Let's Celebrate Kids!

It’s National Credit Union Youth Month, and CU1 is excited to celebrate our littlest members. In each of our statewide branches, children will find coloring sheets and goodies to grab, specially decorated teller stations (April 16-20), and employees on hand to help your child open their very first savings account.

In addition to kid-friendly activities, Credit Union 1 will also be raising funds for Best Beginnings in April. This local organization’s mission is to mobilize people and resources to ensure that all Alaskan children begin school ready to succeed. By donating to this worthy cause, you’ll help provide a brighter future for Alaskan youth! Thank you for your support.

FREE Tax Filing Assistance

With tax season upon us, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of paperwork. Need some help wading through? CU1 is happy to point you toward free tax assistance opportunities!*

  • AARP
    Starting in February, visit our Mountain View Branch in Anchorage each Wednesday and Friday from 11am-3pm for personalized help with tax preparation. AARP will complete and e-file taxes in our branch Community Room, which could speed up your income tax turnaround! If you’re interested in AARP tax assistance, it’s best to arrive early to snag a spot on their sign-up sheet. In the afternoon, available slots may fill by 1-2pm.
  • United Way of Anchorage
    Not able to make it to Mountain View? United Way is offering other tax filing opportunities around Anchorage, with various days and times to meet your schedule. View a calendar here and here!

For easy access to your CU1 tax documents, simply sign in to Online Access. We keep your records stored in one tidy place under the Accounts widget > Tax Information tab, so you have this info on hand when needed. With hassle-free access to organized records and local help from AARP and United Way, tax season is almost smile-worthy! Almost.  

*Free tax filing is based upon income bracket. Refer to this website for additional details.

Supporting Small Businesses

At Credit Union 1, we’re proud to support Alaskan businesses! If you’re dreaming of small business ownership, we’d like to share an upcoming change to our documentation requirements. This federally required change, which takes effect on May 11, 2018, will aid the government in fighting fraud and other financially-related crimes.

    • In the future, if you open a business account for a legal entity covered under this new regulation, we will ask you for identifying information (such as your name, address, date of birth and social security number) as well as identification documentation (such as your state ID, driver’s license or passport).
    • This info will be gathered for each individual that has 25% or more Beneficial Ownership in the legal entity, along with one individual that has significant managerial control (such as a CEO, President, CFO, VP, etc.).
    • Additionally, we’ll ask that you personally certify that this information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge.

Already one of our valued CU1 business owners? At this time, we likely won’t need to collect this information if your business account was established with us prior to 2018. However, we may be required to collect certain info from you on a case-by-case basis in accordance with this new federal regulation. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

The #CU1LUV Community Fund

CU1 is excited to announce the launch of our new #CU1LUV Community Fund! This special fund serves as a way for Alaskans whose food, shelter or health is at risk to receive direct assistance from our credit union through a nonprofit organization.

The #CU1LUV Community Fund is supported by funds that Credit Union 1 donates on behalf of members who finance loans with us. For every consumer loan, we’ll donate $1 to this fund. For every real estate loan, we’ll donate $10. Now, when you finance a CU1 loan toward your own life goals – or refinance an existing loan to Credit Union 1 – you’re making a much larger impact on the lives of those around you. That’s #CU1LUV at work, and we’re grateful for your support!

These separate 1099-INTs will detail the specific dividend amount earned by each CU1 account.
