In 1933, seven City of Seattle workers got together to lend each other and their co-workers a hand. They pooled their resources to make loans to each other that they couldn’t get from the banks. This spirit of people helping people has been a central part of the credit union philosophy in general and is a heritage that we at Seattle Credit Union take very seriously.

Our members are the reason we exist. Our number one job is to make sure that they are able to borrow money, grow their savings, and take advantage of special benefits as they travel on their journey toward prosperity, however, they choose to define it.
