Better, By Every Account®
At Sooper Credit Union, we don't sell products, we build relationships. In the many communities we serve -- Arvada, Aurora, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Lakewood, and beyond -- our priority is to help our members secure a bright financial future.
We're committed to providing real solutions to help you reach your goals -- and we understand the major role finances play in your life. We're your trusted advisor, giving you personal, professional advice on everything from buying a house or car to the best way to save for a dream vacation. You'll enjoy fast, friendly service -- in person at our branch locations, over the phone, and through mobile and online banking 24/7. You'll also have the convenience of no-fee ATMs -- whether you're in the Denver Metro Area or just about anywhere else in the country.
Sooper Credit Union was founded in 1951 by eight King Soopers employees and only $157.00 in capital. These eight employees saw a need for a different way to do banking, and thanks to them, Sooper now serves over 34,000 members and exceeds $300 million in assets. Though based in the Denver area, we serve members in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and New Mexico -- and offer a wide variety of banking services that include savings and investment plans, loans for just about any need, and many convenient services.
Exceptional Financial Strength
Sooper Credit Union frequently receives recognition for providing outstanding financial stability to its members. We have a very strong capital position that enables us to continually grow, provide cutting edge products and services to our members, and build a strong infrastructure. Our financial strength and stability are furthered by our federal insurance under NCUA and our additional excess share insurance policies provided to all of our members.
Sooper is Different
While banks focus on their shareholders and their stock value, Sooper exists to serve our members and their respective communities, not ourselves, which means we charge you less and give you more. Unlike a for-profit bank, we return our "profits" to our members in the form of lower rates on loans, higher interest on deposits, and better services. The true meaning of "paying it forward".
What does it mean to be a member?
It means you're the boss, really! When you become a member, you become a part-owner of our credit union. Your basic savings account is your "share" in that ownership, and we look to you to help guide our future. Being a member also means you get to vote on our Board of Directors (a volunteer committee) and have a say in the way we do business.
Sooper's Mission Statement: To improve our communities' quality of life by enhancing our members' financial well-being.
