“Providing our membership with quality service and competitive financial choices to help ensure their long term financial health” is what Allegius Credit Union is all about.

The essence of Allegius Credit Union is its membership, family legacy, and community outreach. The credit union has a long history of supporting its members, dating back to 1966, where Bethlehem Employees Federal Credit Union began with 25 charter members from the Bethlehem Steel plant in Burns Harbor. Over the last 50 years, the credit union has grown, opened itself to more members, and evolved into what is now Allegius Credit Union.

Members have the ability to save money with a diversity of savings products, gain rewards with Kasasa Checking accounts, affordably drive a vehicle of their choice with an auto loan, comfortably live in their home with a mortgage, improve their home with a convenient home equity loan, enjoy life experiences with a VISA credit card, and so much more.

A detailed example of what makes Allegius Credit Union so special is the Kasasa Cash and Cash Back checking accounts where members are highly rewarded for many of the banking activities they are already doing such as using their debit card, logging into online banking and enrolling for e-statements. Compare your current checking account to Allegius’ Kasasa checking accounts at https://www.allegius.org/accounts/personal-checking/compare-accounts.html.

Allegius also offers members many rewarding services such as online and mobile banking, bill pay, e-statements, shared branch locations, and surcharge-free ATMs. There’s even a “Time to Travel Club” that offers fun and memorable one and multiple day trips for members ages 21 and over. The destinations vary from Indiana area based to New Mexico to Canada to the Midwest.

Allegius partners with organizations who can work with members to achieve financial health. From financial planning and investments to home/auto/life insurances to identity theft recovery services, there are many ways members can plan and prepare for a bright financial future.
