CEO Scott Woods
South Carolina Federal Credit Union has a connection with the military that reaches back to 1936 and our founding by five Charleston Navy Yard employees. We realize and value the dedicated service of our local military personnel and believe it should be rewarded. In appreciation of their efforts, South Carolina Federal is pleased to offer special pricing to active-duty military members through our new Military-Friendly Program.

The Military-Friendly Program allows active-duty military members, with an active-duty military ID, to receive a fee-free Premium Checking account, offering the following benefits:
  • 0.50% vehicle loan rate discount1
  • Free foreign ATM use2, cashier’s checks, instant issue debit card, debit card replacement, eStatements and Bill Pay
  • Premium phone service when you enter your account number when you call
  • Debit card CURewards® – opt in to earn points every time you make a purchase3
  • Tiered dividends earned, starting at $2,5004
  • Safe deposit box discount5

We are also thrilled to announce the grand reopening of our Naval Weapons Station branch last month. The branch, serving many of our local military members and located just outside the base in Goose Creek, celebrated with a free shred event and family fun day. If you haven’t been by to see our improvements, make a visit to see this branch of the future.

On behalf of South Carolina Federal, our employees and volunteers, we salute the members of the military who so diligently serve our country. Please feel free to browse through our website to learn more about this unique member benefit.
