Default What's your favorite local credit union?

I'm a long-time Navy Federal member but I don't think they have any branches in the Portland area.

thanks

After 23 years at US Bank, last August I switched to Rivermark Credit Union. They have a branch a couple of blocks from me. I really like them.

Several family members are happy with Oregonians CU. I bank with IQ CU up in Vancouver (due to my job) and I really like it.

First Tech, but you have to be a resident of Washington County.

A full list of Credit Unions based in Portland, Oregon is here: Portland, Oregon Credit Unions

It looks like a lot of them are specialized though, so I'm not sure how much use this list will be of use to you.

You don't have to be a resident of Washington County although they are headquartered there (they also have branches as Microsoft & Virginia Mason in Seattle metro). First Tech merged with the leading CU in the Silicon Valley last year. They are a member of the CU ATM network, it has been years since one.

If you don't need a local atm I recommend the Pentagon CU, they have fantastic mortgage & loan programs.

The extensively detailed PDF linked at the bottom of this page...

http://oregonbankslocal.org/resources/research/

...will tell you tons about the various banking options available across Oregon. The focus of the site is "locavore" financial behavior, but the data is super helpful to anyone choosing a bank in Oregon for any set of personal reasons so I encourage everyone to check it out.

I share branch bank with Unitus Credit Union and I like them, but they are a small credit union. I know a number of people that use OnPoint Credit Union, I think that is the name of it, and I have heard good things about them too.

I have been an OnPoint (formerly Portland Teachers) member for over 20 years and have always been happy with them.

You don't have to give up Navy Federal if it is part of the Credit Union Co-op. You can do all of the transactions at one of the other CU's in the network and us Co-op ATMs. It's very handy.
