Your Credit Union Since 1932

First United Credit Union logo

Hello Alameda County employees. We are your Credit Union had have been since 1932 when a group of Alameda County employees came together to form what later became 1st United.


A credit union is a financial institution that provides all types of financial services like checking accounts, credit cards, and loans. We're your big bank alternative and because we're not-for-profit, our members become the owner and profits earned go back to them in the form of lower interest rates, higher savings rates, and lower fees on checking.


We believe that being a good neighbor is at the heart of what we do. We celebrate our community by investing time and money where our members live, work and play. We are committed to the spirit of volunteerism, including financial literacy, our local schools and the financial future of families in our community.


Membership at 1st United Credit Union is open to anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, Solano, Stanislaus, or Kings counties in California. With many branches in the area, you can conveniently find us in your neighborhood.
