From our start as a San Antonio credit union for employees of the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) to now, United Texas Credit Union has been a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with the mission of improving the financial well-being of our members and the communities we serve.
In April 1955, a group of 19 USAA employees each deposited $5.00 to start our San Antonio credit union. After a short time, the credit union made its first loan of $85 to reupholster a sofa, which set the institution on a path to become self-sustaining.
Since then, we’ve gradually expanded our field of membership to include people who live, work, worship, and go to school in Bexar, Kendall, Comal, and Tarrant Counties and grown into a full-service financial institution with six locations, over 20,000 members, and approximately $400 million in assets. Even with our extraordinary growth, we continue to deliver friendly service, done right.
While most banks are beholden to their shareholders, we owe it to our members to put excess earnings back in their pockets through competitive dividend rates paid on deposits, competitive interest rates on loans and a growing list of valuable new products and services.
