We’re Growing! 3Rivers to Acquire West End Bank.
We’re excited to begin the process of transitioning West End Bank to 3Rivers Federal Credit Union and welcome you as a member-owner of our not-for-profit cooperative!
With this conversion comes several changes, and we want to make sure you feel informed and confident about the updates that may happen with your accounts—every step of the way.
When West End Bank becomes 3Rivers Federal Credit Union, the same friendly faces will be able to serve you in more ways and with a continued commitment to serve our community. In order to enjoy the benefits of being a member-owner of 3Rivers, YOU MUST OPT IN* to have your accounts converted.
Over the course of the transition, we’ll be sending important information and updates to you via mail and email, and updating our website and social media pages with key dates, FAQs, and more.
Here, you will find several answers to frequently asked questions, as well as resources for helping you to understand the changes that are taking place and the steps you need to take to ensure this transition is as seamless as possible for you.
* We anticipate the completion of the transaction and system conversion to take place May 27 thru June 1. Dates noted may vary, as all dates are tentative and subject to change based on regulatory approval and customary closing conditions. Please continue to watch your mail, or visit online at www.westendbank.com/merger for more information and updates.
