Currently, Truity is the fifth largest credit union headquartered in Oklahoma, Truity Credit Union has nearly 70,000 members and assets in excess of $1 billion. The Credit Union was established in 1939 by the Jane Phillips Sorority in Bartlesville, and became known as the 66 Federal Credit Union.
Mildred Hunt was the first treasurer and she conducted credit union business at her desk in the pipeline department at Phillips Petroleum Company during her lunch break and after hours. At that time a single quarter opened a savings account which allowed members to obtain unsecured loans up to $50.
The Truity re-brand occurred in 2013 to help convey that Phillips Petroleum Company and ConocoPhillips were not the only two employee groups served by the Credit Union, and “help position the Credit Union for future growth and financial strength.” In case you were wondering, “Truity” is a manufactured word, combining trust and integrity.
