Pryor Community Donation

As a sponsor of the Pryor Invitational Tournament, Red Crown Credit Union gave back to the Pryor community by donating the 2018 Pryor Invitational Tournament shirt proceeds to Blue Star Mothers and Saving Whiskers and Tails of Pryor.

Blue Star Mothers of Pryor is an organization of mothers who have children serving in the military or who are veterans. Their mission is to provide care packages to active troops.

Saving Whiskers and Tails of Pryor rescues abused and abandoned animals. Their main mission is to give animals a safe place to live through adoption.

As a company, we strive to continually give back to our community. With the purchases of t-shirt sales we were able to donate $500 to each organization.

Best Credit Unions To Work For 2017

Red Crown Credit Union has been named one of the 2017 Best Credit Unions to Work For in the United States. Credit Union Journal has partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees.

This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best credit unions. The list is made up of 45 credit unions. The full Best Credit Unions to Work For in the United States list is featured in the September issue of Credit Union Journal.

To be considered for participation, credit unions had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 25 employees working in the U.S.
  • Be in business a minimum of one year
  • Be in one of the following categories based upon asset size: Over $1 billion, $500M-$1B, $200M-$500M or Under $200M

Determining the Best Credit Unions to Work For in the United States involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating credit union’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the best credit unions and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.

Red Crown was ranked 30th out of the 45 credit unions chosen for this honor. A few of the reasons employees enjoy working at Red Crown is:

– Every employees birthday gift is a paid day off
– Employees are eligible to begin contributing to their 401(k) imminently when hired.
– Employees celebrate a themed Spirit Day every quarter
– Employees are supported to give back to their community causes
– Employees are chosen to be a part of the Red Crown Innovation team
– Employees make treats for other employees birthdays, anniversaries and showers

ACH Changes

ACH From Red Crown Credit Union

Effective September 15, 2017, ACH debits and credits will have the ability to post on the same day they are created. This affects all institutions, not just Red Crown Credit Union.

What does this mean to you?

Going forward, ACH items and paper checks will post as they are presented to Red Crown Credit Union. These changes mean that electronic credits and debits (including checks that you issue which are subsequently processed as electronic debits), may be eligible for processing on the same day that they are authorized by you. This results in a faster payment system, which has great benefit when you are receiving a payment, but also means that payments you make may clear your account sooner than they have before.

It is important to make sure that funds are available in your account before you make in-person, online, or via telephone payments to avoid incurring NSF or Overdraft fees. Previously, ACH transactions could have taken 1-2 days to process; now, the same transactions may post the same-day on which you authorize them.

Red Crown Credit Union offers our members several easy-to-use tools to help manage your account(s) and check your balances, such as:

• Online Banking
• Mobile Banking
• Account Alerts
