How do I reach someone in a Member Financial Center? Our branches do not have direct lines due to the in-person experience being conducted on a daily basis. Our Member Contact Center is able to access and provide full account and loan information over the phone. If you need to contact someone directly at the branch that you are currently working with, please call our main number, 800.822.0382, and ask for one of our member services representatives. Once you are speaking with a representative over the phone, ask to be transferred to the individual you are attempting to reach at the branch.

This service is only available once per year at no cost.
  • Requesting your credit report by mail. Complete and return the required request form.
Mail the completed form to:

What is shared branching? Participating credit unions offer their members the ability to access their accounts at other participating credit unions. The CO-OP Shared Branch ATM Network and CO-OP Shared Branch were created by credit unions that have joined forces to give their members the kind of financial convenience traditionally available only from big banks - all with the savings and personal service you expect from credit unions. Find other credit unions that participate in the CO-OP ATM, CO-OP Shared Branch or both.

How much can I withdraw from my account through shared branching? You are allowed to withdraw $1,000 cash per day through the shared branching network. You are allowed to withdraw $25,000 per day with official certified check.

If I am a shared branch member, what transactions are allowed at Truliant? We can conduct basic transactions on your shared branch account including official certified checks payable to account holder in a maximum amount of $25,000. The cash withdrawal maximum per day is $1,000. You can deposit cash and checks payable into your account. You will need to bring a legal photo ID and provide your member number for the shared branch account.

Why can't I do shared branching transactions at the drive-through? The shared branching CO-OP network limits drive-through interactions for better security for each credit union's members. This is for the account holder's security.
