Important FAQs

Why Climb?

The name Climb indicates that we’re constantly reaching higher. It represents the spirit of our credit union and what we’re most proud of: financially empowering your life journey with the banking, the resources, and the know-how to achieve something amazing and to realize your dreams. It’s fun, inspiring, welcoming, and a nod to the mountains we call home.

When will the name change take effect?

We will officially begin to change our name on May 28, 2024.

Is the name change a result of a merger or acquisition?

No. The name change is not the result of a merger or acquisition of any kind. We will continue to be owned by you, our members, just as we are today.

Is the credit union in financial trouble?

No. The credit union is in excellent financial health. With a net worth of 11.08%, we are one of the three strongest credit unions of our size or larger in Colorado. The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) considers a net worth above 7% well-capitalized. We were also just named a “Top Workplace in Colorado” by The Denver Post.

Why are you changing the name?

We know that our current name is a cause for confusion over membership eligibility, creating an obstacle for some in joining our credit union and experiencing everything we have to offer. Since membership in our credit union is open to most Coloradans, the Board of Directors unanimously decided to change the credit union’s name to lower that barrier of confusion and welcome more members into our unique credit union.

How did you select the new name?

Our team planned and researched for more than three years. We worked with a team of board members and management under the guidance of an experienced and respected branding firm.

What will not change?

Our routing number will not change, and your account number will remain the same. Your online and mobile banking credentials will be the same.

Will the employees change?

You can continue using your existing checks until they run out. Upon reordering, you will see the credit union’s new name and logo on your checks.

If I have automatic payments taken from my account or receive direct deposit, will I need to do anything?
