About Us

Your Credit Union of Choice


Our Mission

"To enhance the financial welfare and social responsibility of the membership by providing safe, competitive, economically sound products and educational service through professional management and competent staff under a democratic board of directors."


Our History

For over 56 years, Pelican State Credit Union has been providing financial services to individuals and their families throughout the state of Louisiana. Since opening our doors in 1956, we seek to embody our mission statement each and every day, providing innovative products and services, with a continued, dedicated focus on member loyalty.

Pelican State Credit Union was originally chartered as the Department of Hospitals Credit Union, located in downtown Baton Rouge. Our main membership served Louisiana Charity Hospitals, Mental Health Centers, and State Office Personnel. In 1988, we amended our name to "Pelican State Credit Union," to better represent our expanding field of membership.

We've since grown into one of the largest state chartered credit unions in Louisiana now serving over 34,000 members nationwide.

Despite an increase in size and service area, we still base our success on personal attention. Rest assured, our members' best interests are always at heart. We remain entirely committed to building stronger Louisiana communities, member by member — so you can attain the knowledge and resources you need to enhance your financial future.
