Wescom Credit Union expands field of membership to serve more Californians

Wescom announces expansion to include 13 new counties, extending its footprint into Central California

PASADENA, CA (September 19, 2023)Wescom Credit Union, on the heels of its Central Coast Federal Credit Union (CCFCU) merger news, has today announced that in addition to the eight Southern California Counties it currently serves, the Credit Union will now serve an additional thirteen counties in California.

Wescom, one of the largest community credit unions in the entire state, and a fixture in Southern California since 1934, has long served communities throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Imperial, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, including the UCLA community. Now, with the expanded geography, membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in any of the following 13 counties: Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Monterey, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, Stanislaus and Tulare.

“By expanding our field of membership in an adjacent market, we are able to serve more Californians and make a positive impact in additional communities,” stated Darren Williams, President and CEO of Wescom. “We are looking forward to this next stage of growth which aligns perfectly with our mission to exceed expectations in everything we do through innovative products and services.”

In the most populous state in the nation, Wescom’s field of membership now takes the Credit Union from the border with Mexico in the south all the way up to the Northern San Joaquin Valley, just below the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay areas. This means that Wescom membership is now available to close to 27.7 million Californians, representing more than 70 percent of the California population.
