Community Involvement

We’re committed to our local communities

Everything San Mateo Credit Union does is meant to strengthen and empower the people who live in the communities we serve. From Daly City down to East Palo Alto (and soon to be in Half Moon Bay), we offer low- to no-cost financial services, great interest rates, free financial education, and so much more.
