    Why Tech CU?

    When you choose Tech CU, you're joining a credit union that was founded in Silicon Valley by a group of entrepreneurs and future high tech leaders. The uniqueness of this valley is in our DNA — and we've got the history to prove it.

    Who we are

    Nearly 60 years ago, a group of forward-thinking employees at Fairchild Semiconductor (a pioneer in technology innovation) who knew there was a better way to bank, formed Tech CU — a credit union solely dedicated to the financial success of its members — and owned by the people it serves.

    We're a not-for-profit organization operated for the benefit of our members. Instead of maximizing profits to pay company stockholders, we invest our resources to deliver lower rates, outstanding service, and member benefits. It's like a bank you own — with the privileges of membership. To learn more about the differences between banks and credit unions, watch our "Banking at a Credit Union" video.

    Benefits you'll enjoy include:

    • Free Credit Score – Exclusively for members, get your free credit score and free credit monitoring along with special savings.
    • Control your budget with Card Manager - Set spending limits, merchant types, locations and more.
    • Loans and credit lines – We offer competitive rates and a full suite of loans and products for all of your financial needs. See how we compare to banks.
    • Convenient 24/7 Access – Our free Online Banking includes budgeting tools and customizable alerts, plus Mobile Banking offers Mobile Deposit and Send Money Powered by PayPalTM.
    • 65,000 fee-free ATMs worldwide — that's more than Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America combined.
    • Shared Branching — Perform transactions for free at more than 5,600 participating credit unions and branches worldwide.
    • Make an Appointment – We provide easy online appointment booking with our in-house experts (Personal Banking, Mortgage, Wealth Management and Consumer loans).
    • Answers Online 24/7 – Find the answers you're looking for with our intelligent search platform.
    • We'll Call You – No more waiting on hold! Use our Call Me feature and we'll call you back during normal business hours.
    • Space you can use – Reserve a conference room or hoteling station at one of our branches for personal use.
