What Our Members Say About Us

Why four generations have joined DCECU … and why they intend to remain members for generations to come

Herb, member since 1953: “The year-end Loan Interest Rebate can’t be beat. They have some pretty nice people here. They know you, and they know what you need. I wouldn’t bank anywhere else!”

Melanie, member since 1985: “Nobody else has the rates and the rebates. I’ve had all my kids open accounts at DCECU. When one of my daughters moved to California and then to Colorado, I told her, ‘Don’t open an account anywhere else!’ With the online services and network of ATMs, you can bank here no matter where you live.”

AuBree, member since 1994: “The year-end Loan Interest Rebate is such a benefit. I wish more people knew that they could be members here!”

Landyn, member since 2006: “My mom opened an account for me a month after I was born. I’ve been saving here since I was a baby!”
