Best Credit Union for Healthcare Workers in Kansas

Service lies at the center of everything Credit Union of America does. It’s why we recognize the critical role that healthcare workers play in caring for the sick and vulnerable and improving the quality of life in our communities.

To make life a little easier for our hard-working nurses, therapists, physician assistants, home care technicians, and others, we offer a range of special benefits just for those who choose to spend their time and energy serving others.

If you’re a healthcare professional in central Kansas, read on to learn more about the special benefits you qualify for as a Credit Union of America member, as well as the many additional benefits you earn simply for being part of the communities we were created to serve.

Healthy Choices: CUA Rewards Community Carers

Credit Union of America was started to help public school teachers access better financial resources. In 1935, John Michener, a science teacher at Wichita East High School, convinced a group of his fellow educators to pool their resources to help a fellow teacher secure a loan.

This simple act of helping someone inspired Michener to start a credit union to help teachers achieve their financial goals.

In 1974, the credit cooperative that Michener founded became Credit Union of America (CUA) and opened its door to a wide range of other professionals. While much has changed, our commitment to serving those who serve our community remains the same.

That’s why today CUA offers both healthcare workers and educators special rewards and benefits for being part of our financial community. Because putting others first shouldn’t mean your financial future should take second place.

For qualifying healthcare workers, CUA offers:

$200 for Opening a Checking Account

As a local healthcare worker, you’ll receive a $200 bonus when you open your first CUA Core Checking Account. Look forward to your payment 30 days after your first direct deposit. It’s our way of saying thank you for joining our community of helpers.

Auto Loan Discounts

We want to help you get where you want to go in your career and your financial life. That’s why qualifying healthcare workers are eligible for up to a 0.50% annual percentage rate discount on a CUA auto loan. Talk to one of our loan officers for more details about how an auto loan might fit your financial profile and goals.

CUA Healthcare Loans

Access a funding boost to help cover a large purchase, pay down a credit card, or manage an unforeseen expense. CUA offers qualifying healthcare workers a personal loan at a reduced interest rate.

CUA healthcare loans let you borrow $2,000 over a 19-month term with a $120 repayment at a special, lower annual percentage rate (APR). A CUA loan officer will help you determine your eligibility for a reduced-rate loan.
