In a Time of Crisis

In a Time of Crisis, Our Focus Remains Serving our Members

In these times of uncertainty, BECU remains focused on the financial wellbeing of our members and their communities.

Dear Members,

In 1935, a credit union formed to serve to the needs of a community faced with economic hardship brought on by the Great Depression. A small and committed group of people pooled their resources to provide critical help to their coworkers by making loans. That's how BECU got its start, and saw first-hand how a financial cooperative can make a difference in people's lives.

Since that time, we have persevered through other periods of hardship and challenge for you — our members and communities. Today's unprecedented pandemic crisis affects each and every one of us in many ways. We face fears and concerns about the personal and financial health of ourselves, families, neighbors, businesses and social services that make up our community. This is a time to take care of the things that matter most, taking on the challenges we face to manage our lives and endure as a community.
