What is Shared Branching?
Shared Branching is a system of credit unions across the country that actually “share” branches. If you are a member of a participating credit union, you can bank at any branch within the network, identified by the CO-OP Shared Branching Logo.
Where are Shared Branches?
Shared Branches are where YOU are! Thousands of Shared Branches are located across the United States as well as Ecuador, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Puerto Rico. Maybe college, business, or a weekend getaway has pulled you away from your home credit union branch. Don’t worry! No matter the reason, you can make real-time transactions at any participating branch.
There is always a Shared Branch nearby. Just look for the CO-OP Shared Branching Logo.
How does it work?
Just enter any credit union that displays the CO-OP Shared Branching Logo. When you enter any Shared Branch, provide the teller with:
- Your home credit union’s name
- Your account number
- A valid government-issued photo I.D., such as a state driver’s license or U.S. passport
Is it safe?
Yes. Using a Shared Branch is just as safe and secure as using your “home” credit union.
What transactions can I conduct?
You can conduct the following transactions at any Shared Branch:
- Cash/Check deposits
- Cash/Check withdrawals
- Loan payments
- Transfer between accounts
- Statement printouts
- Purchase money orders*
- Purchase travelers checks*
- Purchase official checks*
- View details on all transactions
*May not be available all locations
How much does it cost?
Shared Branching is a free member service provided by Abbey Credit Union.
Do I have to sign up?
No. If you are a member of a participating credit union, you can automatically use any Shared Branch, just like you use your “home” credit union.
