Yakima Valley Credit Union says Your Funds are Safe

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash-Yakima Valley Credit Union says your funds are safe.

Yakima Valley Credit Union says they are financially strong.  Their assets have increased to more than $240 million dollars this year.  And they serve more than 29,600 people.

They have been in the Yakima Valley for more than 70 years.  And they say their business has been flourishing because they set apart from other financial institutions.

"I think what sets a Credit Union from other financial institutions is that is it cooperative it is actually owned by it's members," says Mina Worthington, CEO of Yakima Valley Credit Union.

Supervisors say because members own the Credit Union, members are the ones voting and their best interest is put first.

Credit Union leaders plan to remain strong and to continue working in Yakima for many years to come.
