About TCCU


Serving the Community for 60 Years 

Fifteen members and a federal charter to serve the Torrance City employees began the foundation of Torrance Community Credit Union in September of 1958. Our first office was located in building we now occupy. Back then, it was city hall. The Credit Union office was, as described in the archives, a closet with one employee to serve the members. The bylaws at that time stated that the Credit Union would be open from 4 p.m. until the last member was helped.

 Even though we have grown from $15,000 in assets to more than $100 million, our standards of prompt personal service remains unchanged. Along with a friendly teller line, private loan offices, and an on-site financial adviser, TCCU members can access their funds from thousands of ATMs nationwide*.  

Torrance City Employees still make up the majority of our members. TCCU has expanded its reach beyond Torrance to the cities of Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes, Hawthorne, Lawndale and Lennox.

 Additionally, in the credit union spirit of people helping people, TCCU donates to several area charities and not-for-profit organizations. These charities include Heal the Bay, Food for Kids with the Volunteer Center in Torrance, Newspapers in the Classroom, Blue Steele Run fundraiser for the Special Olympics and many more.

 TCCU is dedicated to providing its members with the best rates, exceptional member services, and progressive and innovative financial products in an ever-changing financial environment.

The National Credit Union Administration's (NCUA) {simplepopup link=”popupFromLink1”}Share Insurance Estimator{/simplepopup} lets consumers, credit unions, and their members know how its share insurance rules apply to member share accounts—what's insured and what portion (if any) exceeds coverage limits.





Our mission is to provide innovative and exceptional financial services that enhance the lives of our Credit Union members and their families.

The Credit Union's objective: "Your Credit Union will treat you with respect, as a valued member. You can trust your Credit Union to look out for your interests, because credit unions are founded on the principle of caring about people, not just money."
