Important Information About Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you:
When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license/ State identification or other identifying objects.
If you are not present at the time of opening, your signature will need to be notarized and you will need to provide copies of your drivers license/ State identification and employee badge.

Why Choose a Credit Union Over a Bank?
When you join a credit union, you become a partner in a not-for-profit financial cooperative. Earnings are returned to members in the form of higher dividends on savings, lower loan rates, and expanded services.
The benefits that credit unions provide to both members and others amounted to an estimated $9.9 billion in 2014. Over the past eight years credit union benefits have totaled an estimated $97.1 billion!
On average, credit unions pay higher rates on savings and charge lower rates on loans than banks and other financial providers, which means you keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
In a troubled economy, employees rely on you and your company to provide a benefits package that adds value to their lives. Consider offering your employees a valuable benefit at absolutely no cost to you: membership in Associated Healthcare Credit Union (AHCU).
It's Easy to Get Started!
You can order forms from AHCU to include in your benefits package handouts, including our Enrollment Kit.
