June 19th, 2017 by Doree

BECU will open a Neighborhood Financial Center at 101 NW 85th St., in the new Janus Apartments building across the street from Fred Meyer.

The credit union financial center will be more than 3,200 square feet. It is expected to open late this year.

As with BECU’s other Neighborhood Financial Centers, the new Greenwood location will rely on an innovative “tellerless” layout, which empowers members to access their accounts in ways most convenient for them, including ATM, online banking and mobile banking. Member consultants will be available at the new location to provide one-on-one support for opening accounts and more complex services, such as mortgages, personal loans, auto loans, business services, investments and retirement planning. The new financial center will also feature two ATMs with 24-hour access.
