CEFCU @ Work

What does partnership footnote 1 mean?

Partnering with CEFCU provides another employee benefit — one your employees will really appreciate. The partnership doesn’t cost you (or your employees) a thing, but it gives you both so much.

Partner Benefits

You and your employees can enjoy:

  • Affordable loan options
  • Financial education
  • Special offers
  • Free account access
  • A dedicated account representative
  • Personal financial services

How is CEFCU different?

At CEFCU, you’re not a customer, you’re a member/owner. We provide personal service to you and your employees. Unlike banks, CEFCU doesn’t have stockholders — we’re owned by members — so our earnings are returned to members through lower loan rates, fewer fees, and more benefits.

Plus, when business results permit, CEFCU returns excess capital to our member/owners. Since 2010, CEFCU has returned $415 million to members in the form of an Extraordinary Dividend. footnote 2

Yes, your employees get to take advantage of great rates and lower fees, which will save them money. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you and your employees.

Can you come to our location?
Yes, contact us to schedule a visit. During that time we can help employees set up CEFCU accounts and direct deposit.

We can conduct seminars at your location and provide you with educational materials. In addition, CEFCU has partnered with GreenPath Financial Wellness to provide members with financial counseling and information.

Is there a cost to the company?
Partnering with CEFCU is free. We think it’s something your employees will really appreciate because they’ll have access to affordable Loans, free Checking, and more. Call us today to get started.

Will I have to spend a lot of time setting up this program?
No, we’ll work with your employees to set up their accounts. Periodically we will send you helpful promotional information that you can post or forward to your employees.

I have a friend who works for a company with CEFCU. How do I join?
Your friend’s company has partnered with CEFCU, so your friend qualifies for membership. Before you can join, you need to work for a partner company or meet membership requirements.

I want to buy a home, but I don’t know where to start.
We can help you through the entire Mortgage process. Start with our Home Loan Center, ask your employer about hosting a seminar on buying a home, and contact us for personal help.

Do your seminars cost anything?
We work with our partners, including your employer, to provide free financial education. Talk to us about what’s available, and we can work with your employer to get you access.

My company partners with CEFCU. How does that help me?
CEFCU members not only get great rates and lower fees; but there are perks, like direct deposit and special promotions, too. Come visit us the next time we’re at your place of work, and we’ll get you started!

I don’t live close to a CEFCU, so how can I bank with you?
First, we’ll sign you up for Direct Deposit, and you can designate where your paycheck goes — Checking, Savings, Loans. CEFCU also has great eServices, like Online Banking and Mobile Banking. Electronic options are secure and fast.

1. Partner companies are independent companies that have entered into an agreement with CEFCU to have CEFCU provide credit union membership as an employee benefit.

2. The Extraordinary Dividend is not guaranteed, and can only be authorized by CEFCU's volunteer Board of Directors when business results allow.
