SAFE Federal Credit Union

At SAFE Federal Credit Union, we connect South Carolinians in our seven-county service area with the resources they need to achieve lasting economic stability. In fact, that’s our mission—to help members stay at their financial best through all stages of life—and has been since our founding over half a century ago.

We’ve come a long way since our early days in 1955-era Sumter County, where fifteen Shaw Air Force Base civilian employees gathered together what cash they had to start a credit union.

Now, we’re a membership-based not-for-profit financial institution with more than $1 billion in assets, over 120,000 active account holders, and sixteen easily accessible branch locations dotted across the Midlands.

Partnership that Works 

Since partnering with Electronic Merchant Systems, SAFE Federal Credit Union is now able to provide its customers with the lowest credit card payment processing rates in the industry.
