ONTARIO, Calif. -- The second largest credit union in Pennsylvania, the $2.4 billion Police and Fire Federal Credit Union, has added CO-OP Network, the surcharge-free ATM network run by CO-OP Financial Services to its ATM services, CO-OP has announced.
"We belong to several surcharge-free ATM networks that provide our members with access to their money," said John LaRosa, PFFCU CEO. "With 25,000 ATMs nationwide, CO-OP Network is, by far, the most extensive. They also provide this service at a much lower cost than some of the competitors we researched."

PFFCU, a top-30 credit union nationally, brings an additional 22 ATMs to CO-OP Network.
"While our focus continues to be expansion throughout the U.S," said Stan Hollen, CO-OP Financial Services CEO, "recently, we've been targeting Pennsylvania. PFFCU's desire to be convenient for its members so they can access their accounts anytime and anywhere is a philosophy we share."
In related news, CO-OP Financial Services also announced a deal under which the member credit unions of the Maryland and D.C. Credit Union Association will have access to CO-OP Network services.
