Shared Branching: It's all about location

Take your CU back to school with Shared Branches 

It's nearing the time where many 18-to-25 year olds will be returning back to school in the next few weeks (or maybe attending for the first time). If think you have to join another credit union or find the nearest bank to your campus, think again. 

The CO-OP Shared Branch network is made up of credit unions that have joined forces to provide their members with the kind of financial convenience traditionally available from only big banks. 

According to the CO-OP Shared Branch website, this means, when your credit union is part of the CO-OP Shared Branch, you’re welcome at over 5,000 credit union branches. That adds up to convenience comparable to the country’s largest banks.

The CO-OP Shared Branch network has recently rebranded their logo. Instead of looking for the “swirl” logo when visiting a participating location, you can now look for the new CO-OP Shared Branch logo. Credit unions are beginning to replace the previous logos with the new logos in all locations, so be on the look-out for the new signage the next time you visit one of the thousands of locations available to you.

To search locations or to find out if your credit union is part of the CO-OP, it's easy to search statewide with Maine's Credit Unions website and across the nation with the CO-OP Shared Branch website. So no matter where you go to school, travel, or live you will be able to find a shared branch near you. 

Remember to be on the look out for the new logo!
