His Story

Justin joined the credit union when he was working with a cooperative. He’s no longer with the co-op, but he’s still an active member, with Vacation, Holiday Helper and Checking accounts. He financed a couple of trucks, scored a couple of personal loans and still loves the Visa Platinum credit card and its uChoose Rewards.

He knows that once he’s a member, he can remain a member even if he changes jobs, relocates, or retires.
