Guide to Pittsburgh Area Credit Unions

Credit Unions are financial institutions owned and controlled by the union’s members.  More of a populist way to do your banking, it’s no wonder credit unions appeal to Pittsburghers’ working-class, do-it-yourself sensibilities.  The Pittsburgh area is home to numerous credit unions, some have exclusive memberships and others more open.  The following is a list of many of the area’s largest credit unions.
