December 14th 1966, the Civil Service Association Credit Union was registered for business, with an initial membership base of 109 persons and was subsequently renamed to Public Service Association; in order to assist members in developing the habit of thrift, whilst simultaneously providing ready access to affordable credit.
At the time of registration, the Credit Union was afforded free accommodation and other ancillary services, at the Civil Service Association’s building at #91 Abercromby Street, Port of Spain. Years later, the Credit Union acquired its own property at # 71 Pembroke Street, Port of Spain and changed its name to Public Services Association Credit Union.
As the organisation open its doors to persons outside the public service; this led to another change to PSCU Co-operative Society Ltd and the relocation to # 57-59 Dundonald Street, before finally settling home at #24 Sackville Street, Port of Spain under the new name of PSCU Credit Union Co-operative Society Limited.
Over the years as our membership expanded geographically, it herald the opening of additional strategically placed branches in San Fernando, Arima, Tobago and Chaguanas.
