    January 10, 2019 - Utilities Employees Credit Union


      Wyomissing, PA, January 11, 2019 – Since 1934, UECU has been committed to America’s utility and energy employees, providing competitive rates, rebates, and rewards that help individuals and families reach their financial goals. In 2018, members received savings rates significantly higher than the national average. Those looking to borrow, saved thousands of dollars with UECU’s car-buying service, first-time homebuyer program, student loan solutions, and the Visa® PowerCard™.  Members also received reward points on their debit and credit card purchases which they redeemed for cash back, loan rate discounts, and gift cards.
