Member Bonus Payout

With Arizona Financial’s year-end Member Bonus Payout, you share in our success! In 2022 we paid out $6 million to eligible members!

Sharing Our Earnings with you!

Member Bonus Payout is our commitment to returning excess earnings to participating members when the credit union performs well.

As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, Arizona Financial has the flexibility to return a portion of the credit union's earnings to our members rather than enriching stockholders, like a typical bank would do.

So, what does that mean to you?

Mutual Benefit

The more business you bring to Arizona Financial – like checking, credit cards, loans and home mortgages – the bigger your potential payout and the more we’ll have to share.

The More The Merrier
The more Arizonans we have participating in our financial cooperative, the more opportunity we have to share the wealth! So, make sure to refer your family and friends to us.  
Membership Matters

By having an account with Arizona Financial, you're not just a member but also an owner. We share our success through better rates, fewer fees and Member Bonus Payouts. 

$51 Million & Counting

Since starting the program in 2012, Arizona Financial has returned more than $51 million in excess earnings to members.
