At Golden 1 Credit Union, we’ve always embraced the philosophy of "people helping people," from our humble beginning in California's state capital in 1933, to today, one of the nation's largest credit unions with over 900,000 members and $10 billion in assets.
As a not-for-profit cooperative, we return our earnings to members - not stockholders - through higher returns on savings, lower interest rates on loans, and more free services. We help honest, hard-working families and individuals lead financially better lives.
Golden 1 has grown over the years to serve consumers throughout California with 80 branches and over 30,000 CO-OP ATMs nationwide. We provide convenient and value added products and services to help consumers make the most of their money.
As part of our "Stronger Together" approach, we strive to become an integral partner in the communities we serve. We invest in our future leaders by offering scholarships for higher education. We offer grants for organizations that advance literacy and assist foster youth to help elevate California's youngest and brightest.
We believe in doing right by people. It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are.
We deliver financial solutions with value, convenience, and exceptional service to our members.
A dynamic and trusted leader committed to enhancing the financial well-being of Californians and their diverse communities.
