Sound is a member-owned financial cooperative that is chartered in the State of Washington and led by a board of directors, elected from the membership. Individuals that live or work in Washington can become members. Members enjoy access to low-cost deposit and loan products, as well as digital services such as online and mobile banking. There is no membership fee to join or remain a member. Individuals become members by maintaining a share account, often referred to as a savings account.
During the account integration (when the First Interstate Lynnwood branch accounts and services transition to Sound), clients that do not already have a savings account will automatically have one opened for them, thereby making former First Interstate depositors’ members of Sound. Look for more information on this as the account integration gets closer.
