Your Credit Union is With You Wherever You Go With Shared Branching! You’ve just arrived at your vacation destination with your family and realize you forgot to make a loan payment before you left. No worries – because as a credit union member, you belong to a Shared Branch network of 175 locations statewide – nearly three times as many branches as any bank in Maine! Because credit unions are uniquely cooperative, they are able to band together to provide the second largest branch network of any financial institution in the nation after Wells Fargo. Whether you are just across town or on vacation far away, as a credit union member, you will have access to nearly 2,000 credit unions, or over 5,600 locations, thanks to the CO-OP’s Shared Branching network. With Shared Branching, members are able to make deposits, withdrawals, transfers, or loan payments at any participating credit union like it is their own. Even in today’s digital age, 44% still prefer to use a traditional branch. If you’re still wondering why you should use Shared Branching, here are five reasons to start. 1.

It’s convenient.
