Sydney Credit Union (SCU) is a member-owned credit union, which was established in 1963.

It was originally formed to serve City of Sydney council members, but expanded to include a number of other Sydney-based councils. Most of its branches are now located in the Western Suburbs of Sydney.

As a credit union, it is owned by members and not shareholders, which means profits go back into the business and are redistributed to members via lower fees and rates.

Pros:
  • Competitive rates.
  • Flexible payment options.
  • Extra repayments often permitted.
Cons:
  • Small branch network.
SCU customer service:

Potential SCU customers have access to the credit union’s mobile lenders. They can also use internet banking, contact the lender via email or phone the customer service line, which is attended to 6 days a week.
