Keep up with happenings at IU Credit Union with In Your Interest, our quarterly member newsletter.
We're pleased to introduce the added security of chip technology to your IU Credit Union Debit MasterCard!
The chip contains your card number, name, and other account information. There is no other personal information stored on the chip. With the added security in the chip, every transaction you make is unique, which makes it extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited.
When you receive your new re-issued card, the number and PIN will remain the same while the expiration and 3-digit code (CVC) will be updated. You will still be able to make online transactions and since your chip card will still have the usual magnetic stripe on the back, you can continue using your card while merchants are transitioning to new chip card terminals.
For more information on how to use the new terminals and see our Frequently Asked Questions, click here.
If you missed our last Shred Day in July, you have another chance to safely shred your confidential papers. On November 14th from 10:30-noon at our Winslow branch, we will be conducting the final Shred Day of the year.
We will once again be partnering with American Shredding and Confidential Document Destruction who will shred up to two brown grocery bags of documents with your donation of non-perishable food items or new unwrapped children's toy. These items will be donated to Middle Way House–which seeks to end violence in the lives of women and children through community activities and programs aimed at achieving individual and social change.
Not sure what to keep and what to shred? Check out our Summer In Your Interest here for a chart to help you decide.

After 6 years of airing our current jingle, we decided it was time for an update. We have really enjoyed hearing the crowd at Assembly Hall sing along to, “We started a credit union, and created a community!” during IU Basketball games. We have also heard reports of classrooms and kids on school buses singing our jingle from beginning to end, so we wanted to stay true to the original.
To create more of a community feel, we were looking for a singing group. Who could be better than the professional a cappella group, originating from the IU Bloomington campus—Straight No Chaser? We are very pleased to announce that they have recorded the latest version of our jingle!
If you’re already a fan or haven’t had a chance to hear them yet, catch them in concert at the IU Auditorium on December 17—Details about how to enter to Win a Family Four Pack of Tickets to their show is included in this issue of In Your Interest!

On October 15, 2015, credit unions around the world will celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day).
Since 1948, on the third Thursday of every October, credit unions have celebrated a simple but radical idea—that by working together, people can improve their financial well-being. “People helping people,” this year’s ICU Day theme, is the foundational philosophy of the credit union movement, going back to the very beginning.
In 1850s Germany, a group of weary workers formed the world’s first credit union. Suffering through an economic downturn and tired of loan sharks exploiting them, they banded together to provide affordable credit to each other. Not-for-profit and governed by and for the people who created them, credit unions not only gave working-class people a way to break a cycle of debt that had bled them of any financial gains. It showed them, for the first time, a path to prosperity.
It’s no wonder then that when economic times are hard, credit unions flourish. Credit union membership swelled during the Great Depression and again during the recent Great Recession. Today, there are more than 200 million credit union members worldwide—100 million of them in the United States.
The World Council of Credit Unions, supported by credit unions in the U.S., works to develop credit unions around the world because they believe that every person deserves access to affordable, reliable financial services. As not-for-profit financial cooperatives, credit unions are governed by their members—one member, one vote. In many countries, credit unions offer people their first true taste of democracy.
"Credit unions must do their part. We must share our knowledge, our experience, and our dreams," World Council Board Chairman Grzegorz Bierecki said earlier this year. "It is the duty of free people to support freedom."
At its most basic level, a credit union is people pooling their money to provide each other with affordable loans—a credit union is literally people helping people. This is why we celebrate ICU Day at IU Credit Union. This simple idea empowers people, wherever they are in the world or life, to take control of their own financial future.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year—and also the coldest! The IU Credit Union has once again set up donation boxes for the Salvation Army’s Coats for Kids and Those in Need clothing drive. Drop off gently-used coats, scarves, hats and mittens at any of our Bloomington locations from now through mid-November to help ensure a warm holiday season for all.
The IU Credit Union is pleased to welcome Santiago Sotomayor as our new Ellettsville Branch Manager. Santiago has served as a Licensed Relationship Banker at Chase Bank in Arizona where he was ranked in the top 10% of relationship bankers in the Southwest region. Most recently, he was Assistant Branch Manager at Old National Bank in Bloomington. He has a B.S. in Global Business Management from the University of Phoenix. Earlier in his career, Santiago worked for the Bloomington YMCA for nine years and he looks forward to working in a non-profit setting again.
