Introducing our five-stage member experience standard

Reaching a point where you have a sound financial plan may seem like a lot of work, but we’re here to help. In partnership with Aviso Financial Inc.,* we’ll guide you through a simple, five-stage approach, resulting in a financial plan that reflects your current needs, future goals, and a roadmap of how you can reach them. This Member Experience Standard is what you can expect from us as your financial planning partner.

1. Information Gathering

We identify your goals and needs and discuss which of these take priority.

2. Analyze Your Situation

We thoroughly review any pension plan info, benefits, existing policies, etc., to help determine your current situation vs. future goals.

3. Develop & Present Solutions

We develop strategies with you to help you reach your goals.

4. Implementation

We help you start living out the financial strategies we’ve developed with you.

5. Review, Monitor & Evaluate

We understand your financial situation continues to evolve, and so should your financial plan. A review schedule will help to keep your plan up-to-date.

Estate Planning

Life is ever changing; marital status, occupation, the birth or adoption of a child, moving, or the start of a new business. All events will have an impact on your estate plan and require the need for a regular review.

An Estate Plan involves more than just will preparation. A properly created Estate Plan will allow you to influence the future when you are either unable to make a decision or are no longer around to do so. Working with your own personal attorney or through the barrister referral service available at WFCU Credit Union, members have access to a wide range of estate planning options depending on the complexity and need through our Avanti Investment Services team.


Having the right insurance coverage is a critical piece of any sound financial plan. Whether you’re in need of coverage for your car, home, or personal loan/line of credit, we will work with our partners to ensure your peace of mind.
