Members should be aware of an automated phone scam currently in the wild. If you receive a phone call, with a recorded message indicating that there is a hold on your M&T debit card, do not return the call, and do not provide any card information. If you have provided your Alternatives FCU card information in response to this scam, please contact Alternatives FCU immediately.
We are completely honored and thrilled to receive this award! This award "honors credit unions that consistently excel in the advancement of credit union ideals, are proactive in their communities and meet the needs of their own diverse member bases."
Unexpected expenses can be tough. We are here to help. If you can document emergency medical, dental, veterinarian, home, or auto repairs, Alternatives FCU offers a loan at a much lower rate than most credit cards.

Express Employment Professionals, Kathy Nivison
With a background of 15 years in Human Resources, Kathy Nivison started
up the Ithaca office of Express Employment Professionals to better serve
local employment and recruiting needs. Kathy approached Alternatives for
a business loan, and was impressed with both the loan's low interest
rate, as well as the quick response from Bob Anderson, the business loan
officer at Alternatives.
Kathy took advantage of our "Women and Minority" subsidized loan, which
helps women and minority borrowers who have a minimum of one year in
business and are looking for assistance with continued growth and expansion.
