New Look: CU1 Credit and Debit Cards

Credit Union 1 is excited to share a special new look for our debit and credit cards! These cards each now sport a #CU1LUV emblem, to honor our commitment to lead change, uplift others and value people all across Alaska. Now, when you open a new spending or credit card account with us (or your existing card expires), you’ll receive this neat new design to swipe and enjoy.

Did you know that as a CU1 member, you earn One for All Rewards points each time you pay with your debit or credit card?

Supporting Small Businesses

At Credit Union 1, we’re proud to support Alaskan businesses! If you’re dreaming of small business ownership, we’d like to share a recent change to our documentation requirements. This federally required change, which took effect on May 11, 2018, will aid the government in fighting fraud and other financially-related crimes.

    • In the future, if you open a business account for a legal entity covered under this new regulation, we will ask you for identifying information (such as your name, address, date of birth and social security number) as well as identification documentation (such as your state ID, driver’s license or passport).
    • This info will be gathered for each individual that has 25% or more Beneficial Ownership in the legal entity, along with one individual that has significant managerial control (such as a CEO, President, CFO, VP, etc.).
    • Additionally, we’ll ask that you personally certify that this information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge.

Already one of our valued CU1 business owners? At this time, we likely won’t need to collect this information if your business account was established with us prior to 2018. However, we may be required to collect certain info from you on a case-by-case basis in accordance with this new federal regulation. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

The Story of #CU1LUV

If you’ve ever felt like banks have their values backwards or like your credit union should stay local and loyal, then rest assured that you’re on the right path with Credit Union 1. We live each and every day with the mission to lead change, uplift others and value people – and we achieve this goal in a wide variety of ways.

The #CU1LUV Community Fund

CU1 is excited to announce the launch of our new #CU1LUV Community Fund! This special fund serves as a way for Alaskans whose food, shelter or health is at risk to receive direct assistance from our credit union through a nonprofit organization.

The #CU1LUV Community Fund is supported by funds that Credit Union 1 donates on behalf of members who finance loans with us. For every consumer loan, we’ll donate $1 to this fund. For every real estate loan, we’ll donate $10. Now, when you finance a CU1 loan toward your own life goals – or refinance an existing loan to Credit Union 1 – you’re making a much larger impact on the lives of those around you. That’s #CU1LUV at work, and we’re grateful for your support!
