Frequently Asked Questions
Does Alaska USA conduct business in languages other than English?
Alaska USA only conducts business in English at this time. We make every effort to ensure members are aware of this policy by offering all written materials such as applications, disclosures, and brochures in English only.

Are you affiliated with any other financial institution outside Alaska?
No. Alaska USA is an independent, member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with branches in Alaska, Washington, and California. Credit union members live in all 50 states and in many countries around the world.
As a service to members that live or travel outside Alaska USA branch areas, Alaska USA participates in a credit union shared branching network, giving you access to your accouts at locations around the nation and internationally.
Does Alaska USA maintain a list of foreclosed properties for sale?
Alaska USA does not maintain a public list of foreclosed properties for sale. Alaska USA generally has very few pieces of real estate for sale at any given time, and established credit union policy is to list properties available for sale with a real estate agent. Consequently, the credit union seldom sells property directly.
For more information about Repossessed Real Estate, please contact the OREO department at (907) 786-2709.
