Credit unions by their nature are community based. Protecting our beautiful state’s natural resources has long been a priority initiative. Members are encouraged to “go green” through incentives, such as special rates on loans for fuel efficient cars, appliances, alternative heating sources and energy efficient home improvements.
With technology capabilities, most credit unions across the state are offering services that allow employees and members to reduce paper consumption. Online statements are available, eliminating the paper copy that fills your mailbox and your file drawer. Debit cards, mobile wallets, and direct deposit are all ways to save paper that would have been used for checks. With Remote Deposit Capture on your smartphone, you save time and paper by depositing checks through your credit union’s mobile app, and utilizing online bill pay saves both paper and the cost of a stamp.
Staying on top of your account information can be green too. Sent directly to your email, eAlerts keep you posted on the important information you need to know about your accounts. eAlerts can notify you of deposits, withdrawals, when your account balance drops below a preselected amount, or when loan payments are due.
