Shared Branching – FAQ and More

Shared Branching

Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU (UKRFCU) serves the financial needs of its members in the Philadelphia area and across the country. In order to help all members enjoy the convenience of branches, the UKRFCU has joined Shared Branching – making nearly 5,000 branches across the country available for members to use!

What is Shared Branching?

Shared Branching is a network of credit unions across the country that allows you to conduct transactions at their branches just as if you were in a UKRFCU branch. The network is made up of nearly 5,000 branches nationwide.

How Does Shared Branching Work?

Using Shared Branching is as simple as performing a transaction at any UKRFCU branch.

  1. Locate a Shared Branch or call 888.748.3266
  2. Provide the full name of your credit union – Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU PA
  3. Provide your UKRFCU Account # 
  4. Provide Photo ID to the Shared Branch credit union  teller
  5. Perform your transaction just as if you were at Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU

Note: You will be entering a different credit union to perform your transaction. For example, you may enter an American Heritage FCU branch to perform your Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU transaction* (see “What Type of Transactions Can I Perform” below). It’s important for you to identify yourself as a member of the Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU PA in order to avoid confusion with Ukrainian Selfreliance MI FCU (Michigan), another member of the Shared Branching Network.

How Much Does Shared Branching Cost?

Shared Branching is completely FREE to members of Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU. Additional charges may apply for extra services, such as money orders or statement copies, similar to if you were at a UKRFCU branch.

What Type of Transactions Can I Perform?

At ANY Shared Branching location you can:

  • Get a copy of your account history
  • Make loan payments
  • Withdraw money
  • Transfer funds
  • Make deposits
  • Cash checks

You cannot apply for a loan, open a new account or add on additional Ukrainian Selfreliance FCU specific services. You must contact UKRFCU for these additional services by calling 215.725.4430 or log on to stop by any one of our branches.
