West Virginia Public Employees Credit Union was founded in 1981 to provide financial services to state employees and their family's. Today, the credit union has expanded and serves retired state employees, political subdivisions of the state who participate in the West Virginia Retirement System or Boards of Education, Family Members of Eligible Participants, and organizations of such persons. Numerous member groups are associated with the credit union as seen on the member group page. Effective January 1, 2002, the Credit Union changed it's name to "The State Credit Union" to better reflect our growing membership.
Numerous people helped the credit union form and become one of the largest member based credit unions in the state. The Governor at the time was Jay Rockefeller and the Commissioner of Banking who issued the Credit Union's certificate of authority was Phyllis Huff Arnold. One of the original incorporators of the Credit Union, Chairman Charles McDaniel, continues to serve in a voluntary role, and many others are still members. At the initial organizational meeting, over 200 people attended. Today, we have 10,000 plus members being served by normally a dozen employees. This is something we are quite proud of. When you call us, you get fast results and little waiting because your time is important.
Over the years, the Credit Union has evolved and now can be a person's primary financial institution offering many products and services. See the Services Page.
