Your financial well-being is BCU’s reason for being. That’s because when you open your first account with the Credit Union, you instantly become an owner. Because BCU is not-for-profit (and tax-exempt), all gains over operating expenses are returned to you as a member in the form of better rates and little to no fees, partnered with a service experience that’s simple and convenient.

The value of membership goes beyond just you, though. Once you become a Credit Union owner, your entire family is automatically eligible to take advantage of BCU’s full-spectrum of money-maximizing accounts and resources. And our “Once a Member, Always a Member” policy ensures you’re eligible no matter where life takes you. Simply put, BCU exists to place you in command of your finances and empower you to pursue your hopes and dreams.
