Community Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative. It was formed under a state charter by a group of ten teachers back in 1953 in Titusville, Florida and was originally known as the Brevard County Teacher's Credit Union. Eight of the ten teachers signed a Certificate of Organization, and each of them subscribed to one share in the Credit Union (a total of $40). The efforts of the original shareholders William E. Weeks; Howard B. Jones; J. V. Revels; L. R. Williams; B. Frank Brown; Thomas A. Backus; R. L. Gillispie; and George W. Maxwell, Jr. formed the beginning of what would eventually become Community Credit Union. Today, Community Credit Union serves all residents of Brevard, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Volusia and Indian River counties.
The cooperative was formed to encourage savings by offering a stronger return on the members' savings than they could find elsewhere. The Credit Union then used those savings to make loans to other members at competitively low interest rates. This is still the basic concept of our operation.
Community Credit Union has maintained its strong financial stability even during economic downturns. We strive for a high level of operational efficiency in order to provide the maximum return to members.
At Community Credit Union, we continually strive to make a difference in our employee’s lives, both professionally and personally, by offering a world-class, highly competitive compensation and benefits package. Unlike most companies, CCU offers a pension plan that is fully funded by the credit union and provides up to 35% of an employee’s salary upon retirement. We also provide a 401(k) that matches up to 50% up to 6% of an employee's contribution; 100% paid health, dental, life insurance, AD&D, and long term disability for the employee; 100% tuition assistance; vacation and sick leave.
Community Credit Union of Florida (CCU) has a long, rich history in Brevard County of making a positive impact in its members' lives by providing quality products, financial education, and excellent member service. Our culture is one of family, compassion, and collaboration, which aids in developing and building positive relationships, both internally and externally, to provide growth, loyalty and financial well-being.
At CCU, we seek to hire individuals who are energetic, highly motivated, and want to make a difference in the lives of our members and the community.
