About UsJoin Us
It is the mission of Catholic & Community Credit Union to focus solely on serving our members and to provide the best possible loan and saving rates in a friendly and professional manner.
Each member of this organization is an owner, and the money contributed to credit union accounts helps to support all members and their financial goals. Because of this cooperative, not-for-profit structure, credit union members enjoy savings at a good rate of return. Additionally, collective monies are used to extend loans to qualified members at competitively low interest rates. By saving, investing and borrowing as a group, each independent member of C&CCU has the opportunity to achieve greater financial stability and success.
If you would like to become a part of this member-owned financial institution, please stop by one of our convenient locations.

The credit union serves anyone living or working in the Illinois counties of St. Clair, Madison, Monroe, Clinton, Washington and Randolph, as well as St. Louis County in Missouri. Catholic & Community Credit Union encourages family members to join, as well. Your siblings, spouse, parents, grandparents and children are all eligible to enjoy the financial security of credit union membership.
To become a member, you must complete a membership card and deposit at least $5 (one share) into a Share Savings Account. This $5 share must remain in the account for as long as you are a member of the credit union.
Once you are a member of C&CCU, you’re immediately eligible for all the financial services the credit union has to offer. Also, once you become a member, you remain so for life by keeping one share in your account.
Since 1970, credit unions have been federally insured through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), an arm of the National Credit Union Administration. The United States government backs this fund with full faith and credit, just as it does the FDIC. That means that your finances are insured for up to $250,000 per depositor, with an additional coverage of up to $250,000 for other types of accounts, such as IRAs.
To further protect your money and the resources of the credit union, Catholic & Community Credit Union maintains a responsible lending policy. We extend loans only to qualified borrowers and will not put your funds at risk with sub-prime lending. In short, your shares are safe with us.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the soundness of your credit union, please contact a C&CCU representative or stop by our offices. You may also visit www.ncua.gov to determine your insurance coverage, or learn more about federal share insurance.
