Welcome to Uncommon

Benefits of Membership

As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, Northwest Community Credit Union is member-owned and managed – each person on our all-volunteer board is a member, as is every one of our employees. What does this mean to you?

  • We measure our success through member satisfaction, not profits.
  • Earnings return to members in the form of better rates and fewer fees.
  • We are deeply invested in our communities and their well-being.
  • Financial statements are transparent and shared monthly.

Here's another perk: exclusive discounts for members using our NWCU Benefits App

As a credit union, we offer everything a bank does and much more.

Joining is Easy

You can become a member:

  • by visiting one of our branches
  • over the phone at (800) 452-9515
