About Us

Service Credit Union was established in 1957 to support military personnel and their families. Since then, we have grown to serve not only active military and veterans, but also families in New Hampshire and those living in the Falmouth, Massachusetts area. Our more than 800 employees provide financial services at 50 walk-in locations throughout New Hampshire, North Dakota, Massachusetts and Germany.

Service and community are at the core of what we do. We take pride in always being prepared for our members, empowering our staff and innovating for the future.

Our Core Beliefs

We take great pride in supporting and helping our members around the world. It’s our core belief that we exist to do what is right for our members and to be a trusted partner.

Our focus is on delivering value for our members and our employees. Our value system and core beliefs reflect just that: kindness, honesty, empathy, generosity and respect for others. When you join Service Credit Union, you’re not an account number or customer. You’re an owner.

What is a Credit Union?

Credit unions were founded over 100 years ago on the philosophy of: “Not for profit, not for charity, but for service.” The philosophy was based on the belief that by pooling resources communities can achieve a better standard of living. Everyone from co-workers to neighbors and those who don’t have access to credit can benefit.
