Our History

Our History

Austin-based. Texas-bred.

United Heritage opened its doors in 1957 as Military Federal Credit Union, offering military personnel savings and loan services. In 1969, our name changed to Bergstrom Federal Credit Union and we expanded our service offerings and increased our overall membership base. By 1993, the Credit Union was given the opportunity to expand our membership base to include hospitals and hospital affiliates, along with select employer groups, allowing us to grow into United Heritage Federal Credit Union. Changing from a federal charter to a state charter in 1997, we’re now open to the Central Texas, Austin and Tyler communities, enabling us to help more people than ever.

What this means for you, the member.

Since opening our doors, we’ve worked hard to better service our communities, establishing a foundation of stability and security. As a UHCU member, you’ll benefit from the lower rates and higher yields we’re able to offer as a not-for-profit financial cooperative without losing the products and services you’d expect from a big bank. Committed to your success, we’re ready to be your financial partner.

Our People

Much more than our branch locations and our online/mobile presence, United Heritage is about people and personal relationships. A financially sound financial institution first and foremost, every member of our team – from our Board of Directors to our CEO to our Member Service Reps – is empowered to deliver our personalized approach to managing your money.

Board of Directors

As United Heritage members themselves, each Board member is personally invested in one main goal: ensuring UHCU continues to provide superior, personalized service to every member, while remaining financially sound.

Our People

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

United Heritage Credit Union believes in sustainable strategies that support environmentally friendly, socially responsible & transparent equality focused governance while preserving effective cost management as well as a strong emphasis on net income.  While United Heritage works to support our ESG standing, we must keep in mind that investments which may be common in other classifications of financial institutions are not found here at UHCU per regulation. 

In everything we do, we always operate with uncompromising ethics and the highest levels of integrity. We believe in exemplifying a strong corporate responsibility through the following framework.
