“South Division Credit Union proudly serves our U.S. active duty Service Members, reservists, retirees, Veterans, and military families, at home in the Evergreen Park Community and around the world with our credit union’s debit and credit products and services,” said Geri Burek, President & CEO, SDCU.
“We are delighted to partner with DCUC and the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) to deepen our commitment to our military and veteran community, collaborate with other DCUC and AFFN Member Credit Unions, and open our credit union’s ATMs to all AFFN cardholders who are in our community on travel orders, relocation, vacation, or seeking health care treatment at a VA Medical Center or Outpatient Clinic,” she added.
SDCU’s ATMs will proudly display the AFFN logo, allowing all AFFN cardholders access to all SDCU ATMs located in Illinois and Indiana.

The Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC) is an organization of credit unions whose membership consists wholly or in part of personnel of the U.S. Department of Defense, both military and civilian. The Council comprises 255 credit unions with over 14 million members. Organized in 1963, the Council is governed by a seven-member board of directors consisting of a representative from each of the services – Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps – plus three representatives at large. About two-thirds of the Defense Credit Unions are federally chartered, and one-third are state-chartered. All are insured by either the National Credit Union Administration (the federal regulator), or an independent or state agency, which meets federal standards.

The Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) was founded in 1985 at the request of the U.S. Army in support of the Surepay direct deposit system to provide U.S. military personnel (active, reserve, dependents and retired) with access to their funds through ATM and point-of-sale (POS) terminals at or near U.S. military bases worldwide. AFFN's mission is to increase the versatility of participating financial institutions to better serve the U.S. military. AFFN is co-owned by the Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC) and the Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA). To learn more about AFFN, please visit www.AFFN.org
