TruWest Credit Union Executive Vice President & Chief Information Officer Chris Kearney stopped by the CUbroadcast virtual studios to discuss how the credit union's members can get paid early from their jobs. Chris explains that members can get electronic payments early when they set up direct deposit.
This new service, which launched July 1, 2021, continues to drive the TruWest's mission of providing real-time services -- especially payments -- to their members. And, in less than a month, Chris says more than 20,000 members are already participating in this program.
The other item we discussed in this conversation was the famous Chime commercial that showed those customers boasting how they were able to get paid earlier using the neobank's services. Chris added that just about any credit union can do this -- and has been able to for quite some time.
Great talk here with Chris on a very timely topic. Check it out and let us know your thoughts. And be sure to watch the entire episode with Chris below the show notes for all the details.
