In 2016, more members chose UECU as their trusted financial partner and used the Credit Union’s savings and loan products. To thank you for your loyalty, we have distributed another Member Loyalty Bonus™^. On December 31, 2016, UECU paid almost $600,000 to members - bringing the grand total of member give-back to over $5.3 Million since the program began in 2011. While we can’t guarantee a bonus every year, we are pleased to issue another one for the sixth consecutive year.
Since UECU is a not-for-profit financial institution owned by its members, not a bank owned by stockholders, we are able to return profits back to YOU. As a member, you benefit from the Credit Union’s success. And, you have the ability to increase your bonus by using more of the Credit Union’s loans and savings products.
We calculate your bonus by taking the interest you earned on your savings accounts and paid on your loans during the calendar year, and multiply that by the bonus percentage (the 2016 bonus percentage was 3%). If you originated a mortgage with UECU in 2016, we also added another $100 to your year-end bonus. To find out the amount you received for your Member Loyalty Bonus™, check your December Member Statement or sign into Advantages Online™.
In addition to the Member Loyalty Bonus™ Program, UECU returns profit back to members all year long by offering:
