Denali Alaskan joins network of credit unions

Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union has joined a cooperative that allows shared services at credit unions in 32 states and three countries.

Keith Fernandez, marketing director of the Anchorage-based credit union, said members who are traveling or relocating are now able to access their credit union accounts at any of the more than 700 shared branches nationwide and in Japan, Korea and Guam.

Canada will be added in the near future, Fernandez said.

Services include deposits and withdrawals, loan payments, advances and copies of statements, Fernandez said.

"In the past, if you were on vacation and needed to cash a check you needed lots of luck,’’ Fernandez said. With the credit union service, known as the Financial Services Center Cooperative, it’s like having hundreds of Denali Alaskan branches across the country, he said.

A complete list of services and cooperating credit unions is available at Denali Alaskan branches in Anchorage, Juneau and Fairbanks.

Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union is the third-largest credit union in the state, with about 35,000 members and more than $230 million in assets.
