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.
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!*
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.
All branches and our Member Service Center will be closed:
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.
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!
If you’ve ever felt like banks have their values backwards or like your credit union should stay local and loyal, then rest assured that you’re on the right path with Credit Union 1. We live each and every day with the mission to lead change, uplift others and value people – and we achieve this goal in a wide variety of ways.
In April, share the love with us and receive a #CU1LUV PopSocket! Visit cu1.org/LuvStory for details.
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!
Wondering if your CU1 account will receive a 1099-INT form? If the total amount of CU1 dividends associated with your social security number exceeds $10, you’ll receive a 1099-INT for each account on which you are owner or joint owner. These separate 1099-INTs will detail the specific dividend amount earned by each CU1 account.
If you are a paper statement user, your 1099-INT(s) will arrive by mail. If you make use of handy CU1 e-Statements, these forms can be accessed by clicking the Accounts widget in Online Access, selecting a specific account, and then clicking the Statements tab.
Are you a CU1 real estate member? Tax documents for real estate may arrive by mail instead, from our real estate servicing partner, Cenlar.
