The Credit Union Difference

As a member of WeStreet Credit Union, you are uniquely positioned to manage your finances and watch your money grow on the best possible terms. Like the member of an elite club, you are entitled to exclusive privileges and individualized service, courtesy of your credit union. Let’s take a quick look at some of the benefits you can enjoy as a member of WeStreet CU. 

1.) Highly Personalized Service 

Credit unions are well known for the highly personalized and attentive service they provide to members. A 2017 American Customer Satisfaction Index Finance and Insurance Report found that members rate credit unions with better service than banks, scoring an average of 82 out of 100. It’s part of what makes credit unions unique. 

When you step through the door of WeStreet CU, you know you’ll always be welcomed by familiar faces, warm smiles and friendly greetings. There are no aloof tellers who don’t know you or your financial situation—just our helpful service specialist who treat you like family. No matter your age or stage in life. At WeStreet CU, we sit down with you to understand your current situation and needs. This will better help us guide you through any monetary challenge you have, align you with the right product and assist you in reaching your financial goals. 

At WeStreet CU, our outstanding member service means we’re personally invested in your financial well-being and only want to see your success. To that end, we do not believe to conducting business to meet a sales goal. Rather, we provide tailored financial solutions to fit your needs. We also offer one-on-one financial education for our members, enabling you to broaden your money knowledge and to learn how to make smarter financial choices. 

2.) Increased Value for Your Money 

As a not-for-profit cooperative, your credit union has modest overhead and marketing expenses. WeStreet CU is proud to pass these savings on to you in the form of low or no account fees, better loan terms and higher dividend payments on your savings. 

At WeStreet CU, we don’t have to answer to outside investors. This enables us to be more attuned to your needs without worrying about increasing our own worth. Our not-for-profit status frees us to offer you optimal terms on Share Certificates, Savings Accounts and more. It’s more money in your pocket just for being a member of WeStreet. 

3.) A Voice in How the Credit Union Operates 

As mentioned, we do not need to answer to stockholders. Instead, WeStreet CU is member-owned, operating with only your best interests in mind. 

As a full-fledged member of WeStreet CU, you have a voice in how your credit union runs. You are invited to cast your ballot in our annual elections in which we vote on a volunteer board of directors. Our board is comprised of members of the credit union, just like you. This means the decisions they make will always be advantageous to our membership and to the general community instead of trying to pander to outside stockholders. We’re all about serving and enriching the lives of others. 

4.) A Chance to Give Back to the Community 

Here at WeStreet CU, we’re strong believers in giving back to the community and inspiring community involvement. We support many community initiatives and organizations, and we are committed to making decisions that benefit the entire community. WeStreet partners with organizations like United Way and Titan Sports Complex because they offer significant programs and services that make the areas they serve a better place to live, work, worship or go to school. 

As a member of WeStreet CU, you are entitled to enjoy all of these benefits and so much more. Whatever your particular needs are, we’re here to help you manage your finances every step of the way.
