SEATTLE (June 19, 2017) — BECU, Washington's largest community credit union, today announced it will open a new Neighborhood Financial Center in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle later this year. At more than 3,200 square-feet, the new financial center will be located near the corner of NW 85th Street and 1st Avenue NW, across from Fred Meyer. BECU members will be able to establish accounts, apply for loans and perform financial transactions.
“We are committed to making it even more convenient for members to access their accounts and BECU services. This includes a healthy mix of enhancing our digital banking experiences and adding new physical locations,” said Doug Marshall, BECU's senior vice president of retail. “New locations in West Seattle, downtown Seattle, Wallingford and Greenwood with help increase our service to more than 155,000 members who live in Seattle.”
As with BECU's other Neighborhood Financial Centers, the new Greenwood location will rely on an innovative “tellerless” layout, which empowers members to access their accounts in ways most convenient for them, including ATM, online banking and mobile banking. Member consultants will be available at the new location to provide one-on-one support for opening accounts and more complex services, such as mortgages, personal loans, auto loans, business services, investments and retirement planning. The new financial center will also feature two ATMs with 24-hour access.
BECU career opportunities are available now, from member consultants throughout Washington to corporate positions at its Tukwila headquarters. Candidates interested in joining BECU's team can apply online, or sign up to receive email alerts when a job matching their criteria is posted.
As member-owned, the credit union is focused on helping increase the financial health of its members and communities. Last year, BECU shared more than $3 million with its local communities through philanthropic giving and community programs, and returned $174 million to its members in the form of better rates and lower fees compared to bank averages.
