Suncoast Credit Union
Suncoast Credit Union
From our humble beginning in 1934, when a handful of local educators founded Hillsborough County Teachers Credit Union, Suncoast Credit Union has grown into the largest financial institution headquartered on the west coast of Florida. We were originally formed to meet the financial service needs of teachers in Hillsborough County. A charter amendment in 1953 expanded the field of membership to include Pasco,Suncoast By the Numbers Hernando, Citrus, DeSoto and Hardee County teachers. By the end of 1957, Manatee, Levy and Sumter Counties were included; Charlotte County was added in 1959. By that time, services had been extended to all school employees — not just teachers.
In 1975, our name was changed to Suncoast Schools Credit Union to better represent our field of membership; it became Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union with conversion to a federal charter in 1978. We continued to grow with the addition of Glades and Hendry Counties in 1982, Collier County in 1983 and Lee County in 1993. Changes in federal field of membership regulations in the 1990s allowed the inclusion of Select Employee Groups (SEGs) in the our field of membership, allowing us to provide services to small employee groups that would not otherwise have access to the advantages of a credit union.
In December 2013, members voted "Yes" to a state charter conversion, resulting in a new name and new logo for Suncoast. The charter change paved the way for enhanced products and services, branch and ATM expansion, assisting more members in our communities and increased support of public education through the Suncoast Foundation. Suncoast now serves anyone who lives, works, worships or attends schools in the following 17 counties: Charlotte, Citrus, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Lee, Levy, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Sarasota and Sumter. Immediate family members are also eligible to join Suncoast Credit Union. Suncoast offers a full range of deposit, lending and investment products with access through branches, extensive ATM networks, Members Contact Center and the Internet.
