Love Where You Bank

Empowering you to Truly Love Where You Bank

Welcome to Utah Community Credit Union (UCCU), where financial empowerment meets community support. During the holiday season, we reflect on the values that make us unique and the services that set us apart to help members truly Love Where They Bank. In this article, we’ll dive into three key aspects that define our commitment to our members and the communities we serve including the banking experience with UCCU, assisting the community, and the choice to bank with a credit union rather than a bank.

Banking with UCCU: A Holistic Financial Experience

At UCCU, we understand that financial well-being is a journey and does not happen in a moment. We’re here to guide you every step of the way. Our comprehensive banking services cater to various needs, ensuring that our members have the tools to achieve their financial goals.

UCCU Assists: Supporting Our Community Beyond Banking

Our commitment to the community extends beyond financial services. UCCU Assists is our way of giving back and making a positive impact on the lives of those around us.

  1. UCCU Assist Program:  UCCU Assists programs address the unique needs of our community members. From financial literacy workshops to assistance for those facing unexpected challenges, we believe in being a source of support when it matters most.
  2. UCCU Assist Scholarships:  Education is a cornerstone of empowerment. Through the UCCU Assist Scholarships, we invest in the future of our community. These scholarships, awarded during the high school game of the week, recognize and support the academic achievements of local students, fostering a culture of learning and growth.

Credit Unions vs Banks: Making the Clear Choice

Choosing where to bank is a significant decision. While banks and credit unions may offer similar services, the differences lie in their values and priorities.

Credit unions like UCCU are member-owned, not-for-profit organizations. This means our primary focus is on the well-being of our members, not maximizing profits for shareholders. Our decisions are driven by the needs of our community, and our goal is to empower individuals and families to achieve financial success.

When you bank with UCCU, you become part of a cooperative where your voice matters. You’re not just a customer; you’re also a member with a stake in the organization’s success. Thus the five dollars you add to the required savings account is your share in the credit union. If you ever leave the credit union, you can in essence “sell” your share and get the five dollars back.

In contrast, banks operate for profit, and their decisions are influenced by shareholder interests. While banks provide essential financial services, the clear advantage of a credit union lies in its member-centric approach, community focus, and commitment to financial education and assistance.

Love Where You Bank

Utah Community Credit Union is more than a financial institution; it’s a financial partner in your journey and a supporter of the community. From personalized banking solutions to community outreach programs, UCCU is committed to making a positive impact.
