Open Enrollment season is upon us. This is your annual opportunity to review benefits offered by your employer and choose those that meet the needs of you and your family.
Here at Harvard, open enrollment for 2019 begins October 31 and ends November 14, 2018. One benefit that the entire Harvard community is eligible for is membership in the credit union.
The credit union advantage: Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that exist solely to serve their members, not stockholders. Access to join is exclusive to the students, alumni, faculty, staff, and retirees of Harvard University, Harvard teaching hospitals and other affiliated organizations. As a community partner, your credit union membership is completely free, and you’re a member for life; even if you move or change employers.
Security: HUECU is insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000 - providing the same benefits of FDIC insurance for a bank account.
Better rates and lower fees: As is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, we exist solely to serve our members. That’s why we are able to offer better-than-bank rates on loans and deposits, with low or no fees to open or maintain accounts.
Financial wellness programs: Reducing your financial stress and empowering you to successfully manage your money is an integral part of who we are as an organization. All community members qualify to enroll in our free financial education seminars, workshops, and webinars.
Convenience and local personal service: All members, regardless of how much money they have, benefit from in-house servicing and local decision-making by our employees located in the heart of Harvard Square. You will have several convenient options for accessing yours accounts, including: Branch and ATM locations across Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville; Online and Mobile Banking; and, Shared Branching & free ATMs.
A trusted partner: We have been developing and offering trustworthy products that are easy to understand, easy to use and best suited to meet the Harvard community’s financial needs since 1939.
More than 50,000 members of the Harvard community trust HUECU for help through all stages of their financial lives. We'd love to meet you and learn more about how we can help you achieve your financial goals. Membership can be opened online or in-person at one of our convenient locations; during open enrollment, and beyond because we’re not a bank, we’re a benefit.
Already a member? Did you know, HUECU has a Member Referral Program? For a limited time, you can refer family members, eligible friends or coworkers to us, and if they become a member, we’ll both give you a $25 bonus. Start referring new members here.
