Largest Midlands Credit Union

In 1955, 15 civilian employees at Shaw Air Force base in Sumter, South Carolina pooled their money to charter SAFE Federal Credit Union.

Since then, SAFE has grown to more than 120,000 members and just over  $1 billion in assets. SAFE is the largest Midlands based credit union with 17 branches in seven counties in South Carolina.

Although our size, membership, products, and services have increased dramatically since 1955, our goals haven’t changed.

SAFE exists only to serve our members, and when you join, you also become an owner. Our not-for-profit structure allows our members to enjoy generally higher dividends on savings, lower loan interest rates, and fewer fees. And you can be sure your money is safe with us, as all deposits are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).

Below are just a few reasons why you should make SAFE your primary financial institution:
  • The positive attitudes and expertise of our employees make every member experience special. The culture of SAFE creates a small-town, low-pressure, friend-to-friend atmosphere where members are treated with respect.
  • We value our members' time by making transactions easy and fast. We strive to offer convenience services that help members save time. We also work to educate our members on financial needs at any life-stage.
  • We work to build lifelong relationships with our members. We want to ensure members know that once they are a member, any immediate family member can join SAFE, too!
  • SAFE is committed to the communities we serve. We work hard to support social, economic, and environmental well-being efforts. And believe that our support can help enhance the quality of life for all of our members.
