In 1956, a group of Birmingham city employees recognized the city’s dedicated workers needed affordable, reliable financial services. On the eighth floor of City Hall, they founded what is now known as Birmingham City Credit Union. Like all credit unions, Birmingham City Credit Union is owned by its members, and every member has equal voting power to choose the credit union’s board members.
Now located at 708 North 17th Street in downtown Birmingham, the credit union’s mission is simple: help the hard working people of our city save money and reach their financial goals. It achieves this goal every day by providing affordable checking accounts and savings programs, as well as loans of all kinds with great rates and payments that fit members’ budgets. Birmingham City Credit Union also offers confidential credit reviews and counseling at no cost to members.
This is your city, and we are your credit union!
Membership in Birmingham City Credit Union is open to city employees and their immediate family members, including spouse, dependent children and grandchildren, who are not eligible for membership in the city’s Fire Credit Union or the Police Credit Union.

Birmingham City Credit Union is governed by a Board of Directors and a Supervisory Committee who are elected by the membership for a three-year term. Loans are made to the membership at the discretion of a Loan Committee who is appointed by the Board of Directors. The Annual Membership Meeting is held on the third Tuesday of January each year at the Linn Henley Library at 5:15 P.M.
