UCU Has Earned the AARP BankSafe Seal

April 2024

We’re thrilled to share that we have earned AARP’s BankSafe Trained Seal in recognition of our unwavering dedication to protecting our elder members from financial exploitation. The BankSafe designation is earned after over 80% of an organization’s frontline staff completes AARP’s comprehensive BankSafe training.

Jilenne Gunther, National Director of AARP’s BankSafe Initiative, is quoted in AARP’s official press release saying, “These financial organizations continue to take meaningful steps to ensure their staff have the tools, skills and confidence to spot and stop financial exploitation before money ever leaves an account.”

At UCU, we believe that every member deserves to age with dignity and financial security. That’s why our team has invested the time into comprehensive BankSafe training which is designed to help identify warning signs of elder abuse and exploitation in order to protect our members’ financial well-being.

As proud members of our communities, we understand the trust that UCU members place in us. Receiving the BankSafe designation is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the entire frontline team at UCU, and it’s a promise to continue prioritizing the well-being of our members, especially our at-risk members.

We are proud to be BankSafe Trained and will proudly display the AARP BankSafe Trained Seal!
