About Metro

For 88 years, Metro Credit Union has been providing financial services to communities throughout Massachusetts. As one of the largest credit unions in the state, Metro has $1 billion in assets, more than 170,000 Members, and is able to serve anyone in Essex, Middlesex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Plymouth, Barnstable or Worcester counties. As a full-service credit union, Metro offers all of the financial products and delivery innovations that you'd expect from a large financial institution.

Metro has 15 branches conveniently located in Boston, Burlington, Chelsea, Framingham, Lawrence, Lynn, Melrose, Newton, Peabody, Salem and Tewksbury. Metro is also the credit union for over 1,800 companies in Massachusetts and their employees.

How we're different   

Founded in 1926 and headquartered in Chelsea, Massachusetts, Metro Credit Union is a cooperative financial institution, owned by and operated for the people who use and benefit from our products and services.  We’re different from banks because we are a non-profit cooperative that is dedicated to the financial success of our members; and not focused on paying dividends to stockholders or maximizing profits for shareholders.  The money we bring in is reinvested in you, our members, through better rates and lower fees – which means more money in your pocket!

The philosophy of Metro Credit Union is “people helping people.”  Each member is an equal owner, regardless of how much money is deposited with the credit union.  To join Metro Credit Union, simply open a savings account with a $5 deposit and enjoy the benefits of membership.
