As a member of a credit union, you enjoy personalized and trustworthy service from people who work hard for you and do the right thing for you. Joining means more than just putting your money somewhere — it means gaining lifelong partnership in achieving and maintaining financial success.

As a member of Chevron Federal Credit Union, you belong.

You’re an owner

Deposit money into a credit union savings account, and you become both a member and an owner. While other financial institutions pay profits to outside stockholders, credit unions return their net earnings to their own member-owners through high dividends (interest) on savings and low rates on loans. This collaborative arrangement is unique to credit unions and has been a core part of their operation for hundreds of years.

At Chevron Federal Credit Union, policy and decisions are made by member-owners just like you. Our Board of Directors sets policy while our Supervisory Committee oversees all aspects of Chevron Federal Credit Union’s operations and provides guidance to Chevron Federal Credit Union’s professional staff. Both the board members and the internal committee members are unpaid volunteers who have a personal interest in the Credit Union’s success because they are also member-owners.

People helping people

Credit unions are, and have always been, cooperative organizations. They originated in Europe in the 19th century to combat the then-common practice of the wealthy lending money at high rates of interest to those with less wealth. People banded together in protest and started to pool their available money and lend it, at reasonable rates, to their peers in need.

People helping people is what led to the formation of credit unions, and it remains our most fundamental core value. Despite Chevron Federal Credit Union’s growth and success, we always stay true to our original goal — people helping people.

As part of this commitment, we provide a full range of services that are equal to or better than those at other financial institutions, at affordable rates. We offer lower loan rates, higher dividends, and low or no fees for a diverse range of products and services.

Service is personal and convenient

Credit union membership means personalized service from people who know you. No longer just one of many — you belong.

Chevron Federal Credit Union takes this commitment seriously, and we offer accessible banking services worldwide. In addition to our own ATMs, you can use 85,000 ATMs surcharge free, across four major ATM networks. Visit Chevron Federal Credit Union branches for welcoming in-person service, and enjoy the same friendly in-person service at Spectrum Credit Union, which is part of the Chevron Federal Credit Union family. 

Along with other credit unions, we’re part of the CO-OP Shared Branch network. That means you can conduct transactions at thousands of credit unions coast to coast. Collectively, the CO-OP network has more branches than any of the major large banks. So that sense of belonging is bigger than you might think, as is the banking freedom it offers.

Strong federal share insurance

The shares in your Chevron Federal Credit Union accounts are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which is an arm of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), to at least $250,000 per individual depositor, per account category. So you can rest easy knowing your money is protected.

Similar to the insurance provided to banks through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the NCUSIF is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. 

Chevron Federal Credit Union and all credit unions insured by the NCUSIF must display the official NCUA insurance sign in their physical locations. That means each time you visit your local branch, you’ll be reminded that your money is safe and protected. Learn more about Chevron Federal Credit Union’s federal share insurance.

"25+ years I've been using Chevron Federal Credit Union and have always gotten excellent service, be it for a loan, a phone call to customer service or in one of the branches. I also am very impressed at the rates you offer for the MarketEdge account, the special rate for kids accounts and the very competitive loan rates (personal and mortgage)."
