Texas DPS Credit Union was chartered on July 16, 1954, with 10 members and fifty dollars ($50) to serve Texas Department of Public Safety employees and their family members. The credit union’s first home was the desk drawer of Fritz Christian, Treasurer, at 5805 North Lamar in Austin, Texas. In October 1959, the credit union hired its first full-time manager. The second full-time employee was hired in March 1962.
Texas DPS Credit Union has expanded membership eligibility and grown steadily since those first 10 members. We now serve individuals across the state of Texas and some outside of Texas. Our field of membership has also expanded to include people from other types of public safety associations and anyone who lives or works in Austin, Texas.
At Texas DPS Credit Union, our goal has remained the same over the past 65 years, to be a financial resource for all our members. We strive to provide an experience that enables you, our member, to reach even your highest financial goals. We focus every day on educating, enhancing and empowering the lives of our staff, our members and our community.
Your vision. Our purpose. We are here to help you through every step of your financial journey.
