Space Coast Credit Union

Overview / Commentary
8045 N Wickham Rd
Melbourne, FL 32940-7920

With just seven original members and $372 in combined assets, Space Coast Credit Union (“SCCU”) was founded, as Patrick Air Force Base Credit Union, in 1951. Today, headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, SCCU serves over 300,000 members at over 50 locations along Florida’s east coast. It remains a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative.

SCCU offers both personal and business banking products and services. Its personal checking accounts – which include money market checking, student checking, and health savings checking accounts – all feature free debit cards, convenient online and mobile banking, and available overdraft services. In addition to money market checking accounts, SCCU also offers money market savings accounts with tiered interest rates, including multiple “Investors” money market accounts – which have higher interest yields, but also higher minimum opening deposits and minimum daily balances.

SCCU also offers personal savings accounts (a Share Savings Account is required for membership), Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), and Certificates of Deposit (CDs). Its IRA options include both IRA savings accounts and IRA CDs, and its CD terms range from 6 – 60 months. SCCU’s deposit funds are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).

As far as business banking products go, SCCU offers business checking accounts, business Share Savings accounts (required for membership), business money market savings accounts, and business CDs (with terms from 6 to 60 months). The business checking accounts vary based upon transaction volume. Just like with its personal banking products, SCCU offers convenient online and mobile banking options to its business customers.

P.A.F.B SCCU Experience

Went into the SCCU branch on May 25, 2019.Have not been in there for a long while. One of the tellers remembered me right away( Barbara Kelly).She has been with the SCCU bank for a long time. As we have as a retired Military Family,20 years plus. She made me feel welcomed and by end of visit there l was crying . Need more people working at the branches who care about their customers like family. The whole staff is wonderful at that branch. Did also tell the Bank manager there about my experience. Barbara Kelly and staff deserve store of the year in my opinion! Thank you for your time

Called About Special Rate

Posted by: garyh1961 | Feb 21, 2019

Little deceptive . Yes you get the rate for 15 month. But also required to renew another 12 month at rate when renews. So actually a 27 month cd. And probably will average 2.90 over the total . So not really any better than a straight 12 month cd at any other bank. The rate games need to stop...

I made a poor decision

Posted by: drakeg20 | May 3, 2015

It was recommended to me to use Space Coast Credit Union but their checking and savings accounts are a joke. After a small period of time they quietly limit the amount you can transfer and don't say anything so I ended up with all kinds of outrageous fees at the end of the month.These kinds of tactics were quietly withheld from me during the signup process at the bank. I was told I would never pay any fees, etc. When I called to politely complain the customer service person hung up on me. I've since done some research on their overall financial health after the wall street crash of 2008 and it seems space coast credit union is on borrowed time which explains why they are now employing the shady tactics of big banks.

Banking with a Credit Union

Posted by: rexarcher | Dec 22, 2017

My experience has been nothing less than great. I'm happy to have used them for my banking needs. I always felt being a part of a Credit Union is better than just being part of a bank. The experience seems more personal and the rates for are pretty good. I would absolutely recommend them.

12 Month CD Special

crispydinosaur   |  
With CD rates dropping unless willing to a long term CD (5 year) it is nice to see that Space Coast once again steps up to the bat and does a 12 month CD with 2.68 % A.P.R. . Take advantage of it while you can. I had a C.D. maturing at the beginning of the month and was able to get a better rate then I did last August. I just took advantage of it and have no regrets because I am certain the rate will drop very quickly. Kudos Space Coast, I will keep getting your C.D.s with great rates like this for such a short period of time.
