What is Shared Branching?

CO-OP Shared Branch is a nationwide credit union cooperative program where credit union members can conduct basic teller transactions in person at any of the 5,600 participating branches nationwide. Currently, CO-OP Shared Branch is the nation’s second largest branch network enabling credit unions to compete with the largest financial institutions in providing physical access to convenient branches—a high priority for consumers in all demographic segments.

In addition to member convenience when traveling, shared branching offers credit unions revenue streams and operational efficiencies, and a key means of retaining members who move.
