Community Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution that is owned and operated entirely by its members. From its humble beginnings in 1945, CCU has grown to provide for the financial needs of anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Androscoggin County or has a family member who does.

To best serve its busy members, CCU has locations at 144 Pine Street in Lewiston, 40 Stanley Street in Auburn and its newest branch at 1025 Auburn Road (Route 4) in Turner. They also offer the latest features in banking technology with online banking, teller-phone, mobile banking and online loan applications.

A well-known credit union tagline is Not for Profit, Not for Charity, But for Service. Numerous awards and honors received both locally and nationally, attest that Community Credit Union practices the philosophy of people helping people in their everyday operations.

“At Community Credit Union, ‘Community Comes First’ is not just a statement on our website,” explained Kerry Wood, president/CEO. “Meeting the needs of members is first priority. We’ve taken pride in helping thousands of members meet their goals with savings, checking and loans be it a single mom saving for college, a couple planning to retire or helping a business get started. We have the staff and the financial tools to get them where they want to be.”

For the personal or business needs of its members, CCU provides cutting-edge services including online banking, e-statements, bill payer, Docusign and eAlerts. And Community Credit Union is looking forward to rolling out mobile deposit capture later this year.

“CCU is also a part of the Shared Branch Network,” explained Laurie Pelletier, VP of branch operations. “Shared Branch Network is a group of credit unions allowing members to carry out transactions such as transfers, loan payments, deposits or cashing payroll checks at other participating credit unions.”

Personal services include Money Markets, IRAs, Club Accounts and Share Certificates and Youth Accounts. Members can also take advantage of competitive rates on a wide array of loan products, including Auto Loans, Recreational Vehicle Loans, Mortgages, Personal Loans and more. Business members can take advantage of low fees and competitive loan rates as well as connect with many partner organizations for products such as merchant services, payroll services, insurance services and money management services.

To keep in touch with its busy members, Community Credit Union is active on social media. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are great avenues for fun videos, contests, trivia and daily financial tips.

“Online tools are a must and there is an entire section on dedicated to financial resources for all ages,” added Wood. “These online tools feature interactive games, videos and articles. There are calculators, budget blueprints and retirement planning tools, too. These resources are available to the public, so check them out! Community Credit Union also offers an online loan application. You complete the application and a knowledgeable, experienced loan officer will contact you about your loan request promptly.”
