CU Service Network of Colorado [ 2 ]
Security Service Federal Credit Union is a federally insured, state chartered, 5.2 billion dollar, 693,657 member, natural person, credit union operating from approximately 40 service centers in Texas and Colorado. Security Service is the largest credit union in San Antonio, Texas and the 9th largest in the United States.
Security Service Federal Credit Union began in 1956 with eight members and $25 in deposits. This not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution was founded to serve the financial needs of the U.S. Air Force Security Service Command. The credit union charter has expanded to serve more than 690,000 members and more than 1,000 ways to join including several geographic locations.
Mergers, initiated by other credit unions, and some facilitated by the National Credit Union Administration, have helped expand the SSFCU field of membership and also responsible for the credit union entry into Colorado. A merger with the Fort Carson Federal Credit Union in 1980 brought Security Service to Colorado Springs and Pueblo, CO, with the merger of Mt. Carmel Credit Union in 1989. In 2004, SSFCU acquired Diakonia Credit Union in Denver, Colorado which added their presence in the Denver market. In 2007, Security Service acquired New Horizons Community Credit Union in Denver, Colorado, further expanding the Denver area with 4 new service centers, and Diocese of Corpus Christi Credit Union in Corpus Christi, Texas, establishing a service center in the Coastal Bend area of Texas. Also in 2007, SSFCU merged with Kilowatt Federal Credit Union in Harlingen, Texas, with 2 service centers in the Rio Grande Valley. In 2008, SSFCU merged with Horizon Credit Union in Portland, Texas (adding 3 additional Coastal bend locations) and Bexar County Teacher’s Federal Credit Union in San Antonio, Texas (their first location in the downtown area of San Antonio). 2009 brought the credit union with two more acquisitions, another credit union in the Denver area (Aurora Catholic Credit Union) and its first presence known in West Texas ironically called West Texas Credit Union in El Paso, TX.

Insurance options that save you money.
Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP)
Vehicles today are growing extremely complex and contain high-tech sensors, electronics, and computers that frequently suffer unexpected failure and need to be replaced. One-in-three vehicles experience a mechanical breakdown in a given year. Should your vehicle experience a failure after the manufacturer's warranty expires, you will be guarded from the unexpected repair costs that can be in the thousands of dollars, with MBP.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, GAP pays the difference between the balance owed on your loan and the amount the insurance company pays. Marine FCU has enhanced GAP coverage to include Auto Deductible Reimbursement. Auto Deductible Reimbursement is just what it sounds like . it reimburses your insurance deductible up to $1,000 per year! GAP can be purchased at a low, one-time cost that can be added into your vehicle loan.
Debt Protection allows you to choose the protection package that's right for you. Multiple protection options are available from involuntary unemployment, family leave, and hospitalization, to the more traditional death and disability protection. Having Debt Protection helps protect your credit rating during uncertain and stressful periods, and gives you peace of mind that some or all your loan payment will be paid should an unforeseen life event occur. Applying for Debt Protection is easy and usually done at the time of the loan application. The fee is generally included with the monthly loan payment.
