Westerra Credit Union

Banking - Financial Services
As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, Westerra is owned by all who have accounts at the credit union.  There are no stockholders – all proceeds are returned to members through higher dividends on savings, lower rates on loans, lower fees and enhanced convenience.  Each member has equal ownership regardless of how much money they have on deposit. Westerra is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Learn more about our leadership and our financial strength.

Our Story

Our credit union was formed by eight school teachers who pooled their funds in 1934 to be able to make loans to other teachers.  These visionary leaders created DPS Credit Union, a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned and controlled by the members who use its services.  Its purpose was to put the members first when offering financial services and treat them as valued owners. Today, the credit union remains focused on that same mission and purpose.

The credit union’s name was changed to Westerra Credit Union in 2006 to better reflect its growing and diverse membership.  DPS Credit Union and Safeway Rocky Mountain Credit Union merged in 2005, followed by the merger of Gateway Credit Union in 2006 and Jeffco Credit Union in 2009.
Westerra Credit Union is a growing, exciting, financially strong organization. We offer a wide variety of financial products and services to our members, and are known for our commitment to service excellence. In 2010, Westerra was named one of the Top 10 "Best Places to Work" by the Denver Business Journal.
