Who Can Join?


At California Bear Credit Union, you’re more than just an account holder – you’re a member of a cooperative organization that’s committed to your best interests! Because we are a co-op, we serve a group of people who share a common bond.

You are eligible to become a member of California Bear Credit Union if:

  • You are employed by the State of California.

  • You are an employee one of our sponsor companies.

  • You are employed by an organization that qualifies for United Defense Subsidiary membership.

  • You live, work, worship, or attend school in one of our Metro Los Angeles community zip codes.

  • Anyone in your immediate family is a current member.

Once you become a member, you can stay a member as long as you maintain an active Savings Account with us (even if you change employers, move to a different zip code, or retire). We’re here to support you for life.

Joining California Bear Credit Union is easy!
