DALLAS and MADISON, Wis. (2/22/13)--MoneyGram and CUNA Strategic Services will commemorate their 40-year relationship of working together to provide credit unions nationwide with payment services during next week's Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference, Feb. 24-28.
"Our 40-year relationship is a testament to MoneyGram's commitment to providing affordable and convenient payment services to credit unions and their members," said Wes Millar, CSS senior vice president.
As the unbanked and underbanked population grows, many U.S. consumers seek the safety of ownership unique to credit union membership and the customized services common to membership-only organizations.
"To have a successful and consistent 40-year working relationship with one organization is not a common occurrence today," said Rex Northern, MoneyGram vice president for financial institutions. "MoneyGram and CSS are among the few businesses that can proudly promote a long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship. Our consistent pricing and reliable product offerings are benefits that credit unions have enjoyed for 40 years. Thousands of credit unions use our services because we bring their members the services they want, and we look forward to continuing the relationship."
MoneyGram provided credit unions with free educational webinars on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's rules on remittance transfers, Millar noted.
MoneyGram will be among the CSS providers showcased on the main aisle in the GAC Exhibit Hall. MoneyGram will feature its full suite of payment solutions that credit unions can provide their members. MoneyGram's booth is No. 354.
