PORTLAND, Ore. – Unitus Community CU pledged yesterday to continue offering free checking and free online services such as bill pay even as many banks are beginning to charge fees for the once-free services.

“Free checking and free online bill pay are important benefits to our members and we plan to continue both regardless of other changes in the marketplace,” said Patricia Smith, president of the $840 million credit union.

“People may not know that most of them can become members of credit unions if they live or work in any of the counties serviced by the credit union,” said Smith, of threats by banks to end free services.
