Our History

Tulare County Federal Credit Union (we know it's a mouthful) has been serving the financial needs of Tulare County for over 80 years. Tulare Federal was founded on April 15, 1939, as the Tulare County Teachers Federal Credit Union. In 2002, the Credit Union expanded to include the entire county, and our name was changed to Tulare County Federal Credit Union.

As a not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution, all of our profits are returned to members in the form of higher earnings on savings, lower rates on loans and fewer fees. Every member has a voice in the Credit Union’s operations, and our leadership is made up of volunteers that have the membership’s best interests in mind. Once you are a member of Tulare Federal, you are a member for life.
