We start with you!

What it means to be a part of the Unison Family The Schuh’s were building both a new business and family when they came to Unison Credit Union. Emily and Jon each belonged to other credit unions, but wanted to find one that was convenient and fit their needs without an exorbitant amount of “fees and hoops to jump through.”

Text banking is our newest service that

Jon stopped in the Kaukauna South branch and met with one of Unison’s Financial Services Representatives. “Erika [Arnoldussen] made opening an account with Unison feel personal, comfortable and a ton of fun to work with,” he said. That was just the beginning.

allows you to request and receive basic account information via text message. It is as secure as mobile or online banking. No detailed personal information is sent and you view accounts by nicknames, not account numbers, set by you. You can also enroll in eAlerts and receive notices via text regarding account balances, electronic deposits, withdrawals or when a payment is due. To learn more about Text Banking, check out our website, log in to your It’s Me 247 online banking account or stop in and talk with one of our helpful Financial Services Representatives.

As the Schuh family and business grew, so did their need for more products and services. Emily said that throughout the years Unison “has helped us in so many

different areas of our life; including extra money for our wedding, our vehicles and of course helping Jon’s business grow.” One of Emily’s favorite credit union services, to keep all the business and personal finances organized, is It’s Me 247 online banking. She and Jon use it consistently throughout the day and do not know where they would be without it! The couple recently expanded IJ’s Finish Experience and opened a flooring and remodeling store, Schuh~Less Flooring and Remodeling, LLC, located on the west side of Appleton. They offer a variety of flooring products as well as full kitchen and bath remodeling. When Emily and Jon aren’t working, they enjoy spending time out in Little Chute and Kaukauna. They love meeting new people, especially other members of the Unison family. Thank you, Schuh’s, for choosing Unison!
