A Doorstep Surprise for Newly Retired Saultites from Northern Credit Union

A New Hammock To Relax In Is Part of Celebrations for Recently Retired Members

Sault Ste. Marie, January 27, 2016 – Northern Credit Union recently had a doorstep surprise for a couple of recent retirees. They made a personal visit with a gift of a brand new hammock to relax in, as part of its recent launch of a new Retirement Savings Plan (RSP).

In total, 11 Sault Ste. Marie-based Northern Credit Union members received the retirement gift. Two of them were surprised one snowy afternoon on their doorsteps by the Northern team to personally congratulate them on having planned for retirement and to present their gifts.  

“We know what it takes to retire in the North, and we wanted to warm up the day for a few of these special members. It’s all part of Northern hospitality,” explains Al Suraci, president and CEO of Northern Credit Union, “Things are different here in the North—the way we act, see things, and of course, the way we bank. This is true when it comes to retirement as well.”

The surprise visits coincided with the launch of Northern’s new RSP product – a 40-month Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) at two per cent. For those who prefer a shorter term, Northern is also offering an 18-month GIC at 1.6 per cent.                                                                                                   

Now, for the first time ever, Northern’s RSPs are available online or by booking an appointment with a Northern Advisor by calling
