American Southwest Credit Union has a rich heritage of serving its member owners since 1954. Nationally, many credit unions were chartered in the 50’s. There is evidence that ASCU (then, Huachuca Federal Credit Union) actually began organizing sometime in the spring of 1954. In those infant days of the Credit Union, unsecured loans were capped at $100 and secured loans at $300. In 1982, they purchased a plot of land where the current Main Office now stands. At that time, the Credit Union had $18,594,191 in total assets and a growing membership base. Total assets now exceed $253 million with over 28,000 members. Membership is now state approved to serve five different Arizona counties: Cochise County, Graham County, Greenlee County, Pima County, and Santa Cruz County. Members are served through five branch locations – including shared branching, home banking and by a friendly, efficient team of professionals. For more information, please visit https://ascu.org/.
