BECU is Washington's leading and largest credit union. We are a member-owned, not-for-profit financial institution that members can trust and experience the best value and service.

How We Do Business

BECU is a member-owned, not-for-profit credit union; we put the interest of our members ahead of profit. That's how we are able to return earnings to our members in the form of better rates, fewer fees and more affordable financial services.

Why no tellers at our Neighborhood Financial Centers?
We want to return as much value to our members as possible. One way we do this is by lowering the cost of banking—this is why our Neighborhood Financial Centers do not handle cash. We've invested in technology and self-service tools so most routine transactions can be done via ATMs or online. This allows our consultants to focus on providing high-level personalized service.
