EECU is a not-for-profit credit union, owned by our members. We offer everything you’d expect from a financial institution, but it’s our commitment to delivering value, focus on supporting your community, and delivering a faster, friendlier personalized experience that truly reflects the EECU difference!
We are aware that you have a choice of financial service providers. That’s why we are focused on leveraging modern technologies, expanding convenience, and developing new products designed to help make our Members’ lives simpler. No matter how you connect with us, in-person, online, or on the phone, we want to help fulfill your financial goals.
Our story began in 1934 in the Fort Worth ISD administration building with the formation of a credit union for teachers and administrators. We were first known as the Fort Worth Teachers Credit Union. In 1976 we changed our name to the Educational Employees Credit Union, eventually becoming more simply known as EECU.
We are proud of our heritage of supporting teachers and educators and helping them and their families to sustain and prosper and are proud that we have been able to grow and expand as an organization over the years.
We are a 2.5+ billion dollar institution, with 16 Financial Centers across the greater Fort Worth area, Online & Mobile Banking, and access to more than 5,000 Service Centers and 85,000 ATMS nationwide.
Serving Our Communities
We believe helping our neighbors across our many communities is a prerequisite for being a premier financial institution. These efforts didn’t go unnoticed. EECU was named “Best Bank/Credit Union in Ft. Worth” by the Fort Worth Star Telegram. We were also awarded the “Corporate Philanthropy Award” for a small employer by the Fort Worth Business Press. EECU was also selected “Business of the Year” by the Kennedale, Southlake and White Settlement Chambers of Commerce.
