Payroll Benefit Program

Experience a better way to bank.

Switch your payroll to a BC credit union today and get $200*!

BCCA has partnered with the Credit Unions of BC to offer B.C. employees $200 in cash if they switch from a bank to a credit union for their payroll deposits.

Your employees who reside and work in B.C. can get their cash card by contacting the Credit Unions of BC — hello[at]

Or, if requested by a BCCA member, Credit Unions of BC will hold an orientation session either in person or through a conference call for your employees who want to take advantage of the $200 incentive. The promotional Cash Cards will be distributed to your co-operative. Credit Unions of BC will even add your logo to the Cards!

Why join a Credit Union?

Member Owned

Just like a co-operative, credit unions are member owned. Each member is required to purchase a share (usually $5) and with that they gain an equal vote, equal share and equal say, all for simply choosing to belong.

First Class Service

Each credit union member is entitled to the very best – including the best rates, perks and offers available. Credit unions treat all their members equally so you never have to wonder if you’re getting the best offer possible.

Credit unions have received accolades across the board in regards to member satisfaction and have the service excellence awards to prove it.

Community Involvement

When credit unions profit we give the proceeds back to members
and to the community at large. Members benefit either through dividends or free products and services, while the community benefits from scholarships, sponsorships and charitable giving.

Deposit Guarantee

Credit union deposits are protected and guaranteed by the Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (CUDIC).

It’s simple to join a BC credit union:

1.     Visit to find a credit union near you

2.     Open a new credit union account and add payroll direct deposit

3.     Give the credit union your Co-operative Employee $200 cash card

4.     Receive $200 in your account once payroll direct deposit has been confirmed

*You must add payroll direct deposit to your new credit union account to receive the $200 incentive.
