Safe and Convenient Banking for College Students

Just because your child is away at school doesn’t mean that they can’t take advantage of being a Bethpage Federal Credit Union member.

Thanks to our CO-OP Network membership, your children can also use any ATM within the network free of charge, even if it carries the name of a different financial institution. All they have to do is look for the CO-OP logo. They will have convenient access to their bank accounts through our shared service centers and surcharge-free ATMs in thousands of locations nationwide.

It’s just as simple to find shared branches, which are identifiable by the CU Service Center Logo. In addition to using ATMs free of charge, your child can also perform a number of important financial actions at our shared branches.

These include:

  • Making deposits
  • Withdrawals and transfers
  • Viewing account history
  • Cashing checks
  • Making loan payments
  • Buying travelers checks

This will give you the same peace of mind that you'd have if your child wasn't going too far from home. If they aren't, they're also able to visit one of Bethpage's 33 branches, 37 Shared Service Centers or over 600 surcharge-free ATMs across Long Island and New York City. On Long Island, your child can easily find an ATM inside a 7-Eleven, Costco, CVS Pharmacy, King Kullen Supermarket or Walgreens.

Opening a Bethpage Federal Credit Union account is the next smartest step you can take for your kids' futures. Letting them go has never felt easier.
