From our start as the credit union for employees of the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) to now, United Texas Credit Union has been a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with the mission of improving the financial well-being of our members and the communities we serve.
In April 1955, a group of 19 USAA employees each deposited $5.00 to start the credit union. After a short time, the credit union made its first loan of $85 to reupholster a sofa, which set the institution on a path to become self-sustaining.
Since then, we’ve gradually expanded our field of membership to include people who live, work, worship and go to school in Bexar, Kendall and Comal Counties and grown into a full-service financial institution with five locations, almost 20,000 members and approximately $240 million in assets. Even with our extraordinary growth, we continue to deliver friendly service, done right.
