Sooper Credit Union is a not-for-profit cooperative that has been helping members navigate their finances for over 60 years. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and are dedicated to our members' financial success, our community, and delivering first-class service. At Sooper Credit Union, we don't just sell products, we build relationships. Helping you secure a bright financial future through real solutions is our main priority.
Our members enjoy access to competitive loan and deposit rates, thousands of CU Service Centers and surcharge-free ATMs, and our complete range of financial products and services. We participate in the Shared Branching network, so even if we don't have a branch near you, you can still do your Sooper transactions at any credit union that is also a member of the network.

It's easy to join Sooper Credit Union and there are a variety of ways to qualify for membership (typically by where you work, where you live or through a family member that already has an account with Sooper Credit Union). Plus, once you're a member, you're always a member even if you change jobs or move!
"To improve our communities' quality of life by enhancing our members' financial well-being."
Sooper Credit Union was founded by eight King Soopers employees who met with the President of the Colorado Credit Union League on an evening in November 1951 in the living room of one of these employees. These founding members contributed a total of $157.00 to create the original capital for the credit union. The official charter was granted by the State of Colorado, Department of Banking on December 21, 1951. The original charter allowed the credit union to serve employees of King Soopers, Inc., which had about 270 employees at that time.
A change was made to the Charter in 1974 to allow the employees of City Markets, Inc. (a sister division of King Soopers headquartered in Grand Junction, Colorado), to participate in the services of the credit union. A branch office was opened in Grand Junction that year to serve those members. Since that time, the state law was changed, allowing credit unions to bring Select Employee Groups (SEGs) into their field of membership. Sooper Credit Union added a number of these groups to their membership that were too small to provide credit union services to their employees.
In 1987, two mergers occurred with the membership of Christ the King Lutheran Credit Union and The Independent Order of Foresters Federal Credit Union. In 2006, Sooper Credit Union merged with Colorado Central Credit Union adding approximately 18,000 new members, two additional facilities and $71 million in assets. Colorado Central Credit Union was chartered in 1939 in order to offer financial services to other credit unions and their members in the state of Colorado. For a period of time, Colorado Central Credit Union also served as the corporate credit union for all of Colorado's credit unions, providing loan and investment products.
In 2007, a Credit Union Service Center was purchased in Aurora, Colorado, making that branch a full service location. Also in 2007, Sooper Credit Union merged with Fitters Local 58 Federal Credit Union in Colorado Springs, Colorado, adding approximately 700 members and just over $4 million in assets. This brought all five Sooper Credit Union branches to full service status.
Sooper Credit Union now serves members in four principal states - Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico. A wide range of services are offered, including savings and investment plans, lending programs and convenience services. Sooper Credit Union prides itself on looking for opportunities for growth and a commitment of excellence to our members.
