Shared Branching Posted on 10.11.2013 Bookmark the permalink Did you know Point West has over 5,000 branches nationwide? Point West is your local, single-branch credit union based out of Northeast Portland. However, through the shared branching CO-OP network we are accessible at thousands of locations across the country. Many of you are already taking advantage of this great Point West benefit – we want to make sure all of our members know about the convenience of accessing our partners in the Credit Union community. Nationwide Access The website www.co-opsharedbranch.org is a great resource for locating shared branches in your area. Simply enter your location details and a map will fill with icons indicating the locations of shared branches nearest you. It’s equally easy if you’re on the go; an app called “Credit Union Shared Branching Locator,” is available for free download for both Apple and Android supported mobile devices. The easy-to-use interface on these apps makes finding a shared branch close by, at all times. Both the app and the website show location, phone number to the branch, branch hours, and even offer directions and maps to the location! Range of Services CO-OP shared branching locations offer most basic services which include cash and check deposits, withdrawals, and cashier’s checks. You must have your full account number ready as well as a current state-issued ID or passport to access teller services. The range of services as well as the amount of cash the location will allow you to withdraw may vary, so it’s always a good idea to call ahead to ensure the smoothest possible transaction. The phone numbers for our CO-OP partners are listed on both the website and the app. Which Institutions?
