Together we Create Good

We live by a group of six words that describe the very things we aim for in our relationship with our members, communities and our team – Communication, Respect, Enthusiasm, Accountability, Teamwork and Exceptional Service. Appropriately, the words form an acronym – CREATE.

We create the products, tools and services our members need to succeed financially. While that’s important, we do more than that. We bring financial education to the underserved. We support causes in our local communities. We encourage our team to make a difference for others.

Create Good is a social mission that includes community engagement, volunteerism and contribution to causes. It can’t be done alone – it requires a commitment from our members, our community and our team.


Our mission is to Create Good for our members, our communities and our team.
Our vision is to be the trusted financial partner for our members and communities, and the first-choice employer for our team.

When you open an SCE Credit Union account, rather than paying an application fee, you'll make a $10 tax-deductible donation to the Center for Financial Empowerment (CFE), the non-profit we founded in 2005. Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty by bringing financial education to underserved and disadvantaged youth. The Credit Union then matches that donation – doubling your impact in the community. Those funds are used to send the CFE into local high schools to prepare teens for real life by teaching them to be smart with money and credit through:

  • Fun, interactive, hands-on simulations known as Mad City Money
  • Financial training in the classroom
  • College scholarships for low-income youth

You’ll receive updates on how your money is making a difference, along with opportunities for sponsorships and volunteering at CFE events.

When you shop online through AmazonSmile, you’ll help bring financial education to local high schools. Use the link to select the Center for Financial Empowerment as your nonprofit and shop for a cause! In return, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the CFE. It doesn’t cost you a penny more, and you can help Create Good!

Lucy at the Sahara branch in Las Vegas exemplified what customer service is truly all about and missing in so many places.

Very great experience at this bank. Especially our banker, Leslie at the Boyle Heights branch. She went above and beyond to get our finances in order.

I've been hearing for some time about how good SCE Credit Union is toward its members. I decided, because of the good experience of a friend, to become part of the family. I'm glad to be here and look forward to many years of mutual satisfaction. Customer service is the greatest currency any company can have. Thus far, things have been exceptional.

My story goes back to when the Credit Union was still part of IBEW back in the 60's. I was 3rd gen SCE and retired after 42 years. 120+ family years . The Credit Union has always been there for me with great service and never a mistake on their part. Now in retirement it's great to know my finances are secure from any outside theft. I have had many loans starting way back when the application was all on paper. Now it's just a phone call away. So glad I started here so many years ago.

I've banked with them nearly 10 years now, and they always exceed expectations in every way. This is a more personal style of banking... the way it used to be everywhere. Patience is sometimes required, but is always richly rewarded. The SCE web service has improved nicely over the years, and I can't think of anything I need from a bank that they don't offer. They care more than most, and always try harder than the rest.

SCE Credit Union has been with me from the start of my financial journey. They financed my first car and were there for my family, too. Through the years, I've appreciated their customer service and the way they recognize me when I walk through the door. The branch manager at Ontario is awesome! She's the reason I keep all my savings with the Credit Union. She customizes and works the products to fit my lifestyle and I trust the integrity of this bank!

I love SCE Credit Union. I've been a member for about 10 years - the customer service has always been A-1! They helped me open a corporate account and made my day.

After 40+ years with WellsFargo, I decided to move my account to SCE FCU in Irwindale at my daughter’s suggestion. My WF debit card had an opening date of 8/70. Didn’t care. Best move I ever made. Great customer service. Kudos to the branch manager, George Silva, and his staff. Special shout out to Mari and Aviud. I feel appreciated as I appreciate them.

I'm a proud member since 2014. SCE FCU is very clean inside and out. I recommend anyone looking for a bank to go to them and check out their friendly and helpful staff.

SCE FCU is so kind and helpful. The team members are all so sweet. When we had fraud on our account they called and told us right away. The branch manager was waiting for us at the front desk and helped us with all our needs.
