Established in 1960, SRP Federal Credit Union is currently South Carolina’s fifth largest credit union with nearly 128,000 members, 16 branch locations, and assets in excess of $916 million. In 1959, the DuPont Company, which then managed the Savannah River Plant (SRP), distributed a questionnaire to all SRP employees to determine the interest in forming a credit union. More than 75% of the 5,465 employees who completed the questionnaire expressed interest, and a few months later, the organizational process began. Between 1973 and 1993, dozens of other SEGs were added – “It seemed everybody wanted to be a member of SRP Federal Credit Union.” SRP FCU converted to a community charter in 2003 serving four South Carolina and four Georgia counties, with a fifth Georgia county added in the recent past.
