Credit Union 1 is proud to serve and celebrate our members throughout Alaska – and in October, we’re celebrating at our Ketchikan Branch! On Thursday October 12, from 6:30-8:30pm, join us for free hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and a chance to meet CU1’s new President/CEO Paul Yang.
As part of the evening’s festivities, Credit Union 1 will host a silent auction to benefit L.I.F.E in Alaska and their efforts to provide a safe, productive and meaningful environment for people with disabilities. We know that local Alaskan programs like this are close to our members’ hearts, which is why CU1 will MATCH up to $10,000 raised during the evening!
For a fun night-out and an important opportunity to help your fellow Alaskans in need, visit Credit Union 1’s Ketchikan Branch on October 12. Everyone is welcome, and we hope to see you there!
Credit Union 1 is hosting an exclusive autumn loan event to help you afford a new car, truck or Alaskan toy in time for winter. Whether that means a larger, all-wheel drive SUV, a shiny new snowmachine or a hunt-ready ATV, CU1 1 is here to help! We’ll clear your payment schedule for 90 days on a new vehicle or toy, so you can make the most of cooler weather in a safe and affordable way.
Stop by any branch or apply online for your loan pre-approval, so you can shop for your winter-ready vehicle or Alaskan toy with buying power in hand! We’ll help you find a great loan interest rate and terms that meet your needs, so you can spend less time worried about your budget and more time enjoying the beauty of Alaska’s snow season.
*No payments for 90 days on approved credit. Offer valid for cars, SUVs, light trucks, boats, personal watercraft, motorcycles, RVs, ATVs and snowmachines only, closed by October 31, 2017. Delaying your first payment may increase finance charges. Offer subject to change without notice. Offer not valid for refinancing of existing Credit Union 1 loans.
Recently, the credit-reporting agency Equifax released news of a cybersecurity breach that occurred this summer and may have impacted up to 143 million Americans. As part of this breach, the criminals involved gained access to names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses and some driver's license numbers.
While Credit Union 1 has continuous fraud protection in place for our members, you can also make use of a tool on the Equifax website to confirm if your private information was involved in this breach and sign up for free credit monitoring:
While Equifax is working hard to minimize the effects of this criminal act, please do not respond to any unverified or suspicious inquiries about your account. Fraudsters may take advantage of worried consumers by pretending to be associated with your accounts. However, Credit Union 1 will NEVER initiate a request for your private account information via phone, email or text.
To further protect yourself, please refresh your fraud-fighting skills with these handy tips and keep an eye on CU1’s website for news, as we post real-time scam alerts that could affect our members. As always, if you have a particular concern, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org any time. We’re here to help keep you safe!
To help support all those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, Credit Union 1 has established a donation account that will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. If you would like to contribute, please visit any CU1 branch or transfer funds via Online Access to account 457311 CSC S1.2.
In support of hurricane victims, Credit Union 1 has contributed $3,000 toward relief efforts – and with your help, we’d like to reach $4,000 in total donations. Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Thank you for helping make a life-saving difference for those in need.
Each year, Credit Union 1 is proud to award thousands of dollars in scholarships to Alaskans who are pursuing higher education. These efforts celebrate our credit union’s origin as an Anchorage teachers’ credit union as well as our passion for lifelong learning! 2017 marks our 30th year of awarding scholarship funds, and the winners of this year’s Bill Countryman Scholarship include:
In total, we’re excited to give $15,000 in scholarship funds to the above CU1 members! We’d also like to extend special thanks to each of the 40+ applicants who applied for our 2017 Bill Countryman Scholarship. In reviewing each and every application, we were proud to see how you are expanding your education to help make Alaska a better place!
