Edmonds has a new financial institution.
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union opened a new branch on Tuesday, located inside Safeway at 23632 Highway 99. It takes the spot formerly held by the Boeing Employees Credit Union (BECU).
"The branch we had in the Safeway was not large enough to meet our needs so we relocated it to a standlone location just down Highway 99," said Tood Pietzsch, spokesman for BECU. "While it is just a couple of miles south it is no longer in the Edmonds city limits." (It is located 18336 Aurora Ave., Suite 109, Shoreline).
Alaska USA ATMs are part of the NWCU Alliance Network and are surcharge-free for BECU members.
The Alaska USA branch offers a full range of credit union services, including a 24-hour ATM and a self-service Center. It is open seven days a week.
“With this new in-store branch, members in Edmonds can experience the convenience of Alaska USA near where they live, work, and shop, and others in the area now have the opportunity to experience Alaska USA’s convenient services,” said president Bill Eckhardt in a news release.
Alaska USA opened its first branch in western Washington nearly 30 years ago and now operates 21 branches in the state, including in Shoreline, Bothell, Seattle, Kirkland and Bellevue.
The credit union also operates financial service companies in Washington, including Alaska USA Mortgage Company and Alaska USA Insurance Brokers.
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with $4.9 billion in assets and more than 450,000 members worldwide. The credit union operates 63 branches throughout Alaska, California, and Washington.
