Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union changed its name to Seattle Credit Union on Monday. It's part of a rebranding to serve low-income and immigrant Seattle residents. The idea behind the 84-year-old institution's name change is to make it easier to say and recall. Low-income and immigrant populations are often targeted by predatory lenders. Seattle Credit Union helps those customers rebuild credit and, for those who have bad credit or no credit, find alternative ways to verify payment. The credit union also offers loans to help immigrants and refugees complete the last step to citizenship through a partnership with the city of Seattle.

Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union is simplifying its name to Seattle Credit Union. By eliminating “metropolitan,” our name is shorter, easier to pronounce, and easier to remember. If you are a local or new to Seattle, we are your credit union. From September 18 through the end of 2017 you will see a transition to the new name as we demonstrate our commitment to being “Seattle’s partner in growth and prosperity”.
