WSECU, the state’s eighth largest Washington-based financial institution, is growing its presence in the central Puget Sound area. The credit union will open two new branches this fall: one in Puyallup in September and another in Federal Way in November.
The new locations will increase WSECU’s branch network to 20. WSECU is the only credit union in Washington with a statewide footprint of retail outlets.
“WSECU is in a period of strong, steady growth and we’re excited to be expanding in Pierce and south King Counties,” said Ann Flannigan, WSECU’s Vice President of Public Relations. “More and more, consumers are voting with their values, in addition to their dollars. That means we’ve welcomed a lot of new members simply by continuing to do what we do best: delivering incredible service that recognizes each member as an individual, not a number, and giving back significantly in the communities we serve.”
WSECU’s new Puyallup Branch will be located in the South Hill area at 17526 Meridian Ave. E. The Puyallup Branch will open Sept. 21 with a modern retail center and 3.5 employees. The branch will be full service, with open hours of Mon-Fri. 9:00am to 5:00pm. The new Federal Way Branch is slated to open in early November and will be known as WSECU’s Dash Point location for its proximity to this area near northeast Tacoma. The address is 34024 Hoyt Rd. in Federal Way.
“In 2013, WSECU opened its doors to serve all residents in Washington State, not just those with a connection to public service,” Flannigan added. “Just through word of mouth our new member growth has been booming. People notice the things we’re doing in the community and they hear from friends and family how well members are treated. They like the concept of joining an organization with a mission.”
Flannigan noted that the credit union’s roots in public service remain at the core of WSECU’s identity, many of whom live or work in the Puyallup and Federal Way areas.
In 2016, WSECU expects to add again to its branch network with one or two new locations.
Founded by a handful of state employees in 1957, WSECU has grown to serve all residents in Washington State, with a special focus on those who share the values of giving back to the community through employment, service, volunteering and donations. WSECU meets members’ needs at its 20 branches, by phone and through the credit union’s digital channels. To learn more, visit www.wsecu.org.
