BenefisCU (Powered by TriscendNP) Announces New Credit Union Equity Member, Oregon Community Credit Union

BenefisCU (powered by TriscendNP) welcomes newest Equity Member to the advanced insurance Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO).

June 27, 2022 – Dallas, TX –   BenefisCU and Oregon Community Credit union (OCCU) announced a new partnership that will provide OCCU and its stakeholders innovative executive benefits and business protection solutions. BenefisCU, a credit union service organization (CUSO), was formed in 2021 in partnership with Goldenwest Credit UnionDollar Associates, LLC., and seven other market-leading credit unions throughout the United States.

Credit unions are one of the fastest growing marketplaces for non-profit executive benefits but have not typically had the opportunity to participate in, or realize revenue from, executive benefits and business protection sales. In fact, over the past decade credit unions have provided for-profit, publicly traded brokerage firms with more than $1 billion in commissions, primarily because the resources necessary to provide advanced insurance solutions such as executive benefits and business protection insurance were largely held captive by these for-profit organizations.  BenefisCU provides participating credit unions a profit-sharing opportunity to market advanced insurance solutions to their credit union executives, commercial account holders and peers.

“BenefisCU offers a comprehensive suite of products and services as well as the analytical and technical know-how to effectively deliver them,” said Ron Neumann, OCCU’s President & CEO. “We are truly excited to be in partnership with TriscendNP and the other leading credit unions to help create awareness and deliver these solutions to our industry.”

BenefisCU offers executive benefits, business protection insurance, split dollar retirement plans, 457f deferred compensation, Credit Union Owned Life Insurance (CUOLI), “Section 162” bonus plans, executive disability, long-term care, and advanced insurance protection packages for business owners.

“We are honored and delighted to partner with OCCU on this initiative,” said Dale Edwards, Principal at TriscendNP.  “Ron’s strategic vision and innovative spirit combined with the credit union’s industry-leading performance makes OCCU an outstanding partner for BenefisCU.”

Other credit union equity members of BenefisCU include Goldenwest Credit Union, Ogden, UT;  MAPS Credit Union, Salem, OR; Redstone Federal Credit Union, Huntsville, AL; Desert Financial Credit Union Phoenix, AZ; Michigan State University Federal Credit Union, East Lansing, MI; Sandia Labs Federal Credit Union Albuquerque, NM; University Federal Credit Union Austin, TX; and American Heritage Federal Credit Union, Philadelphia, PA.

BenefisCU Associate-level memberships are also available to qualified credit unions. Interested credit unions can learn more by visiting or calling (972) 318-1110.
