Membership

What is West Coast Federal Employees Credit Union?
WCFECU is a state chartered and federally insured financial cooperative which was founded in 1948 by a group of people who realized an advantage to pooling their resources. As a cooperative, we are owned and operated by our members.

How long is membership good for?
"Once a member, always a member." Once you have joined, you may continue to enjoy credit union membership as long as you wish. You may change employers or your state of residence and still be able to take full advantage of the benefits your credit union has to offer.

What are the benefits of membership?
As a West Coast Federal Employees Credit Union member, you are a part owner and member of your credit union. And that means your membership makes a difference in the level of service you can expect from this financial institution. We are able to provide a personal touch not found with profited-oriented organizations.

We are a group of people sharing a common goal - to provide a place for members to "pool" their savings and provide one another with low cost loans.

The interest earned on these loans, in addition to other investments, covers the credit union's operating costs and the financial reserves we are required to keep according to state and federal law.

The remaining monies are returned to the members in the form of additional services, higher dividends on savings and lower interest rates on loans.

As a member-owner you share in the profits and direct the policies of the credit union. And you elect the volunteer officials for your credit union from among your fellow members.

We also have an Audit Committee which is responsible for an annual audit of the entire credit union. A Certified Public Accounting firm, selected by the committee, gives a written opinion of our financial condition.
