You Belong Here!
Since our founding in 1933, we’ve put people over profit. And when more than 5,000 Americans were asked to choose the credit union or bank they admire most, we were named in the top 3 nationwide (American Banker, 2021). We think it’s because we share your values – from having each other’s backs to keeping more of your hard-earned money. Join us along with more than a million of your fellow Californians!
