In the four years since shared branching was introduced to credit union members in Maine, the number of credit unions participating and members using shared branching continues to grow at a rapid rate. There are now over 90 Maine locations, and it doesn’t end there. Shared branching allows members of participating Maine credit unions to conduct a wide variety of financial transactions at more than 3,400 locations across the country and in five foreign countries, all at no charge!

“Shared branching provides more locations to conduct financial transactions than any other financial institution in Maine, and still enables members to receive the exceptional credit union service that Maine’s credit unions are recognized for. From Millinocket to York, credit union members can find a shared branch location when they travel throughout the state, or even when they head out of state for work, vacation or school. Shared branching means that a great number of Maine’s 600,000 credit union members can use their credit union across town, across state and across the country,” explained John Murphy, president of the Maine Credit Union League.

Shared branching allows members of participating credit unions to access thousands of credit union service center outlets via the cooperative network of service centers in the United States and overseas. Many key member services are offered at shared branching locations across the country including: account deposits; cash and check withdrawals; transfers between accounts; cash advances, loan payments, and balance inquiries. Extended service hours with weekend hours are even offered at some locations, while money orders, traveler’s checks or official checks can also be purchased at various locations. Shared branching provides an easy way for members to conduct financial transactions, combining convenience with spectacular member service.
