Estacado Federal Credit Union History
On January 13, 1953, a small group of people from the Hobbs Municipal Schools joined together to establish a credit union to offer its members an opportunity to accumulate their savings and create a source of credit.
Since 1953, the credit union has experienced changes such as growth, new products & services, and technological improvements. In 1996, Conoco FCU in Hobbs and Hobbs Employees FCU joined to further expand our eligible membership.
We changed our name in 2001 to Lea Community Federal Credit Union (FCU) to serve all members who live, work, worship, or attend school in Lea County as well as family of existing members.
Lea Community FCU and Estacado Credit Union from Lovington merged in 2014 to become Estacado Federal Credit Union (EFCU). In 2018, we expanded our membership eligibility to include Gaines, Yoakum and Cochran counties in Texas and opened a branch in Denver City in February 2019 to also serve Seminole, Plains, Seagraves, and Morton Texas.
EFCU has expanded to a full service financial institution offering electronic services such as Online & Mobile Banking, Remote Deposit Capture (RDC), e-Statements, Bill Pay and Account Transfers to serve our members 24 hours a day.
As a not-for-profit, community-based financial institution, our goal is to continually offer superior rates and excellent member service. Visit one of our locations to open your account. When you join Estacado FCU, you become a member of our family and support your local community.
