SCU Military Resources

Serving the Scott Air Force Base Community Since 1943

Our Military Ties Run Deep
We Serve Civilian and Military Needs

Scott Credit Union was founded in May 28, 1943 by a group of visionaries from Scott Field who decided to create a local credit union where the average person could save and borrow money.

Our ties to Scott Air Force Base and members of the military remain strong. We continue to operate as the only credit union on base. Serving our members in the military is still a focus for us today. We work hard to provide our military members, and all of our membership, with the financial services they need whether they are stationed nearby or abroad.

The Blended Retirement System came into full effect. This new system reflects DoD’s support for retirement savings by offering automatic and matching contributions to a tax-deferred account and will now extend these retirement benefits for all service members. This is an added benefit for junior service members and for those who separate before serving 20 years. Current military members must choose to permanently “opt-in” to the new system or automatically remain in the current system. This means there are some big personal decisions on the financial horizon.
