EECU is a member-owned credit union that offers a broad range of personal and business banking products and services. It is focused on providing saving, lending, and investing solutions to its local community.

On its personal banking side, EECU offers checking, savings, money market, and certificates of deposit accounts. Its checking accounts come with access to a financial management program used by the credit union to offer members a way to track savings and expenses. There are also checking accounts available that are more geared toward young adults and seniors. EECU features a hybrid money market checking account that has a minimum opening deposit and daily balance requirement, but comes with a debit card, online banking, and discounts on select loans. The credit union’s savings accounts offer the ability to borrow against the amount of funds in a given account and require a minimum average daily balance in order to earn dividends. Money market savings have minimum initial deposit requirements and offer increased interest rates based on account balances. EECU also offers certificates of deposit that range in term lengths from 3 to 60 months and offer dividends when average daily balances are kept.

EECU online banking allows members to access and manage their accounts, utilize financial management software, transfer funds, and pay bills. The credit union also offers smartphone apps that enable members to perform online banking functions while on the go.

EECU was established in 1934 when a group of educators and administrators pooled funds together in an effort to better serve the needs of educators in the Forth Worth community. Since then, EECU has expanded its membership to geographical residents and now serves hundreds of thousands of members through multiple branches in the Texas region.

Eecu Problems

I've been with this credit union for years and a few days ago someone got my account information from them a stole over $700 from me. They reacted very slow with the situation. I am very unsatisfied. But other than there slow reaction to this fraud issue, the bank is slow with updating information on your account and you have to check and change it about 3 times before they get it correct.

Review from Loyal Member

I have been a member of Educational Employees Credit Union for 20 years. They made getting my first auto loan very easy and matched an offer I received from other lenders. If my checking account is overdrawn they transfer money from my savings account for a small fee instead of charging $20 fees for every transaction I make. I have had other banks charge huge fees for overdrawing my account by as little as $10. The loan rates are great and they offer competitive CD rates as well.
