About Wescom Credit Union
Wescom Credit Union was established in 1934, when 13 Pacific Telephone employees pooled their resources of $65 and formed Telephone Employees Credit Union. These employees wanted to create a financial institution that they could trust, one where they had a voice and that would work in a cooperative spirit to help fellow telephone employees obtain hard-to-get loans. In the 1980’s, for the first time, family members and employees of other Select Employer Groups became eligible to become members of the Credit Union. In 1996, the Credit Union changed its name to Wescom Credit Union, a name that better reflected the more diverse companies and communities it was serving. Now, 80 years after it was formed, Wescom Credit Union is a premier financial institution with nearly 200,000 members, more than $3.37 billion in assets, and 22 branches throughout five counties in Southern California. What hasn’t changed through the years is their commitment to their members. They’ve never lost sight of the fact that they were formed by their members, they’re owned by their members, and they’re here to serve their members. Wescom serves those who live or work in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, San Diego, or Santa Barbara counties.
