Why UMe?

We love numbers, but we’ll never treat you like one.

At UMe, we’re not your typical financial institution—and we like it that way

The relationship between U + Me (us) is our first priority. You can always count on us to support your financial needs. Perfect service is our goal, but even when we can’t nail it the first time, we’ll do our very best to fix it (we’re thorough like that).

  • Better than a bank

    Bragging’s not really our thing—but we do think you’ll love banking here. Unlike big banks, our customers are members, which means you own part of UMe.

    “Owning a credit union is cool and all, but what’s in it for me?”

    Good question! As a not-for-profit, our earnings directly benefit you. This translates to higher savings rates, better loan rates and lower fees.

  • Not just any credit union

    There are credit unions… and then there’s UMe. We’re experts at what we do, but we’re also big advocates of fun and quirky (because let’s be honest, banking can be a touch dry).

    And did we mention we love dogs? Bring Bowser when you visit our branch. We’ll have a snack ready, and treat him like the esteemed dignitary that he is.

  • We heart tech

    We love seeing our members in person. But we know that sometimes you just need to check your balance and get on with life.

    Cue our online and mobile banking. Access your UMe accounts any time from your computer or device. Our mobile app lets you send money instantly with Zelle®, deposit checks, pay bills, secure your cards and more—right from your phone or tablet. The future is now!

Humble Beginnings

Through our long history, we’ve learned that there’s no limit to what we can accomplish together. You’re the peanut butter to our chocolate, the Bert to our Ernie, the Turner to our Hooch!

How we started

Fun fact: our credit union started out of a teacher’s desk drawer. The year was 1940, and our credit union was chartered by a group of Burbank Unified School District teachers. Our name? Burbank Teachers Federal Credit Union.

Where we are today

Today we have over 16,000 members and occupy a beautiful space on Magnolia Boulevard in the heart of Burbank. A lot has changed since our humble beginnings, but we’re proud to continue a tradition that’s built on real people.

Proud to call Burbank home

We wear our Burbank pride loud and proud. We love our community and do our best to support it in every way we can. We believe in helping, which is why we created our UMeHelps initiative. We strive to help make our community the very best it can be!
