Our History - Members. Value. Community.
Long before our members enjoyed Scott Credit Union online and mobile banking services, 27 civil service employees at Scott Air Force Base started a simple financial cooperative. The Scott Field Civilian Employees’ Credit Union limited the initial membership to civil servants within the Army Air Force Technical Training Command at what was then known as Scott Field.
What hasn’t changed over the years is our cooperative structure. Each person who joins SCU with an initial $5 savings deposit is also an owner. If you live or work in any of the 32 Illinois and Missouri counties we serve, you’re eligible to join.
Our products and services and pricing are driven by our members’ needs, not by stockholders looking to increase their net worth. Our Board of Directors consists of members who are volunteers. They consistently provide strategic direction with our members’ financial well being as first priority, offering industry-leading banking solutions in a community-focused cooperative structure.
Join our 150,000 plus members and enjoy the best credit union bank services and rates you’ll find anywhere, and join a community that gives back and cares about the places where we all live and work.
