SSCFCU's mission

Our mission is to equalize economic power and to fight poverty by improving financial literacy and providing access to credit and savings services for our members. We are working to create and maintain an accessible, full service federal credit union organization, which is owned and managed by its members.

Who we are

South Side Community Federal Credit Union (SSCFCU) is a not-for-profit, Federally chartered, low income designated, community development credit union (CDCU).  All of our accounts are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). 

We are certified as a Community Development Financial Instituion (CDFI) by the U.S. Department of Treasury and we operate a HUD approved housing counseling program. 

SSCFCU serves a membership base of 2,000 with $3.5 million in assets after opening its doors in November 2003.


We created the credit union to economically empower the community by providing an alternative to currency exchanges, payday/predatory lenders and banks that charge high fees.  When you join the credit union yoou become a member owner, not just a customer.  Your account is an investment in the community.
