Sea Air Federal Credit Union was founded in 1952 to provide affordable financial services. Today we serve more than 7,800 members including: active military, retired military, reserves and civilians working or living on the base (in Seal Beach Weapons Station, Los Alamitos Joint Training Base, and Corona Naval Facility), residents of Sunset Beach, City of Seal Beach employees, and members of USA Water Polo.
As a not-for-profit cooperative, income earned by the Credit Union is returned to the members. That means we provide you with an outstanding selection of loan options with the lowest rate possible. Whether you are trying to finance the car of your dreams or buy the first car for your teenager, plan a vacation or plan for college tuition, our lending officers can help you determine what loan choice is better for you.
No matter where you live, work or travel, you will always have acces to your account with our convenient services.

What is a credit union?
A credit union is a cooperative, not-for-profit financial institution organized to promote financial well being or savings and provide credit to members. It is member-owned and controlled through a board of directors elected by the membership. Members of the credit union make up the board of directors. The board serves on a volunteer basis and may hire a management team to run the credit union. The board also establishes and revises policy, sets dividend and loan rates, and directs certain operations. The goal is not to make a profit but provide a safe, convenient place for members to save and borrow at reasonable rates. To learn even more about credit unions visit www.MyCreditUnion.gov
