Going out of town? It’s no problem with Shared Branching.
Bank without boundaries with the Credit Union Shared Network
There are dozens of reasons to love your credit union account – great rates, low fees, local service – but sometimes life will take you places where we don’t have an office. That’s where the Co-Op Shared Branching Network comes in. With Shared Branching, you can access your Visions account nationwide – free of charge.
Here’s how it works:
Let’s say you’re out of town and can’t find a Visions location. You walk into a participating credit union with a different name, tell them you’re a Visions member (with valid ID and account number), and you perform the same transactions you would at any dedicated Visions branch.
With Shared Branching, you can:
- Deposit and withdraw cash
- Transfer between accounts
- Deposit checks
- Purchase official checks and money orders
With over 30,000 ATMs and more than 5,000 branches available nationwide, finding a location is easy.
- “Locations” in the Visions FCU Mobile app
- “Hours and Locations” at visionsfcu.org
- “Find an ATM or Branch” at co-opcreditunions.org
Long Island and NYC
In New York City and Long Island in particular, there are several shared credit unions: Bethpage FCU, Teachers FCU, and Justice FCU.
