Both credit unions focus on commitment to the communities they serve; benefits WJC members with enhanced products and services
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Truliant Federal Credit Union announced today that WJC Federal Credit Union will be merged into Truliant in order to align the southwest Virginia-based credit union with a financially strong, leading financial institution.
The merger provides substantial benefits to WJC members, such as greater access to digital banking tools, more financial products and services, and an extensive ATM network. Truliant currently has two locations in southwest Virginia.
“We’re excited to welcome WJC members into the Truliant family. We celebrate the cooperative spirit and share the same commitment to our members and the respective communities we each have been serving for decades,” said Truliant President and CEO Todd Hall. “By working closely with WJC on a smooth transition, members will have options for easier account access, more services and improved technology.”
The merger expands Truliant’s membership to an additional five counties: Washington, Smyth, Grayson, Russell in Virginia and Johnson County in Tennessee. Founded in 1982 to serve employees of Columbus McKinnon, WJC serves the southwest Virginia market and has about 1,000 members. Truliant will transition WJC members and add WJC’s Damascus, Va. branch to its network in the first half of 2021.
The merger was approved by both credit union boards and by federal credit union regulators. No changes will occur for WJC members until account, service, and system integration is completed. Truliant is providing information to WJC members at Truliant.org/welcomewjc.
