, loan payments, and transfers, plus purchase traveler's checks and money orders too with shared branching.

Yes, We're Convenient!

It's myth credit unions that aren't convenient. How does First Credit Union compare to the "Big Box Banks" in terms of branch and surcharge-free ATM locations? Just look for yourself.
