Learn more about Shared Branching

Shared branching is a cooperative network of credit unions, including SLFCU, that have joined together and created shared service centers across the country.  By sharing facilities, SLFCU can offer greater convenience for you to access your accounts at many locations just as if you were at your home branch. Use the locator linked at the top of this page to find shared branching locations.

Members can enter any shared service center and conduct a range of transaction services, such as:

  • Cash checks
  • Make deposits and withdrawals
  • Make loan payments
  • Make transfers between accounts
  • Purchase Money Orders, Travelers Checks and Official Checks
  • Obtain cash advances and balance inquiries

To take advantage of this service, when you enter a shared branch you only need to bring:

  • Your home credit union's name 
  • Your account number
  • Photo identification
