Our Mission

To improve the lives of our members through safe, competitive products and educational services.

Our History

For over 59 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 was originally chartered as the Department of Hospitals Credit Union, located in downtown Baton Rouge. Our main membership served included 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 40,000 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.
