In 1953, four local but separate credit unions came together to form the Credit Union Center, becoming the only one of its kind in the country. Separately, each one struggled to maintain office hours and operating staff. Today, these four have merged into one strong entity known simply as the SLO Credit Union. That early spirit of cooperation is our core guiding principle, providing lower loan rates, higher dividends, and friendly, efficient service to our membership. This is your credit union. We take pride in getting to know you, so we can give all our members exceptional service with a warm and personal touch.
