Membership Criteria

First, we want to take a moment and say how happy we are that you're ready to become our newest member! 


Second, we’re big fans of saying “yes.” Becoming an Oregon Community Credit Union (OCCU) member is easy to do.


Some quick history — OCCU was founded in 1956 by a group of state of Oregon employees. In 2021, we expanded our field of membership to include Washington’s 39 counties. We look forward to serving more communities in the Pacific Northwest.
