Membership and Savings
What is a credit union, exactly?
A credit union is a financial institution which is cooperatively owned by the members (patrons) who use their services. We are also not-for-profit, so each year once our expenses and legal reserves have been set aside, the excess profit is returned to the membership. In the case of SCCU, we distribute our profits through member-friendly pricing on our savings and loan products, through our SCCU Rewards points program, and in the case of a good year, via a special patronage dividend paid out at the end of the calendar year.
How can I join SCCU?
Please see our Joining SCCU Page to view eligibility requirements. We will need you to open the account with a valid (non-expired) photo ID showing your current address and $5 to establish a membership savings account. Once a member, you can enjoy all the products and services SCCU has to offer.

What’s the difference between Traditional and Roth IRAs?
Traditional and Roth IRAs vary on when and how they’re taxed. With Traditional IRAs, the earnings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn and your contributions may be tax-deductible. With Roth IRAs, your regular contributions can be withdrawn penalty-free and tax-free at any time. There are also certain circumstances when you can draw out of a Roth IRA penalty-free.
