Manage Your Money on the Go with Shared Branching

Got travel plans coming up? It could be a business trip, family vacation, romantic getaway for two, or exciting solo adventure.

Whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure, how will you manage your money while you’re away from home? How will you check your balance, transfer funds, and make payments?

That’s where shared branching comes in.

So, what is shared branching? It’s a special service just for credit union members. A nationwide Co-Op Network of participating credit unions lets you conveniently manage your money no matter where you go and handles around 3 billion transactions each year.

What are the benefits of shared branching?

#1: Access Your Money Anywhere

When you need in-person banking services while away from home, the network is there.

Members of participating credit unions can visit more than 6,800 shared branches in all 50 states as well as overseas.

You also have access to more than 30,000 ATMs worldwide.

#2: It’s Easy to Find Branches & ATMs

Looking for an ATM? Need to find the closest credit union?

Search by Mobile App

The Credit Union Co-Op offers three convenient mobile apps that enable you to:

  • Find participating branches and ATMs

You can also search online through the CU Service Center. Look for participating branches and ATMs by zip code, city, address, or country.

  • For your convenience, you can filter your search results to find branches that are open on Sundays, have drive-thru service, or offer self-service options.
