If you are a member who has been or could be affected by the government shutdown

Many of our members may be, or could be in the future, affected by the government shut down, directly or indirectly. As your Credit Union, serving members in the veteran and government community for over 60 years, we are here to assist and work with you through this difficult period should you be affected by this shutdown. We have many options that can help you, such as:

• Skip a Pay programs – Automatic payment extensions for 90 days with needs extensions.
• Low/No interest loans – 0% introductory period loans with low interest terms.
• No fees for early withdrawal on CD deposits
• Refinance a loan at another institution with no payment due for 90 days.

We want to help alleviate some of the financial pressures you may feel during this difficult time.  Please visit the branch location nearest you, apply online at or call 801-359-9600 so we can discuss in further detail the options listed above and what will best meet your needs. We are also available to nonmembers who may have questions or concerns about how this will affect them and what options they may have.  Please also communicate to family and friends, who may not be members, that we are happy to assist and meet with anyone who may have questions or concerns.

Welcome, Newspaper Employee Credit Union members to our “Family of Credit Unions.”

Dear Newspaper Employees Credit Union Member,

As of October 1, the merger with Newspaper Employees Credit Union and American United FCU is official.  Below is some important information for members as we transition these two institutions together:

  • You will see some new faces in your branch. Don’t worry, you current staff is still there to serve your needs, but will be getting some additional training and orientation over the next few weeks.
  • You will continue to access your account online on the Newspaper website.  No changes will be made to your member account or your online system until January 2. You will get information by the first week of December detailing these changes. We are committed to keeping account numbers intact with only minimal changes.
  • You will now be able to access your account at any American United FCU branch.  Visit to get branch locations close to you.
  • For now, you will still be able to access service center locations referencing NECU as your credit union. In addition, nonmembers (not members of AU or NECU) will NOW be able to do service center transactions at the NECU branch location (tell your friends and co-workers).
  • Beginning January 2, additional products and services will be available to you including:

-          VISA credit card with Reward Points

-          Mobile Apps for Android and iPhone/iPad

-          Full service mortgage department

-          Account dividends paid out not on balance, but usage of the credit union products and services.

And many other products and services

We will continue to communicate the changes taking place with you. We also encourage you to visit us online at and under the “About Us” tab where we will have updates and important information available to you on the progress of combining the institutions. Also, make sure to visit our Facebook page ( for important updates and fun activities as we continue to combine our two credit unions. We are committed to ”Being the Difference that Makes a Difference”.

VISA Card Members

You may have received or will be receiving a VISA ScoreCard Points Statement. This is a one-time statement that is being provided to you as a way for you to understand the points you have available to you and how to access the points.

In the future, this information will be available on your member statement. We hope this one-time courtesy mailing will help our newer VISA ScoreCard members have information on their points and the different ways to access them. Please visit a branch if you have any questions, or call 801-359-9600.
