Shared Branching is a nationwide network of credit unions that work together to allow members of one participating credit union to make select transactions in the branch of another participating credit union.
What You Can Do at a Shared Branch Location
If you’re a frequent traveler, or you don’t live near a Connexus branch, Shared Branching could be useful for you. When you visit the branch of a participating credit union, you may be able to make select transactions, including:
- Loan payments
- Loan advances
- Money orders
- Cashier’s checks
- Balance inquiries
- History printouts
You cannot open new accounts or take out new loans at Shared Branch locations. These can only be done online, over the phone, or at a Connexus branch.
How to Use a Shared Branch
This part is easy. First you have to find a CO-OP Shared Branch. When you arrive, let the teller know you’re a member of Connexus Credit Union, give them your member number, and provide a valid government-issued ID. Once you’re verified, you can perform a number of transactions as if you’re in your hometown branch.
