Finding A New Financial Partner In Your New Hometown
Moving is an exciting, often life-changing experience—but it also comes with its own set of unique challenges. One of those challenges is finding a new financial institution that can help you achieve your goals. If that sounds a little daunting, that’s because it is—especially if you’re tired of dealing with traditional banks. The good news is: your new financial partner doesn’t have to be a bank.

Why go with a credit union?

Credit unions offer the same services and technology as traditional banks, but unlike those banks they don’t maximize profits for investors. Instead, their focus is on helping the members save and earn more money.

Being a member has many perks. 

When you join a credit union, you become an important part of the organization. And you get tons of perks, including:

  • Flexible terms and low rates.

Because credit unions service most of the loans they make, they have the power to design loans with flexible terms and low rates to fit your needs.

  • Profit Sharing.

Credit unions share their excess revenue with their members in the form of lower rates on loans, higher rates on deposits and a possible year-end giveback.


Why go with Ascend?

Besides the perks and benefits described above, Ascend Federal Credit Union has stability and growth on its side: since starting with eight members at Arnold Air Force Base in Tullahoma, today we proudly serve almost 260,000 members across the Middle Tennessee area.

More importantly, we always strive to find new ways to give back to the people and communities we serve, making donations to 175 local organizations last year alone.

Ascend Amphitheater

Have we mentioned one of the finest music venues in the Middle Tennessee bears our name? We are proud to be a part of the Middle Tennessee area’s rich musical traditions. This is why our members get Ascend Amphitheater perks such as early access codes to tickets for select events.
