Five CUs offer National Guard no-fee ATM access
RALEIGH, N.C. (2/4/10)--Four credit unions with military ties have signed bilateral agreements with State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU), Raleigh, N.C., to help ensure North Carolina National Guard personnel have access to no-surcharge Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) worldwide. SECU signed agreements with Fort Bragg FCU, Fayetteville, N.C.; Marine FCU, Jacksonville, N.C; Navy FCU, Vienna, Va.; and Pentagon FCU, Alexandria, Va., that will allow guardsmen to use more than 1,600 no-surcharge ATMs. Whether serving in Guam, Japan, or stateside in locations such as Quantico, Va., or Fort Bragg, N.C., guardsmen will save as much as $3 per ATM transaction. The move is part of SECU’s effort to assist military personnel and thank them for their continuous efforts to serve the country. Military members at all five credit unions also will have surcharge-free access to all of SECU’s Cash Points ATM network, with more than 1,000 ATM locations in North Carolina. “It’s an excellent opportunity for the members of both credit unions to have increased access to surcharge-free ATMs in the state of North Carolina,” said David G. Elliott, president/CEO of Fort Bragg FCU. “This is a perfect example of the cooperative spirit of credit unions in North Carolina.” “Our credit union has always been impressed with the military-focused U.S. credit unions and the benefits they offer to their members,” said Jim Blaine, SECU president. “These partnerships expand what SECU can do as a credit union to also enhance the benefits afforded to the 12,000 North Carolina National Guard soldiers and airmen in North Carolina.”
