It’s different here.®

OCCU for short.

What’s the credit union difference?

People helping people. That’s the credit union philosophy.  
 
Unlike a traditional bank, our members are stakeholders. We’re guided by a board of directors that our members elect. Our board sets our vision and direction.

 

We invest in our communities. Our profits are used to support our members and the places we live. Here’s how: 

•    Fewer and reduced fees.
•    Increased savings rates. 
•    Lower loan rates. 
•    Earmarked community funds. 
•    Charitable giving.

It doesn’t just stop with us. By becoming a member of a cooperative, you help other members too. Your deposits become loans to help the financial wellness of other members – people helping people
 

 

Our members matter.

Hear our members share what it’s like to be a part of OCCU and the credit union difference.
