Our local business district is on the grow as Our Community Credit Union announced the opening of their newest branch located in the newly-expanded Steamboat Square, at 6541 Sexton Dr. NW. The 2100 square foot facility includes seating and ample space to provide customer service. There’s also an indoor teller machine that accepts both check and cash deposits. Current members of OCCU will certainly benefit from the closer location. And local residents who are looking for alternatives to for-profit banks now need not go very far to learn of the advantages of joining a credit union.
“We believe this is a perfect fit for the families and businesses in the Steamboat community, in addition to being a great convenience for our OCCU members who commute from Shelton,” said Bert Fisher, President/CEO of OCCU. “We are excited to get to know the Steamboat community and have the opportunity to provide them with local, affordable, financial products and services.”
Our Community Credit Union is a not-for-profit, full-service, financial alternative to a bank. One member’s savings deposit is another member’s loan. As a member-owned financial cooperative, credit unions are not-for-profit. They function to serve their membership. As a result, credit unions can pay very competitive dividends on savings and offer great interest rates on loans. Anyone living, working, or attending school in Washington State can join. You can even join OCCU online. A minimum deposit of $25 into a savings account is all it takes to become a member.
OCCU offers a wide variety of financial services. Personal checking and savings accounts, different kinds of loans, mortgages, and home equity lines of credit, and Visa cards. Retirement planning and investment advisory services are available. For those of you seeking business services, including an assortment of merchant services, “you will get the kind of rates and attention you deserve as a business owner.”
An online banking portal and mobile apps are available, too. You can access your OCCU account details and perform various tasks, online, from practically any location on the planet. Click here for more details regarding their mobile apps.
