Why Join Armco CU?
2nd Largest Credit Union in Pittsburgh
$500M+ in Assets
180 Sponsor Organizations
Armco CU is the 2nd largest credit union in the Pittsburgh area with $500 million in assets, over 30,000 members, 180 Sponsor Organizations and 4 locations in Butler, Mars, Karns City, and the BC3 Main Campus.
We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned completely by our members. What that means to you is savings. Banks are responsible to stockholders and therefore higher fees and loan rates are necessary to provide income to those stockholders. At Armco CU, members are the owners. We do everything a bank can do, but we return our profits to our members in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates and lower/fewer fees.
We are a state-chartered credit union and are therefore governed by the banking laws of Pennsylvania. Deposits are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an independent agency of the United States Government.
We will always put our member’s interests first by providing exceptional customer service, competitive savings & loan rates, and transparent products that are simple and easy to use.
We Make Joining Easy
Simply make an initial deposit of $5 into a savings account along with a one-time $1 membership fee, and become a member of Armco CU. This holds your membership and entitles you to use any of our services from free checking to low interest loans. All members also receive no cost financial planning with our partners at MEMBERS Financial Services.
