Security Service Federal Credit Union was founded in 1956 in San Antonio, Texas. The company had 8 members to start with, each with only a $25 opening deposit.
Today, the credit union has grown to more than 925,000 members and more than 2,400 ways of joining. Originally, the credit union was only available to Texas residents and the U.S. Air Force, but acquisitions and mergers have expanded the company into the states of Colorado and Utah. The company is a full service, non-profit organization with more than 70 service centers in the three states.
Security Service Federal Credit Union has more than 1,650 full time employees and offers a wide range of banking services, but typically with lower rates than a traditional bank. The company still maintains headquarters in San Antonio, Texas.
