Chippewa Eagle Federal Credit Union

“Our Credit Union has been processing on CU*BASE since we began as a start-up credit union in January, 2011. Without a doubt, the Starting A Credit Union program offered by CU*Answers has played a significant role in helping our credit union gain an initial foothold within our community. It has allowed us to provide an array of services at literally a fraction of the cost than had we gone a traditional route. Interestingly, when developing our original business plan, one of our biggest challenges was to convince the regulator’s that the projected start-up offering for our credit union, and especially for the initial 2-year period, was fully documented and utilized by others! 

Today, in less than 1.5 years since our opening, we are already serving nearly 1,400 members, and exceed $2.5 million in assets.Our members are utilizing a variety of self-service products, including Online Banking and e-Statements, and are completing over 11,500 EFT transactions monthly!  Certainly, we are very appreciative to CU*Answers for the deep level of financial participation, on-going education/ training and networking support they continue to provide to our credit union.”
