Build Better Lives for Southern Californians Since 1934

The Wescom Credit Union Story

Helping Southern California Since 1934

For 85 years, Wescom has been helping Southern California's build better lives. Throughout the years, we've never lost sight of the fact that we were formed by our members, we're owned by our members, and we're here to serve our members.


13 Pacific Telephone employees pooled their resources of $65 and formed Telephone Employees Credit Union to help fellow telephone employees obtain hard-to-get loans.


Assets rise to $282,000 and members to 2,910.


The Credit Union emphasized a service culture and sought innovative ways to help members get the loans they needed during a time of war.


The first branch office opens in Santa Ana.


Lines of credit are offered for the first time, including seven new loan services.


Growth continues, reaching $500 million in assets, 80,000 members, and 10 branches throughout Southern California. New technologies — such as ATMs and Teller#Phone — started to appear. And for the first time, family members and employees of other Select Employer Groups are eligible to become members of the Credit Union.


The Credit Union changed its name to Wescom Credit Union to better reflect the more diverse companies and communities it was serving.


WeCare Foundation was founded by Wescom employees as a charitable, not-for-profit organization designed to help people in need through charitable giving & volunteerism.


The Credit Union experiences major growth in branch locations, loans, employment, and membership.


Wescom focuses on quality of service and products and gains momentum through the launch of Signature Membership and digital channels including eBranch and the mobile app.


With nearly 200,000 members, Wescom has more than $3.5 billion in assets and 23 branches throughout eight counties in Southern California.
