"Today, we are excited to open the doors to the PSECU Financial Center. The PSECU Financial Center is the first location of its kind for PSECU. It's a hybrid model that is designed after the best of our physical locations on university and college campuses, while highlighting the electronic services that PSECU offers for member convenience," said Smith.
"PSECU and our members have always had a strong economic, financial and social commitment to the community. Our Financial Center is the culmination of those commitments reflected in the building design and usage," said Barb Bowker, PSECU's Vice President of Marketing. "We look forward to strengthening relationships with our current members in the region and invite potential members to stop in and see why for 82 years, PSECU has been a leader in innovation and technology-driven banking."
PSECU, headquartered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has over 400,000 members across the commonwealth already utilizing the technology-based model. This innovative method of banking has enabled PSECU to give back $30 million in "Relationship Rewards" to its members.
Opened in 1934, PSECU was founded by 22 ordinary people who made an extraordinary commitment to each other: To create a financial institution where pooled resources benefit all members. Today, we are a full-service credit union serving more than 400,000 members and have over $4 billion in assets. As a not-for-profit financial institution, our goal remains to help our members and their families achieve a better life.
