Our HistoryFrom their early origins, credit unions were unique depository institutions that were created, not for profit, but to serve members as credit cooperatives, which are organizations owned by and operated for the benefit of those using its services. The earliest cooperatives date back to the beginning of the 19th century. Copper Basin Federal Credit Union was established in 1967 as a cooperative for the workers of Cities Service, the copper industry in Copperhill, TN. In the beginning, the Credit Union’s field of membership was limited to employees of Cities Service and their families. However, seeing the demand for alternative financial institutions, Copper Basin Federal Credit Union sought approval from the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) to broaden its service area.
Today, our charter allows us to service any and all individuals with a connection to Polk County, TN or Fannin County, GA. Still a small, hometown financial institution, Copper Basin Federal Credit Union offers an attractive alternative to other local financial institutions. We strive to meet the financial needs of all our members, and in doing so, we are able to offer a number services to you...our members...our owners.
