Membership Benefits


CU SoCal Membership Has BIG Benefits.

From everyday banking services like checking and savings accounts to home and auto loans, credit cards, investments, financial planning, and insurance, CU SoCal is committed to exceed your expectations with World-Class Service and Convenience.

For people. Not profit.

Because we’re a cooperative, our focus is on people, not profit. That means that when you bank with us, you become a Member and an owner with a voice in what we do and how we do it. Profits are returned to you in the form of free or low-fee services, competitive loan rates, and savings yields. In fact, according to the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), turning to CU SoCal as your trusted source for reliable financial services has big monetary rewards.

Financial benefits underscore Membership value.

According to the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Member Benefits Report, CU SoCal Members received $1,369,561 in direct financial benefits from June 2011-June 2012 as compared to using California banks. CUNA estimates that CU SoCal provided loyal, high-use Member households $639 in direct financial benefits during the twelve month period.
