Drive it away, rates as low as 1.90% APR -
Sure there are lots of cars to look at, various makes and models... decisions, decisions. The good news, there is only one place to turn for financing when you buy your next vehicle, your Credit Union. Our rates are as low at 1.90% APR and if by chance you already purchased a vehicle and financed at a higher rate, you may qualify to refinance the balance with us. Call or visit the Credit Union for details. (Longer terms, up to 144 months may be available for certain titled vehicles such as boats, RV's or motor homes.)
* These annual percentage rates were in effect July 1, 2014 and are based on year of vehicle, or purpose of the loan, term and your credit history. All rates subject to change. Payment example: $25,000 borrowed for 60 months at 1.90% APR will have an approximate monthly payment of $437.10.

If you receive a phone call about your debit or credit cards, make sure it is on behalf of your Credit Union
We have had a few members call because they received an automated phone call saying "There is suspected fraud on your card and you need to confirm the transactions, but to do so you need to enter your entire account/card number."
When your Credit Union makes a phone call regarding your debit or credit card transactions the representative will always state they are calling on behalf of Pipefitters Steamfitters Credit Union and should NEVER ask for your entire card or share or checking account numbers.
If you are doubtful of a call, ask for their name and phone number and say you will call them back and then phone the Credit Union to confirm if there is an issue.
