Dominion Energy Credit Union has always been responsive to the specific needs of Dominion Energy employees in a number of ways, including:

  • Offering special loans through Dominion Energy CU to employees affected by natural disasters
  • Awarding scholarships to outstanding students every year
  • Accommodating workers during storms by offering extended services
  • Placing ATMs in company buildings that might be considered "too small" by bank standards

A midnight game of poker leads to what is now Dominion Energy Credit Union.

In 1940, a handful of Virginia Public Service Co. employees, who called themselves The Foreman’s Club, were in hot water after playing one too many hands of poker. They were short on cash when it came time to settle at the end of the night.

Back in those days, one couldn’t come by a small cash loan easily. The employees began looking into creating something called a “credit union” that would enable them to save and borrow with each other, at better rates than elsewhere. Dominion Energy Credit Union was formed solely to help employees take control of their finances and make a better life for themselves and their families.

Personal Service and Trusted Advice

In our early years, Dominion Energy Credit Union was run out of Dominion Energy’s Payroll Department. From the mid 1960s to 1980s, a single employee, Mary Broaddus, maintained all credit union business in a box of files she carried on a rolling cart. The only way to access money was to ask Mary for a check. Over the years, Mary became known for her incredible personal service and sage advice about the value of saving over spending.

Exponential Growth with the Same Member Focus

In the 1980s, the credit union started on its current path of consistent growth as we added a full range of services, expanded membership to include retirees, contract workers, and family members, and enhanced convenience through the latest technologies. Our mission, though, remains: to improve the financial well-being of our members by offering products and services that benefit them.

Dominion Energy Credit Union continues to evolve to meet members' needs. 

Members can access their accounts anytime, anywhere with our digital services and through an expanded list of ATMs, shared branches and service centers nationwide. The credit union now also offers several mortgage options to employees in VA, NC, SC, and OH, making it more affordable than ever to buy a home.

While we continue to grow and add new services to meet the changing needs of our members, we remain committed to treating each member as an individual. Join today, and discover The Dominion Energy Difference.
