CO-OP Shared Branches get A+ from College Students

Chances are you joined a credit union because it’s conveniently located near your home or workplace – but that doesn’t always translate to convenience for your family members. That’s especially true if one of those family members is heading away to college this fall.

If your student is going to school in a town where your credit union doesn’t have a branch – don’t worry. By finding a CO-OP Shared Branch, your student can access a credit union account, just as if they’re at the home branch. [Credit Union Name] is a part of the CO-OP Shared Branch network – which means that most likely there’s a shared branch near your son or daughter’s campus.

There’s no fee to access your credit union accounts at a shared branch. This can save you and your college student money on ATM fees if you can’t find a no-surcharge ATM.
