UFCU strives to develop trust-based relationships with its members by identifying their financial needs and offering them products, services, and educational information to improve the quality of their lives.
UFCU was founded in 1936 by the faculty and staff of the University of Texas at Austin with a desire to provide an alternative to traditional banking. UFCU has operated under the same ownership—its members. Now, UFCU is Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution with almost 200,000 members and over $1.7 billion in assets.
UFCU is from Austin and knows Austin. UFCU cares about the well being of its members, about educating them on financial matters, and about delivering on its promises.
