ConnectPLUS Retirement Program

Retirement is a time of many big changes, but one constant you can count on is your membership at Bridge Credit Union. Whether you are currently a member, or wish to become a member in the future, your employment affiliation allows you to do so at any time. At Bridge,  you and your family are members for life. Bridge Credit Union recognizes your many years of service and has created ConnectPLUS, a complete package of benefits for you.

Rate Breaks on Certificates and Loans

Bridge will give you an 1/8% rate increase on certificate and/or 1/8% rate decrease (offered on consumer closed end loans). Rate breaks apply monthly to the certificate or loan as a interest credit. If you were a member of our credit union for at least five years prior to retirement, you will receive a 1/4% rate increase/decrease. This offer is extended to you, FOR LIFE.

Loan Deferral

You may use the option of a loan deferral for up to two consecutive months following your retirement. Deferred payments are offered on consumer closed end loans; new loans are eligible after 60 days and we will even waive the processing fee.

Increased Platinum Visa Rewards

Earn one and a half points for each balance transfer dollar to your card. This is 50% higher than our standard balance transfer rewards points, and is in addition to our 500 bonus balance transfer rewards points. Purchases are rewarded with one point per every $1 spent.

Free Checks

Paper checks are still a great way to pay bills and buy the things you need. As an added value we are pleased to offer you free checks for life.
