Maine CU Members Can Now Use 5,000 Shared Branch Locations Nationwide


Friday, March 8, 2013

The convenience of credit unions just passed another milestone!  The Credit Union Shared Branch Network recently added its 5,000th location nationwide.  With more than 80% of Maine's credit unions belonging to the shared branch network, the continued growth of locations is great news for Maine CU members.  In Maine, there are nearly 160 shared branch locations, close to three times as many branches as any single bank in Maine.

Through shared branching, members of participating credit unions can conduct most financial transactions including making loan payments, deposits, withdrawals and a number of other services, at no charge.  "Shared branching gives credit union members the ability to access their finances as if they were standing in the lobby of their hometown credit union.  Credit union members in Maine love this service and convenience, and are utilizing it in record numbers.  With people on the go more than ever, we anticipate continued growth in usage, not only within in Maine but with credit union members traveling outside the state," remarked Debra Trautman, Corporate Marketing Manager for the Maine Credit Union League.
