Account Getting Low?

Shared Branches

JHFCU wanted to provide access outside our traditional Baltimore footprint, so we’ve teamed up with credit unions across the nation. Through Shared Branching you have access to more than 50,000 convenient locations to perform transactions just as if you were at a JHFCU branch.

Whether you are at work, home, or your favorite travel destination, account access is nearby! Anywhere you see the CO-OP logo you can conduct a range of transactions, which are posted immediately to your account, including:

  • Deposits*
  • Withdrawals
  • Loan Payments**
  • Loan Advances

Many locations also offer:

  • Transfers between sub-accounts
  • VISA and/or MasterCard cash advances
  • Check withdrawals
  • Fax services and copies
  • Traveler’s checks
  • Notary services

When you visit a shared branch you will need to bring:

  • Your JHFCU account number
  • A valid government-issued photo identification, i.e., State Driver’s license, U.S. Passport

For a complete list of participating credit unions, listed by name, zip code or state, please visit our Branch Locator.

You'll be notified automatically by email that we’ve received your check deposit. Regular holds apply, and check deposits go through a quality control verification process, to ensure they can clear. Keep your check(s) for two weeks just in case it’s needed for verification. After that, they should be destroyed.
