Alaska USA member Anna from Sierra Vista, Arizona, recently shared her story:
"Alaska USA has been our financial institution for savings and checking. We also got our first home loan with Alaska USA. We have had a wonderful and long experience with them. They are always just a phone call away to help us resolve any issues, courteously and carefully. My husband's job has taken us all over the world, but our money and financial services have always been safe and reliable. They have built a trust with us that has been constant. Their website is user-friendly and always there for us. We get our income tax information at the end of the year online in about 3 minutes for our savings and checking, as well as interest on loans. Alaska USA is a good friend. We're so glad we're members."Anna
