BECU Heads North to Open First Neighborhood Financial Center in Bellingham


Washington credit union, BECU, announced it will open a Neighborhood Financial Center this year in Bellingham, Washington. This will be BECU’s first financial center in Whatcom County, serving more than 7,500 members who live in the area.

“Joining the Bellingham community is in direct response to the growing needs of our BECU members in Whatcom County who are looking for easier access to their accounts, valuable products, and the high level of service credit unions are known for,” said Scott Strand, BECU’s Chief Operating Officer. “As a member-owned cooperative, our goal is to show everyone the benefits of being a credit union member and partner with others to improve the financial well-being of our communities.”

Located at the Lakeway Shopping Center on Lakeway Drive, the 2,800-square-foot financial center will feature BECU’s innovative “tellerless” layout, which empowers members to access their accounts in the ways most convenient to them. This includes ATM, online banking, and mobile banking. Member consultants will be available to provide one-on-one support for opening accounts and more complex services such as mortgages, personal loans, auto loans, business services, and investments.
