Greater Member Value and Convenience
For 63 years, Federal Employees West Federal Credit Union (FEWFCU) has remained steadfast in its mission to provide you with excellent member service while bringing you and your family the highest possible value for your membership. Our commitment to this mission remains unwavering. That’s why we’re pleased to share exciting news that the Board of Directors of FEWFCU has unanimously voted to pursue a merger opportunity with Credit Union of Southern California (CU SoCal).
Together, FEWFCU and CU SoCal would provide you with the exceptional personal service you’ve come to expect, add even greater conveniences, and offer a more comprehensive portfolio of financial products to better serve you today and in the future.
This is a very important milestone in our credit union’s history and we are extremely pleased about the many benefits our united organization would bring you.
- Greater Convenience.
You will have immediate access to 18 additional branches located in Anaheim, Brea, City of Industry, Costa Mesa, Covina, El Monte, Fontana, Fullerton, Garden Grove, La Habra, Los Angeles, Ontario, Orange, Pico Rivera, Pomona, and Whittier (3). In addition, you will have immediate access to more than 5,000 shared branches and 2,000 self-service locations throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, and military bases around the globe. You will also continue to have access to America’s largest fee-free ATM network with nearly 30,000 CO-OP Financial Services surcharge-free ATMs.
- Broader portfolio of products and services.
We are excited that our partnership would provide you with additional products and services to deliver higher-value solutions. Our expanded line of services would include mobile banking with bill pay, person-to-person payments, remote check deposit, free credit scores, rewards checking account that pools rewards points with credit cards, credit cards, ApplePay®, and a wide variety of mortgage loan products including Jumbo Mortgage Loan financing and 2nd Chance Mortgage Loans. You will also have credit-builder loans, investment services, and commercial lending to better meet your growing and diverse financial needs.
Unlike bank mergers designed to make money for stockholders, this exciting opportunity will enhance the value of your credit union membership. By partnering with CU SoCal now, we will preserve our service legacy while adding convenience and a comprehensive portfolio of financial products and services to best serve you today and well into the future. Plus, all of FEWFCU staff would remain employed by the new credit union.
We know that it is your continued support and loyalty that determines our success as your financial services provider. We assure you that you have been and would remain our primary focus. Our plan in strategically integrating our two credit unions is to deliver you higher-value solutions as well as enhanced technologies and operating efficiencies for long-term success. The teams will work diligently to help ensure a smooth transition of your accounts and maintain the highest level of service.
We are now seeking regulatory approval of our merger proposal. Please review our Questions and Answers brochure for additional information.
