Planner Icon   What is Member Plus CUSO, Inc.?

Why do we have Member Plus Cuso, Inc.?

Credit Union Members wanted to have access to Financial Advisor Services just like the local banks offered. In order to provide investment advice to the members, the Credit Union needed to create a separate division in order to offer those services. The separation was required because investment services offered by a Financial Advisor contain risk and are not guaranteed versus the products offered by the Credit Union. As a result, Member Plus CUSO was created in 1992.

As a member of Achieve Credit Union, members have access to an independent Financial Advisor who can meet with you personally to discuss your investment needs. There is no fee or obligation for a consultation. Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Annuities, Retirement and College Planning are just a few of the investment options available through Member Plus CUSO. Our Advisors offer securities through LPL Financial, Member FINRA/SIPC and offer investment advisory services through Sequoia Wealth Management.
Call us today to schedule an appointment at 440-324-3400 ext 129. Member Plus CUSO is located on the second floor of Achieve Credit Union at 3400 Griswold Rd. in Elyria.

Call us to schedule your free, no obligation consultation today at 440-324-3400 ext 129 and ask for our CUSO Department Cheryl Janik and Renee Dietz.  Member Plus CUSO, Inc.is conveniently located upstairs at our Elyria branch.
