Our success is measured by empowering members to achieve their goals.
Your financial well-being is BCU’s reason for being. That’s because when you open your first account with the Credit Union, you instantly become an owner. Because BCU is not-for-profit (and tax-exempt), all gains over operating expenses are returned to you as a member in the form of better rates and little to no fees, partnered with a service experience that’s simple and convenient.
The value of membership goes beyond just you, though. Once you become a Credit Union owner, your entire family is automatically eligible to take advantage of BCU’s full-spectrum of money-maximizing accounts and resources. And our “Once a Member, Always a Member” policy ensures you’re eligible no matter where life takes you. Simply put, BCU exists to place you in command of your finances and empower you to pursue your hopes and dreams.

Our story began in 1981, when a group of executives at Baxter Healthcare decided to establish a new Credit Union for the convenience and financial well-being of their employees.
From modest beginnings, our financial institution quickly grew to $500 million in assets in 1999 and then to the more than $2.6 billion in assets and over 200,000 members today. Since our early days, we've been a pioneer in the credit union industry, being among the first to offer ATMs, Online Banking, remote deposit and other advancements. Our innovative Workplace Banking solutions enjoyed by employees of several of the nation’s elite companies have led to strong corporate partnerships and recognition throughout the financial services industry.
Today, we've grown to be one of the nation's top 100 credit unions, but still hold individual member satisfaction as the greatest measure of our success.
Because our growth is channeled back into the best tools and resources for members, the Credit Union’s future is sure to be full of products and services continuously at the leading edge of financial empowerment.
Our promise is to continuously demonstrate all the ways We’ve Got Your Back. That means giving you the latest and most effective tools to make your financial life easy, convenient and productive. Whether it’s through providing our exclusive workplace banking solutions or allowing you to manage your money anytime and anywhere, BCU always turns collective member gains into the best possible services and resources for you.
While having your back means seamlessly integrating the latest banking technologies, BCU also believes in providing unsurpassed personal service. Our hope is that you’ll always feel at ease reaching out to us as a go-to resource for your goals and aspirations.
Looking ahead, one of BCU’s key motivations is to give you even more convenient tools for realizing your vision of success. We never lose sight of the fact that your life and dreams are as unique as you are, so our solutions are never one-size-fits-all. After all, you’re an owner and we strive to make sure you always feel like one.
