CO-OP Shared Branching

CO-OP Shared Branching logo

Modern shared branching is aimed at providing credit union members convenient access to their accounts using existing credit union branch locations and shared technology.  Transactions are transmitted from branch to branch in a manner similar to that of an ATM network.  Through strategic cooperation, credit unions have joined together to create a dynamic and innovative solution to the need for convenient access points for credit union members, without taking on the expense of building many new branches.

CO-OP Shared Branching, the Association’s Shared Branching network partner, has made the process of linking to over 5,500 credit union branches and 2,200 24/7 Kiosks around the world easy to understand and easy to accomplish.  This network of shared facilities is a financially attractive alternative to building your own new branches.  Credit unions using the system have also found that it is a powerful member-retention tool.
