San Diego County Credit Union continues growth as largest locally based financial institution

San Diego County Credit Union, serving San Diego County since 1938, is the largest locally based financial institution and is safe and secure for depositors and borrowers. SDCCU is well capitalized, significantly beyond the minimum regulatory requirements. SDCCU has seen tremendous growth within the last decade, expanding to 25 branch locations with plans to open its newest branch in Orange County in early 2009. This allows it to serve the entire Southern California region with first-class financial products and services.

Along with competitive rates, customers have 24-hour access to account information through Internet Branch. Online banking allows account access to check account balances, review monthly statements, transfer money between accounts and pay bills anywhere, anytime. Another anytime service is TalkTone Teller, a voice command phone system. Customers also have access to withdraw funds fee-free at over 25,000 CO-OP ATMs nationwide.

A major leader in the community, SDCCU supports charitable organizations through a year-round calendar of financial support and employee participation, including a partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of San Diego. Annual involvement such as title sponsor of the Walk MS and the San Diego Chargers Blood Drive brings needed recognition and funding to important causes. SDCCU also sponsors the 2008-2009 season of Broadway/San Diego and the Rady Children's Hospital Shamu & You Family Walk. They enjoy sharing the spirit of giving throughout the holiday season by serving as a collection location for the Toys for Tots program and as the presenting sponsor of the San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade and San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

SDCCU emphasizes the importance of customer service, which may be one of the reasons it was voted Best Credit Union nine years straight in the San Diego Union-Tribune Readers Poll. San Diego County Credit Union puts money back into the customer's pocket with low loan rates and higher savings dividends. By providing a wide range of products, 25 convenient locations with extended hours and 24-hour online services, customers look to the credit union as their financial partner. SDCCU goes beyond stating that customers are a top priority by demonstrating it through the products and services offered to everyone in San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties.

Late in 2008, SDCCU will launch new, state-of-the-art financial services to meet the needs of its customer base. SDCCU will be the first locally based financial institution to have a complete comprehensive mobile banking platform or channel, allowing customers anytime, anywhere access from their cell phones. Additionally, SDCCU will offer a personalized Visa photo card and added account deposit access through Internet Branch.

San Diego County Credit Union is the largest locally based financial institution with assets over $4.2 billion. Everyone who lives or works in San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties is welcome.
