Message from the President

Looking back on 2016, I am pleased to share that UECU had another outstanding year. The year culminated with giving back almost $600,000 to our members through the Member Loyalty Bonus™ Program, this is in addition to the cumulative $4.7 million that we awarded since the program began in 2011. There are not many financial institutions that offer a give-back program like this, but we do because as a financial co-operative our focus is on you, our members. We also expanded our suite of mobile pay services, launched the Student Choice Loan Program, and created the My First UECU Program to help those beginning their financial journey.

In 2016 we also made enhancements to our Credit Union branding. You may have noticed a refreshed company logo and our new tagline: Exclusive. Exceptional. Empowering. Reflecting the People We Serve. We believe the new tagline better reflects our focus on serving the employees (and family members) of over 500 select companies with 24/7 convenience and exceptional products and services. To capture what it is that makes UECU so unique, we created a new video that highlights our staff and three generations of Credit Union members and their experiences. Please share the video with your family and friends, at

Thank you for referring many new members through our online referral program in 2016. They too benefit from UECU’s low-cost loans, exceptional savings options, and unique reward programs. We appreciate your referrals and welcome you to continue sharing the benefits of Credit Union membership.

In February 2017, we will be launching two new checking accounts, the Rewards Checking Account and the Rewards Checking PLUS Account. The transition to two checking options is an outcome of an initiative to simplify our product lineup to make it easier to understand, and reflects our commitment to continually enhancing our products and services to better serve you. These new accounts continue to help you save money with low to no fees, and provide several new features, including a lower minimum balance requirement on interest checking, fee forgiveness, and new mobile capabilities. With a UECU checking account and Visa® debit card, you are able to easily accumulate reward points redeemable for cash, merchant gift cards or a rate reduction on your next eligible UECU loan.

As we begin a new year, the UECU team remains committed to providing you with unique programs and exceptional service; empowering you to reach your financial goals. We know you have options, and sincerely thank you for choosing UECU as your trusted financial partner. We will continue to work hard to retain that trust.

Our best wishes go out to you and your family for a happy and healthy New Year,

Pat Zyma
President / CEO and UECU Member
