Effective May 1, 2021, First Class American Credit Union of Fort Worth will become United Texas Credit Union.
We started as a credit union for employees of the United Services Automobile Association (USAA). In April 1955, a group of 19 USAA employees each deposited $5.00 to start our credit union. After a short time, the credit union made its first loan of $85 to reupholster a sofa. This loan set the institution on a path to become self-sustaining as a result.
United Texas Credit Union is 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.
We’ll Be in Fort Worth Soon
Since then, we’ve gradually expanded our field of membership. Starting May 1, 2021, it will also include people who live, work, worship and go to school in Tarrant County in Fort Worth.
United Texas Credit Union is a full-service financial institution with seven locations, over 20,000 members, and almost $300 million in assets. Even with our extraordinary growth, we continue to deliver friendly service, done right.
