Bay Federal Credit Union. Making a Real Difference.
Bay Federal Credit Union is a full-service, not-for-profit financial cooperative. We provide personal and business banking services but, unlike a bank, we're owned by our account-holders — members like you! Our goal is to be better than a bank by delivering outstanding service, competitive savings yields, low loan rates, and many low and no-cost services. Our Board of Directors is made up of unpaid volunteers who oversee the strategic direction of the credit union, always with the safety and security of your money as the number one priority.
Your deposits at Bay Federal Credit Union are aggregated and federally insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration, a U.S. government agency. IRAs are separately combined and insured in the aggregate up to $250,000. If you'd like to learn more, see "Your Insured Funds" or speak with one of our Member Service Representatives.
Membership is open to those connected with the Tri-County area — anyone who lives, works, worships, attends school, or volunteers in Santa Cruz, Monterey or San Benito Counties may join us.
