A Message From Our President
Dear Member, If you are like me, you’re probably getting excited about the warmer temperatures and extended daylight. Spring is one of my favorite seasons because I enjoy getting back outside to do some hiking, golfing, and traveling. If your plans for the spring and summer include going on vacation, sprucing up your home, or buying a new car, we can help. Our Credit Union is well-capitalized, and we have money to lend to our members. To help you save money, we offer low rates on our real estate loans, credit card and personal loans, vacation loans, auto, boat, RV loans, and student loans.
I am pleased to announce that we’ve hired a new Business Lending Analyst, Steven Wickenheiser, to assist in developing our business lending program so that we can provide more business lending opportunities to you. If your goals for 2021 include launching a new business or making business enhancements, please look for additional information on our website in the coming months.
I am also very excited to share that we are reinventing our checking accounts this year with new and unexpected benefits that will help save you money, lower your bills, and put important safety and protection benefits at your fingertips. Our new checking account benefits will provide you with extra savings on local and nationwide deals, soften the financial impact of stolen or broken cell phones, get emergency help when your vehicle lets you down, and more. Checking accounts at UECU will do more than ever before. And you’ll be the first to hear all about it very soon. We’ve also redesigned the UECU website to provide you with a better mobile experience on all of your Apple and Android devices. We’ll continue to make enhancements to the website, so please visit often and check out the new features.
If you are traveling to visit friends and family in Pennsylvania this summer, please don’t forget to tell them about UECU membership. With our new partnership with PACC, the Pennsylvania American Consumer Council, all PA residents are eligible for credit union membership, no matter where they live or work in the state. I hope that you and your family have a safe and relaxing summer and get to enjoy some extra family time together.
Sincerely, Bret Krevolin President/CEO and UECU Member
