People over products

At DC Credit Union, you’re not just a number. You have a name, a face and a story. Our relationship with you is very important to us, and helping you achieve your goals—of putting money aside, buying a home, affording a car so you can get to your job more easily—is the lifeblood of what we do.

“DC Credit Union was the only bank that would let me open an account with my DC One student ID card. Having a DC Credit Union checking and savings account has allowed me to save money.”

Developing our community through cooperation and inclusion

Over the past 60 years we’ve made over 18,000 loans totaling more than $125 million. That money has gone back into our community, financing homeownership, home improvements, new and used cars, and retirement nest eggs. Most importantly, we help our members avoid high interest payday loans. We are dedicated to serving those in our community who haven’t had access to financial services and affordable credit.



We believe that where you start shouldn’t determine where you end up.

Giving first and second chances

We believe that where you start shouldn’t determine where you end up. Life throws challenges at each of us. DC Credit Union is here to help you achieve financial transformation, by giving you access to the financial tools you need to move forward. Here at DC Credit Union we work individually with our members to solve problems, answer questions, and get things done.

“Because of the Signature Loan I took out, I was able to do some renovations on my home. It made me feel really good, and it made me and my children feel safer.”
