Founded in 1938, SDCCU®’s unique, people-focused approach has greatly contributed to SDCCU®’s growth and success, which includes being voted BEST Credit Union in the U-T San Diego Readers Poll for fourteen years straight.

Founded on the principle that people come first and profits second, SDCCU® is committed to delivering exceptional customer service and breakthrough banking products to meet the demands of today’s busy lifestyles.

Engaging in efforts that support a thriving economy to ensure San Diegans enjoy the highest quality of life is an important focus of SDCCU®’s community relations. SDCCU® helps individuals make educated financial decisions and engages in several financial literacy efforts aimed at improving San Diego’s overall economic well-being. To protect the community from crime and abuse, SDCCU® is committed to helping individuals properly dispose of sensitive data by holding free paper shred day events annually.

Each year, SDCCU® supports more than 75 non-profit and community events throughout the Southern California Region.
