At CommunityAmerica, we’re dedicated to the financial well-being of our members and our community. It’s this commitment that drives us to share profits with our members, to offer competitive rates and lower fees, to create Unbelievable Partnerships with local businesses, and to support local nonprofit organizations making an impact in our area. As your truly local credit union, we are proud to be your trusted banking partner.
As a not-for-profit credit union, we return our profit to those who bank with us in many ways—like better rates, lower fees and our Profit Payout5. This year we gave back a record-breaking $9 million to our members.
Just paid my loan online and it couldn't have been any easier. I love the ease of the app. I especially like the security of the fingerprint identification to enter the app. I feel much more secure in my banking decisions. I highly recommend both the app and the (credit union) - the best people.
When it comes to our Mobile App, we’ll admit we’re a bit biased. After all, we worked hard to make it possible to do just about everything you can in a branch right from your smartphone. But tens of thousands of Kansas Citians have made their voices heard, too. The results? Near-perfect ratings on both the App Store® and Google Play™. The feeling of love is mutual, KC.
