In 1957, four physicists employed by the Lab pooled their funds to form Radiation Laboratory Livermore Credit Union – offering financial services to the entire Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory community. As the cooperative grew in size and financial strength, it broadened its charter and expanded its offerings to include an evolving array of competitive products and services. In 1988, the credit union was renamed UNCLE Credit Union, a shortened form of University of California Livermore Employees Credit Union.
Today, UNCLE Credit Union offers the benefits of credit union membership to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, or Stanislaus counties. We provide a wide range of financial solutions including checking and savings accounts, consumer and auto loans, mortgage products, credit cards, business banking, and a full spectrum of investment and financial planning services available under our Wealth Management Center. An ongoing investment in infrastructure, technology and talent also contribute to an enhanced banking experience with a focus on convenience, personalized service, and financial education. In addition to five financial centers and 24/7 online and mobile banking services, UNCLE provides our members with access to 5,000+ shared branches and nearly 30,000 ATMs via the CO-OP Shared Branching Network.
