"Westforce Credit Union has helped me in the past years with getting assets and been very good helping and listening to me through my path in life. Will be with them for a long time."
"I have been a member of Westforce since 1997. I have always had amazing customer service from Betty, Kath and Paea.
When we moved to Avondale the wonderful service continued with Vincent, Linda, Margaret and all the newbies. They are always informative of products and services the bank offers.
Its good to have member service officers informing us of upcoming events and delivering the best customer service banks offer."

Benefits of Credit Unions – How are they different?
Credit unions are member-owned, not-for-profit cooperatives. They exist to serve the needs of their members and offer the same types of products and services you would find at a bank. All credit unions and banks have one thing in common: they use the deposit balances of their members/customers to make loans
Members vs. Customers
At Credit Unions, each member is an owner of the credit union. Regardless of how much money they have on deposit, each member has one vote in electing board members.
Bank’s customers have no ownership interest in their bank and are not able to elect their board members.
Not-For-Profit vs. For Profit
Being not-for-profit, credit unions’ earnings are paid back to members; they receive low loan fees and rates.
Banks, being for-profit corporations, pay earnings to shareholders.
Credit Union Board are members of the credit union, and are elected by the membership.
Banks’ board members are paid, may not be a customer of the bank, and are elected by stockholders.
We believe that we have a responsibility to give back to the neighborhoods we belong to.
We offer sponsorship opportunities to individuals or groups who are making a difference in their neighborhoods through sport, education, charity and environmental programs.
We organize local events on a regular basis with the goal to create smiles in our member's faces. Follow us on Social Media to stay in touch and not miss out on them!
