Thank you for entrusting Northern Credit Union with your banking needs. We value you as a member-owner and are honored to provide you with the financial solutions and convenient services you need to manage your busy life.

To provide you, our valued member-owner, the best possible service and banking solutions we’ve made the difficult decision to delay the scheduled enhancements to our checking accounts until further notice. We’re doing so to address issues revealed during the testing phase and add additional rewards. Originally the enhancements were slated to occur on September 1, 2019. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by this decision.

While we’ve delayed most enhancements, we’re increasing the first tier of Premium Choice Checking to include 2.26% APY up to $35,000 instead of the current $25,000 as planned. This increase will start September 1, 2019, for posting on October 1, 2019.

We’ll update you with a revised time frame for these enhancements once we have a solid, trusted, and vetted foundation for these accounts. We’re hopeful for a November 1 effective date but are hesitant to commit until we have added reassurance from our programming partners. We want these enhancements to have a smooth transition. This will also give you more time to choose which checking account is right for you, change your rewards and banking behaviors.

If your current checking account doesn’t work for your banking needs, and you want to switch, you can at any time. Review our updated product comparison chart to see which checking account is best for you. With our revised checking accounts, you’ll be able to choose the best reward for your lifestyle including cashback, ATM fee refunds, and best-in-market dividends.

Here are two helpful How-To videos for changing your reward type and/or your checking account (share) type.
