Tiered Services

We believe in rewarding you for establishing a solid business relationship with the credit union. That's why we are offering special tiered benefits to our members!

Your tier level is determined by services and balances at the end of the previous month. The more services you use, the more it pays! If you do financial business elsewhere, you will get more benefits if you transfer your accounts to Western Districts Members Credit Union. If you have any questions concerning what tier you are in, contact the credit union.

Basic Tier: 0 - 400 points

Silver Tier: 401 - 650 points

Gold Tier: 651 - 950 points

Platinum Tier: 951+ points
