Shared Branches Expand In NJ
Three more New Jersey credit unions have signed up for shared branches in this state. People's First Choice FCU, Tri-Linc FCU and United Teletech FCU have joined three other recent additions, CUMCO FCU, First Jersey FCU and North Jersey FCU, in participating in shared branches.
New Jersey currently has 22 shared branches; the new additions will bring the total to 27 in the first quarter of 2004. The branches are operated as part of the Credit Union Service Centers (CUSC) network. Separately, the New Jersey league is in the process of developing marketing materials for use in educating members about shared branches.
