About Cal Coast

A tradition of happy members.

California Coast Credit Union was founded with the promise of “people helping people.” From the moment we opened our doors in 1929, that guiding principle has been apparent in everything we do, from the accounts, loans and rates we offer, to the personalized caring attention we provide.

Our service is friendly, our branches welcoming, and the member experience truly enjoyable. In fact, our members give us high marks in customer service, year after year. Currently, we are over $2 billion strong with over 150,000 members. It is with great pride that we give back to our community, working with local school districts, participating in food drives, and so much more.

California Coast has a long history of member service. As the oldest credit union in San Diego, we were founded by a group of educators. Our founding members also included Solar Aircraft Employees in 1939, followed by telephone employees in 1947, and many more. Today, we serve all residents in Greater San Diego and Southern Riverside counties.

In 2008, California Coast joined with First Future Credit Union in a historic merger. First Future also brought a proud history, serving members since 1939. The result is an even greater California Coast.

Today, California Coast offers 25 branches, competitive deposit rates, lower loan rates, additional services and state-of-the-art technology. Members have access wherever they live, work or travel through Cal Coast Online, a shared branch network of more than 5,000 locations and over 2,000 self services locations, as well as more than 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide.

Wherever we are, in whatever we do, we always have your best interest in mind. We listen and stay in touch with your needs and opinions through member surveys, product research and focus groups. And, we’re constantly developing new services and innovative technology to serve you even better. It’s our way of helping you reach your daily and long-term financial goals, more efficiently and successfully.

California Coast Credit Union Financial Statement

Great branch and customer service at this location. I preferred sticking with this branch instead of joining Navy Fed or USAA after joining the military. I've never had a problem here.
