About Us

Who are the Members?
Five County Credit Union was founded by the employees of Bath Iron Works in 1956 and was then known as the "BIW Employees Federal Credit Union".  In 1993, the credit union converted to a state charter, and our name was changed to "BIW Five County Credit Union".  In July 2001, our name was further streamlined to "Five County Credit Union" to more accurately reflect our community field of membership. In 2006, our charter was expanded to allow us to serve three more counties. Five County Credit Union now serves those who live, work, or worship in the counties of Androscoggin, Cumberland, Kennebec, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, Somerset, Waldo & Knox counties.

WHAT IS A CREDIT UNION? TRADITION AND PHILOSOPHY
Following the traditional philosophy of credit unions, Five County Credit Union is a non-profit cooperative where members pool their financial assets to provide funds for loans and other financial services available to members only. As non-profit institutions, credit unions are unique in the financial world. Following state and federal regulations, credit unions are owned and operated by their members under the directions of a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the membership. Credit unions exist solely to provide financial services for their members. The universal philosophy of the credit union movement is: "Not for Profit -- Not for Charity -- But for Service." Members are the heart of the credit union and the sole reason the credit union exists. This is the key difference between credit unions and other types of financial institutions.

"EVERYTHING WE DO ... WE DO FOR YOU"
As a member/owner of Five County Credit Union you are encouraged to take an active role in the operation and performance of your financial institution. You can do this by attending the annual meeting and volunteering to serve on various committees of the credit union. The annual meeting also conducts elections each year for participation on the Board of Directors (elected for three-year terms). If you have the desire and dedication to make the commitment to serve on the Board of Directors, contact the nominating committee, contact the credit union, or email us for more information.
