TAPCO Credit Union has a long and rich history in Pierce County. Founded in 1934 by nine City of Tacoma employees, TAPCO has grown to over 27,000 members and several branches throughout Pierce County. Anyone who lives or works in the state of Washington is eligible for membership, and each member has a voice in how TAPCO operates. Member participation keeps TAPCO focused on the founding members' vision of ''People Helping People.''
TAPCO is a state-chartered credit union, organized under strict regulatory laws that are monitored and enforced by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the U.S. Government. The NCUA insures each member account up to $250,000 which means that your money is safe with TAPCO, just as with a traditional bank.
