    At Connex, we do charge fees for things like insufficient funds, stop payments and administrative things like requesting copies of statements, etc. We don’t have many maintenance fees, such as those charged for going below the minimum balance.

    We do offer many tips to help our members manage their accounts and avoid punitive, account-related fees. In fact, you could go your entire membership without ever incurring a fee! We’re never too busy to sit down with our members and go over these tips to help them save money.

    In addition to helping our members save money from fees, there are other great things credit unions have to offer its members like:
    – Exceptional member service and one-on-one attention. A member is not just a number.
    – Better rates on savings/deposit accounts and loans.
    – Convenience of shared branching where you can conduct Connex Credit Union transactions at more than 3,800 credit unions nationwide.
    – Access to ATMs, both in- and out-of-network. We are part of the Allpoint Surcharge-Free ATM network with access to over 35,000 nationwide. We also refund out-of-network ATM fees with Unbank Checking.
    – Local lending. No risky real estate loans here!
    – More invested in the community. We know and support our members who live in and around our branch locations.
