History

Credit Union History

STAR Credit Union began in 1959 as a means to provide the employees of Pontiac Refinery, which later became CITGO Refinery, quality financial services. Over the past 50 years we have grown to include almost 100 additional companies that want to provide their employees the same benefits. What started out in a little office on the grounds of the refinery has grown to three full service office locations and 6,000 loyal members. The companies in our field of membership have expanded to include oil field related industries as well as the medical community and others.

We the Board of Directors, Staff and members alike, at STAR Credit Union are committed to the success of our credit union and take pride in what we have built together. After 50 years, STAR CU remains a very sound and financially strong credit union. With over 44 million in assets and a capital to asset ratio of 12.20%, STAR CU will be able to continue to offer our members multiple access, convenient locations and competitive products and services.

The Board of Directors at STAR CU has chosen to provide an additional $250,000 of savings coverage to qualifying accounts. This coverage is provided through ESI (Excess Share Insurance Corporation). Therefore, your savings is insured up to $500,000.
