About US Employees Credit Union
We take great pride in the fact that USECU has been serving the financial needs of our members since 1953, when we began as GSA Credit Union. During the 1970's GSA Credit Union merged with two other credit unions; PDAA and NAIRE. The newly formed credit union was named Federal Center Employees Credit Union. During the 1980's FCECU began to grow rapidly. In 1991 and 1992 USECU merged with two credit unions, Hines Federal Credit Union and Custom House Federal Credit Union, respectively.
On May 1, 2000, we changed our name to reflect the broader scope of our membership to U.S. Employees Credit Union (USECU).
USECU Mission Statement
U.S. Employees Credit Union is a member-owned financial institution dedicated to helping members acquire financial stability by providing comprehensive services to meet their changing financial needs while continuing to maintain financial strength of the credit union.
The Credit Union Difference
Because a credit union is a not-for-profit organization, we are able to pay higher dividends on deposits, charge lower fees, and our loan rates are generally lower than those offered by conventional for-profit financial institutions.
