Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union was born to help City of Seattle workers help themselves. Nearly eighty years later, anyone who lives in the state of Washington can find financial autonomy by switching to SMCU. We haven’t forgotten that we were built by our members and are therefore a reflection of their wants and needs. We continue to operate by the same seven principles that our founders espoused when they pooled their money and started making loans to each other in 1933.
Send Your Bank A Statement
If you are frustrated with your bank, switch to SMCU today to start enjoying the freedom of owning your own money. SMCU offers the most unique checking account you can find today. Feel Good Checking™ has no monthly account fee, no minimum-balance requirment, pays a high dividend rate on the first $500 deposited, and offers free checks for life1. Plus, every Feel Good Checking™ account opened generates $20 for outstanding local non-profit agencies.
To make an even stronger statement, don’t just move your checking and savings accounts, move your loans and credit card too. SMCU offers better rates than you will find at the big, commercial banks. When you get an auto loan from SMCU, you won’t pay an origination fee that you might pay other places. Your SMCU VISA® gives you a great rate and a robust rewards program without an annual fee.
We Make it Easy to Switch to SMCU
You can open your accounts and apply for loans online, 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week at smcu.com. We also have friendly, knowledgeable branch reps standing by in any of our eight branches or by phone to answer any questions you might have about why SMCU is the right choice for you.
All SMCU branches (with the exception of City Hall) will be open from 10am-3pm on Bank Transfer Day, Saturday, November 5th, to help you make the change.
