Why Choose a Credit Union?

Earnings are returned to you in the form of better rates and lower fees.

We’re not like banks where the profits go straight into the pockets of shareholders. Our earnings go straight back to you in the form of better rates, dividends, and lower fees.

We are a not-for-profit owned and governed by the members.

Not only are our members a part of our community, they are stakeholders of the credit union and are key players to how we operate.

Credit Unions consistently offer better rates than the big banks.

We are in the business of helping people achieve their short and long-term financial goals for their families as well as help them live a life of financial freedom.

Our Story

Originally known as Dallas Postal Employees Credit Union, Neighborhood Credit Union opened its doors to its first members in April 1930, just months after the U.S. stock market crashed. During the Great Depression, when American confidence in financial institutions was at an all-time low, Dallas Postal Employees Credit Union won the trust and loyalty of its charter members. In 2001, the credit union officially changed its name to Neighborhood Credit Union, a name that more accurately reflects the diverse base of members from all over the Dallas area.

Where We Are Now

Neighborhood Credit Union now serves the entire state of Texas and our ongoing effort to offer members convenient services in their communities and mobile access wherever they go, has made us a top-rated credit union in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Neighborhood CU has several Dallas-area branches in Anna, Coppell, Dallas, Arlington, Mesquite, Duncanville, Highland Village, Lancaster, Grand Prairie, Prosper, Richardson, and Waxahachie.
