Membership Eligibility

Grow with Us!

For more than 65 years, we’ve helped people save money and find financial wellness. Now, we can help more of our neighbors in Southeast Ohio find the financial tools they need to manage their money and make their dreams come true.

We've received approval from the State of Ohio to expand our membership charter. The approval means OUCU can now serve those who live, work, worship or attend school in the following counties: Athens, Fairfield, Hocking, Meigs, Morgan, Perry, Vinton, and Washington County. 

“We’re excited about this opportunity to serve more of Southern Ohio,” stated OUCU CEO Cory Corrigan. “Athens and its contiguous counties share many of the same challenges, so we’re glad to bring low cost loans, valuable services and cutting-edge technology to a larger community. For 65 years, our goal has been to connect people to the financial tools to help them make the most of their money. We’ve always been about ‘People Helping People.”
