Self-Help Credit Union

Self-Help Mergers


In 2004, Self-Help Credit Union merged with a small credit union in Wilson, North Carolina. Since then, more than 20 financial institutions have joined Self-Help Credit Union or Self-Help Federal Credit Union. These mergers, in the Carolinas, Florida, California, Illinois and Wisconsin, have helped preserve and expand services in both rural and urban communities.

Find out more by checking out a timeline of Self-Help history through 2020 and an ongoing series of short documentary videos capturing the diverse and remarkable histories of the institutions that have joined the Self-Help family.
