Southwest 66 Credit Union began back in late 1948 through a combination of efforts from the Natural Gasoline Department and Mr. Neal Wood, the Treasurer from a local credit union, Phillips Oil Company District FCU.
In 2015 Southwest 66 is celebrating its 66th anniversary. We are looking forward to continuing our legacy of service to the community and our members.
The last five years have brought about tremendous change in Southwest 66 Credit Union, and has placed the credit union in a better position than ever before. 2012 was a record year for the credit union financially, hitting the highest net income mark in it’s history. This was surpassed again in 2013 and 2014, with $85 million in assets today. Southwest 66 Credit Union was recognized by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) as the 2014 Community Credit Union of the Year for its exemplary principles and service. All of this is happening as the credit union looks forward to celebrating it’s 66th anniversary in 2015.
Through the hard work of the Board of Directors, and the staff’s incredible level of dedication, the future of the credit union is brighter than ever. With a recent awarding of the prestigious Juntos Avanzamos (“Together We Advance”, certifying a credit union’s commitment to the Hispanic Community) designation, a whole new market will be served by the credit union. Our message remains, “How can we change your life today? In 2015, we will offer you “66 Reasons” as we celebrate 66 years of serving the Permian Basin.
