New Credit Union Opens In Lexington

South Carolina Federal Credit Union, that has been serving members for over 80 years, is now in Lexington!

With 480 employees throughout the state, South Carolina Federal Credit Union prides themselves on providing a full range of products and services that are designed to help improve the financial conditions of their members' lives. Because they are a not-for-profit organization, they can put their members' needs first and work with them to find solutions that will fit their unique situations and goals.

Through SCF Solutions*, a subsidiary of the credit union, they are able to provide auto insurance, home insurance, and life insurance to their members, as well as business insurance and employee benefit consultative services for their business members.

They are continually evaluating growth opportunities where they can best help underserved areas and their membership. Cassandra Paden, Financial Center Manager of the newest branch, says she is very excited about what the future holds for us and our members!

As the manager, Cassandra shares the most gratifying thing about her job is getting to help people. She doesn't have to worry about satisfying the needs of investors or stakeholders – She has a real opportunity to get to know her members on a personal basis and help find ways to make their money go further, regardless of their stage of life. She says, “I've spent 12 years at South Carolina Federal. In my time here, I've learned how great it is to work for an organization that truly values its employees and cares about us as people, not just staff members. After spending so much of my career in customer service, I've learned to treat people with grace and compassion. I know that a simple smile from a stranger can turn someone's whole day around.”

Lexington is a dynamic area that is quickly growing. Though SC Federal has been in Columbia for 35 years, they are thrilled to be able to serve the Lexington residents directly, offering a number of services for other businesses, from checking and savings products** to more complex solutions, and even a Bank at Work program that lets employers' give their staff easy access to their bank accounts, lending services and financial education, without leaving the office.
