ValleyStar Credit Union expands partnership with PSCU
ST. PETERSBURG, FL (September 20, 2022) — PSCU, the nation’s premier payments credit union service organization (CUSO), has announced it has expanded its partnership with ValleyStar Credit Union (ValleyStar). In addition to support services for credit, the CUSO will now also provide debit processing support for the credit union.

With more than $650 million in assets, ValleyStar was searching for a robust solutions provider that would deliver a highly functional, reliable and secure debit card program to its members. It was also seeking a partner that understood and employed the “people helping people” credit union philosophy. After a comprehensive review process, ValleyStar selected PSCU.
“PSCU has already proven itself a dedicated and trustworthy partner, and we felt that the CUSO was the right fit to keep our debit programs agile as we move forward in today’s constantly evolving digital landscape,” said Diane Walker, card services manager at ValleyStar. “PSCU’s shared commitment to delivering an unparalleled experience allows us to focus on our members, which is always our ultimate goal.”
