WSECU’s new Bellevue branch, slated to open mid-September, will be located downtown in the Columbia West building. As a full-service branch, it will offer a variety of services including new accounts, loans, basic transactions, real estate, investment services by appointment, and a 24/7 ATM. This location also will feature shared branching capabilities, allowing members from other credit unions the opportunity to use WSECU for basic transactions.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be joining the Bellevue community,” said Ann Flannigan, vice president of public relations. “Even as transactions move online, branches are an important way we connect with members and serve a community. People want to know they are banking with a local institution and have a place they can go to when they have questions or issues. We’re bringing a 60-year track record of incredible member service to Bellevue.”

With WSECU’s membership growth and Bellevue’s flourishing downtown, it seemed like a perfect match, and Flannigan said WSECU’s commitment to community will be a good fit for the area as well.

The new branch is set to open to the public September 12, 2017. The location will be a 3,000-square-foot space managed by Naomi Mahaffey. Membership is open to all Washington state residents.
