Bank-by-Phone Service to be Eliminated July 31

Member usage of Bank-by-Phone has significantly declined in recent years, with less than 1% of our membership currently utilizing the service. The costs to provide this service have steadily increased, and overall usage does not warrant continuing to offer this service.

If you haven’t already, now is a perfect time to enroll in Online & Mobile Banking! These services will allow you to access and manage your accounts from your computer browser and mobile devices.

Something Beautiful is on the Horizon!

IU Credit Union is up, up and away with its first branded Hot Air Balloon, owned and operated by Bloomington Balloon Rides! Located at the Monroe County airport on South Kirby Road in Bloomington, Bloomington Balloon Rides offers several flight packages to choose from, if you decide to take an adventure of your own. Owner and pilot Andy Richardson is a native Hoosier, who recently relocated back to Indiana after spending seven years in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the balloon capital of the world. Andy also owns and operates one of the USA’s largest hot air balloon manufacturing companies, Adams Balloons, which is renowned for their special shapes.

IU Credit Union’s balloon stands at 10 stories tall, and we believe this is the largest IUCU icon that will ever be printed!

If you want breathtaking views and an unforgettable experience, check out their website.
