TDECU is a Member-owned credit union, founded over 60 years ago by a group of Dow employees who wanted a better way to bank. In the spirit of the cooperative, credit union movement, we remain committed to those looking to be their financial best.
Membership is open to students, faculty, staff and alumni of the University of Houston.
TDECU will fund $5 for your new savings account and $1 into your new checking account to give you all the benefits of membership!
Use our online application to open your savings account and you can open your checking account at the same time.
You can easily add funds to your accounts with a transfer from your current bank or with a debit/credit card.
Once your accounts are open, you can immediately enroll in Online Banking. It's that simple.
Better Savings Rates
TDECU gives you access to a variety of savings and checking products such as Certificates of Deposit, Money Market and traditional savings accounts with higher interest rates than a bank.
Lower Credit Card and Loan Rates
We offer competitive interest rates on credit cards and loans.
Convenient access and service
TDECU offers powerful online banking, bill pay featuring PopMoney® and mobile apps for iOS and Android that let you access your accounts on your own time.
The credit union difference
Let’s face it: traditional banks are broken. With high fees, poor customer service and cookie-cutter financial products and services that aren’t tailored to customer needs, banks have lost touch. It's no wonder why hundreds of people make the switch to credit unions annually.
TDECU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative where you are an owner, which means there are no corporate stockholders looking for a return. Instead we pass the profits on to you, our Members in the form of lower fees and higher returns on deposit accounts.
