About Us

Go ahead, compare Academic Employees Credit Union to other financial institutions. You’ll find that AECU is at the head of the class, with a history of serving the Mid-Missouri academic community, as well as our Columbia neighbors.

Because AECU is a not-for-profit, member-owned credit union, our main goal is not to make money, but to help our members save theirs! We still offer all of the products and services you’d enjoy at a bank. However, you can generally earn higher rates on savings, pay lower rates on loans, and pay lower (and fewer) fees than you would at most banks.

But what really sets us apart is how we treat you. For more than 20 straight years, surveys by American Banker show consumers rate credit unions #1 in service among all financial institutions. Combine our superior service with the great savings you’ll enjoy, and AECU is the smartest choice for your savings, loans, checking and investments.
