San Diego County Credit Union is San Diego's largest locally-owned financial institution. With over $12.9 billion in assets, SDCCU is a not-for-profit credit union wholly owned and operated by its members. Unlike most other financial institutions, like big banks, SDCCU does not issue stock or pay dividends to outside stockholders. Instead, earnings are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher dividends on deposits or lower fees.
Originally chartered in 1938 as San Diego County Employees Credit Union, SDCCU was formed to provide for the financial needs of local county government employees. During the 1970s, SDCCU expanded its membership to include all San Diegans and today, is open to everyone living or working throughout Southern California: Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara or Ventura counties. Those outside of the area can open an account by joining the Financial Fitness Association.
SDCCU serves over 433,000 members and continues to thrive as one of San Diego's premier financial institutions. With over 40 branch locations in San Diego, Riverside and Orange County, SDCCU is conveniently located in our communities serving consumers through superior product and service offerings. SDCCU is proud to have been voted BEST Credit Union 23 years straight in the San Diego's BEST Union-Tribune Readers Poll. SDCCU has also been voted BEST Mortgage Home Loan Lender, BEST Financial Planner, BEST Auto Loan Provider and BEST Place to Work multiple times.
Additionally, SDCCU is a proud community leader.
