Habitat for Humanity East King County to be awarded $1,000 to support affordable housing
On Thursday, June 7th, BECU celebrated the grand opening of a new Neighborhood Financial Center (NFC) at 3710 Factoria Blvd SE, Suite E in Bellevue. The new location is located in Factoria Village near QFC.
Representatives from the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce were on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, which was followed by Megan Clark, manager of BECU’s Factoria location, presenting a check in the amount of $1,000 to Habitat for Humanity East King County in support of their affordable housing efforts.
The new 2,500 square foot location has five consultant desks, two ATMs with 24-hour access, and two Online Banking Kiosks to better serve members. In addition, members can make an appointment with an Investment Advisor to review their current retirement accounts as well as discuss long term goals. Members can use the location to establish accounts, apply for loans and perform financial transactions — including free ATM, online and telephone banking services, with staff assistance, if needed.
“Our new Factoria location was in response to the growing needs of our existing and new members in the area,” said Megan Clark, BECU’s Manager of the Factoria location. “Historically, BECU was open only to Boeing employees and their families. Now anyone in the state is eligible to join, and this new location will allow us to continue to grow within the Factoria community.”
As with BECU’s other Neighborhood Financial Centers, the new Factoria location will be staffed Monday thru Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, BECU is a not-for-profit credit union owned by the members. Profits are returned to the members in the form of better rates and fewer fees. With more than 750,000 members and more than $10.0 billion in assets, BECU is the largest credit union in Washington and one of the top five financial cooperatives in the country. BECU currently operates over 40 locations in the Puget Sound region. All Washington state residents are eligible to join.
