With an Empower Credit Union checking account, you have the opportunity to avoid ATM surcharges with our partner, Alliance One!

What is Alliance One? Alliance One is a group of credit unions and other financial institutions that have joined together to provide their members and customers with access to a nationwide alliance of surcharge-free ATMs.

How can Alliance One help you avoid ATM surcharges? Since we are a member of the Alliance One Network, you have the opportunity to avoid the ATM surcharges (often up to $5.00 per transaction) that are often assessed when you use an ATM owned by another financial institution.

To avoid these fees, just look for the blue and white Alliance One logo on ATMs around town and across the nation. You also can search for participating Alliance One any by visiting us online at
