California Coast's Proud History
California Coast has a long history based in member service that continues today. As the oldest credit union in San Diego, California Coast has been serving members since the day it was founded in 1929 by a group of educators. Through the years, our credit union has greatly expanded through individual members and mergers. Our founding members also include Solar Aircraft Employees in 1939, followed by telephone employees in 1947and many more. The credit union's financial stability and reputation for outstanding member service continue to attract members who appreciate the benefits of membership.
In 2008, California Coast joined with First Future Credit Union in a historic merger of equals. First Future also brought a proud history, serving members since 1939. The result is an even better California Coast Credit Union. The credit union now offers over 20 branches, competitive deposit rates, lower loan rates, additional services, enhanced technology and the same friendly, knowledgeable staff whom members know and trust. Today, California Coast Credit Union is over $1.8 billion strong and serves more than 122,000 members. Although most members live in Greater San Diego and Southern Riverside Counties, 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.
