About Us

As a dynamic, member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative, Service Credit Union is dedicated to offering quality financial services and products. In 1957, the credit union was established to provide affordable credit to the Pease Air Force Base community. Now the largest credit union in New Hampshire, with over $3.8 billion in assets and 50 branch locations in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, North Dakota and Germany, we continue to serve our communities and provide a better future to our members.

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.
