Texas Trust Credit Union is currently the 18th largest credit union headquartered in Texas, but its journey began in Connecticut in 1936 when the employees of the Chance Vought Aircraft Corporation (CVAC) established a credit union. Twelve years later, CVAC relocated to Dallas and by 1952, its credit union was the largest in Texas. The Texas Trust re-brand occurred in 2004 following two mergers and FOM expansion. In 2013, Texas Trust merged with Arlington-based Security One Federal Credit Union and was named the Credit Union Sponsor of the University of Texas at Arlington Intercollegiate Athletics. The most recent merger occurred in March of this year when Texas Federal Credit Union joined the Texas Trust family, boosting the membership to more than 132,000 with assets in excess of $1.9 billion.
