That’s correct.  FORUM has coin counting machines at 10 of our 12 central Indiana branch locations.  FORUM members, there is no cost!  So all that coin you saved is all yours.  But what if you are not a FORUM member?  There is a minimal charge or become a FORUM member!  We would love to explain why you should move all your accounts to FORUM.  Save up that change!

Over the past few months, we have communicated several changes that were made to better serve you, the members of FORUM Credit Union.  A few of those changes are, extended branch lobby hours, the ability to deposit checks from a mobile phone, and easier access to reach a live person when calling into FORUM CU.  Those changes were made because you said you wanted us to be more convenient.

In addition to hearing what we can do to better serve you, we want to know what you love about FORUM CU.  FORUM CU members consistently leave comments on surveys explaining how much they love FORUM Credit Union, and they regularly point out specific employees that have provided great service to them in the past.  Below is a few of the comments we received last month.
