About SafeAmerica Credit Union
SafeAmerica is a $400 million community-chartered Credit Union, organized under regulatory laws that are monitored and enforced by the California Department of Financial Institutions.
Originally chartered in 1953, SafeAmerica operates in Northern California principally in the San Francisco Bay Area with branches in Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, Antioch and Hayward. SafeAmerica serves the California counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo and Santa Clara as well as numerous employer groups including members of Financial Fitness Association.

Why Join SafeAmerica?
Credit unions are not for profit organizations, unlike banks, which are in the business of making money for their shareholders. Membership entitles you to share as a "financial partner." Rather than paying stockholders, credit unions return earnings to members in the form of higher dividends, lower loan rates and reduced transactional fees. This means you can enjoy low cost loans and higher yields on savings and investment options.
