ABOUT US

Who better than a credit union to create a credit union program?

CU Certified was created in Maine with collaboration partners. Down East Credit Union was the first credit union to ask themselves, “Why shouldn’t we enjoy the same benefits auto dealers enjoy when the dealer sells a vehicle service contract?” The question was answered with CU Certified. Auto dealers have been participating in 100% of the underwriting profit on vehicle service contracts for thirty years. CU Certified is not a new program, it is new to our industry. We believe Credit Unions should be able to enjoy those same benefits, so we bring our partners the best idea in a generation for Credit Unions.
