Oakland County Credit Union celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2013 as a cooperative financial institution serving this wonderful county and well beyond. Following the historic merge with BestSource Credit Union in 2014, the credit union grew by two branches. Now with nearly 30,000 members, six branches, and approximately $285 million in assets, OCCU is well known as a stable, trustworthy, and progressive credit union with a focus on community. Our founders modestly began the credit union literally with a shoe box with a few dollars and vision to help those that may have been underserved elsewhere. We’ve come a long way since then, yet our diligent Board of Directors and staff continue to build upon the philosophy of “People helping people” every day.
Once known as Oakland County Employees Credit Union, OCCU membership is now open to all that work, reside or worship in Southeastern Michigan. We hope to make a positive difference in your financial life soon. It's never been a better time for you and your friends to learn what 30,000 Oakland County Credit Union members already know -- there just isn't a better place to trust with your financial needs.
We would love to have you join our growing membership and experience the credit union difference. We believe in the philosophy that people come before profits. That means we return any profit right back to our members in the form of higher savings rates, lower loan rates and better facilities.
Shop around if you aren’t sold yet. We’re confident you’ll quickly learn that OCCU is consistently among the area’s best in rates. It’s also important for you to know that our members tell us each year (in professional surveys) that we’re tops in member service!
At OCCU, our members are like family. And thus, we succeed together!
