About Us

84 Years of Being Houstonians Financial Partner

Texas Bay was founded on May 18, 1936, by Houstonians, for Houstonians. That means we work for our members. We take care of our members by using our net earnings for lower interest rates, higher dividends on deposits, low fees, and offer FREE products and services. Texas Bay succeeds by preserving a secure financial position, increasing membership growth, and maintaining high member satisfaction. 

Texas Bay was originally chartered as Houston Sinclair Refinery Employees' Credit Union and began operations out of the Sinclair Refinery plant. The first meeting of Sinclair Refinery Employees' Credit Union was held on Jun 3, 1936. Over the years, while Texas Bay Credit Union might have gone through a few name changes, we still hold our core values that began back in 1936. We are here for our members and take the role that our members have entrusted us with as their Financial Partner seriously.  There is no "I Can't" at Texas Bay Credit Union. We work tirelessly to provide the best service to our members and work to find each members tailored-made solution to help members reach their financial dreams.
