Open a checking account - we'll give you $100.

At 1st United Credit Union, we believe managing your money doesn’t have to be complicated. That’s why we’ve simplified our checking account and packed it full of “free”s and “no”s. Things like:

  • No monthly fee
  • No minimum balance requirement
  • No direct deposit requirement

Faster Account Opening

But we didn’t stop there. We’ve made it faster to open your account, too – online and in-branch.

Friendlier Banking

If you’re ready to simplify, visit us online at or at any of our East Bay branches. Our friendly staff is ready to assist you.
