Our History

East Texas Professional Credit Union was established in 1953 in Texas for Texans! We began as a member-owned and operated financial cooperative with a membership of 13 East Texans and an initial asset size of $65. Today, our Credit Union remains a locally owned and governed financial institution.
East Texas Professional Credit Union currently has five locations in Longview, as well as offices in Carthage, Daingerfield, Diana, Gilmer, Hallsville, Henderson, Hughes Springs, Jefferson, Kilgore, Lufkin, Marshall, Mt. Pleasant, Nacogdoches and Tyler.

East Texas Professional Credit Union has grown to become the largest credit union in East Texas, and one of the largest in the state of Texas. Our credit union exists to provide a secure place for members to manage their finances. This was the foundation upon which our Credit Union was formed and remains the primary focus of our operation.

We are honored to be recognized as FOURTH IN THE NATION AND HIGHEST RANKED IN TEXAS of all credit unions greater than $100 million in assets by the prestigious S&P Global Market Intelligence group. S&P Global Market Intelligence is a provider of information services and solutions to the global markets and a division of S&P Global. To compile the rankings, S&P Global Market Intelligence calculates scores for each credit union based on five significant measurements in comparison with industry standards: member growth; loans per member; net worth as a percentage of total assets; loan delinquency ratio; and return on average assets. It is a privilege to be recognized for this esteemed honor.  

In addition, Federal regulators have determined that a 7.0% capital to asset ratio is the benchmark for a well-capitalized financial institution. ETPCU’s current capital to asset ratio is more than 17.0%, or almost two and a half times the amount necessary to be classified as well-capitalized.

We are also honored to have been awarded a 5-star superior rating for financial strength and stability from BauerFinancial for over twenty consecutive years. East Texas Professional Credit Union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration, and is an Equal Housing Lender.

Funds to at least $250,000 are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a U.S. Government agency.
