"This agreement with Western Union will give our customers access to the financial services they need," said Peter Alvarez, general manager, Right Choice Money Services, a wholly owned credit union service organization of the $3.2 billion Redstone.

Right Choice Money Services customers will have the ability to send and receive domestic or international funds transfers quickly and conveniently, with funds accessible for pay out at more than 500,000 Western Union agent locations in more than 200 countries and territories. They also will be able to make urgent payments across an extensive biller network.

The Right Choice Money Services outlets offer traditional checking and savings accounts alongside prepaid cards, funds transfers and bill payments.
