    Brief History

    We were founded on May 27, 1960, by a group of forward-thinking employees at Fairchild Semiconductor (the credit union was initially called Fairchild Semiconductor Federal Credit Union). By 1970, we had 6,320 members and $3.5 million in assets. The 1980s were a decade of great expansion in Silicon Valley and pivotal to our growth. We changed our name to “Technology Federal Credit Union” and opened our field of membership to employees of tech companies — growing assets to $50 million.

    In 1996, we were among the first financial institutions in the country to have a web page. We again changed our name to “Technology Credit Union (Tech CU)” and began offering a unique “Anytime: Anywhere” delivery system allowing members to access their account information from home — via telephone or online.

    Today, we are among the top 1 percent of the nation’s largest credit unions with 10 full-service branches throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and more than $3  billion in assets. We serve more than 120,000 members — including employees of such companies as Tesla, eBay, Applied Materials, Nvidia and Facebook. Search TechCU@Work Employers.

    We consistently achieve high marks for our customer satisfaction and maintain a 5-star rating from Bauer Financial, the nation’s largest independent rating service for financial institutions. With innovative products and services, mobile and online banking, 65,000+ fee-free ATMs worldwide, and convenient branch access to our financial experts, we are a credit union who has our members' best interests at heart.
