Description: Who are we?
American Southwest Credit Union was chartered in 1955 under the name of Huachuca Federal Credit Union with a federal charter to serve the soldiers and government employees of Fort Huachuca. Since then, the Credit Union grew with its membership by amending its charter to include military retirees living in the Sierra Vista area, civil service employees and private contractors working on post. The Credit Union also had one merger in its history. In the early 90s, Huachuca Federal Credit Union merged with Border Federal Credit Union in Douglas, Arizona. Later, the charter was amended again to include city, county, state and federal employees in Cochise County. Another significant change came in March 2000 when the National Credit Union Administration approved an amendment to serve all those who live in, work in, worship in, and attend school in Cochise County.
On April 5, 2007, our Credit Union went through an extensive conversion process changing from a federal to a state charter. This also brought about our recent name change-American Southwest Credit Union. Now, Fort Huachuca and all of the residents of Cochise, Santa Cruz and southeastern Pima County can reap the benefits of credit union membership.
