Our History

On December 14th 1966, the Civil Service Association Credit Union was registered for business, with an initial membership base of 109 persons. Subsequently, the organization was renamed Public Service Association, and its purpose was 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 organization opened its doors to persons outside the public service sector, a decision was made to once again change its name to PSCU Co-operative Society Ltd. Additionally, it relocated to # 57-59 Dundonald Street, before finally settling at #24 Sackville Street, Port of Spain under the new name PSCU Credit Union Co-operative Society Limited.

Over the years as the Credit Union's membership expanded geographically, decisions were taken to strategically open additional branches in four areas across the country, which included Arima, San Fernando, Chaguanas and Tobago..

  • Branch               Opening Year                   Current Addresses

  • Arima#16 Cocorite Road, Arima1992
  • Chaguanas Ground Floor, Plaza De Montrose, #49 Main Road Chaguanas2009

The Credit Union has evolved into a vibrant, progressive and stable financial institution with an active membership of over 22,000 and group assets standing at an excess of $259M. PSCU continues to plan for the future by successfully investing in new technologies and innovations to support the ever changing needs of our membership. This was evident with the implementation of our Online Personal Banking system in 2017.
