Since 1934, Utilities Employees Credit Union (UECU) has been providing exclusive financial benefits to America’s utility and energy employees and their families. Unlike a bank, UECU has no shareholders and is instead owned by its members – so every UECU decision is made with the best interest of the membership in mind. As a full-service, virtual credit union, UECU’s goal is to help workers improve their financial well-being, accumulate wealth, and conveniently manage their finances with 24/7 account access and free financial tools – from wherever they reside today or travel in the future. UECU serves a nationwide membership without branches on every corner because we don’t expect you to come to us. We deliver account access to you wherever you are through free online and mobile banking services. While other financial institutions spend money on their branches, UECU chooses to return these funds to our members.
