About Us

Effective January 1, 2020, Westminster Savings and Prospera Credit Union officially merged. This is a very exciting time for both organizations as we move towards building a stronger credit union for our members, employees and communities. As a result of this merger, the two predecessor credit unions are now one legal entity, which will be legally and commonly known as Prospera Credit Union.

While this website may still bear the name and logo of Westminster Savings Credit Union, we are in the process of revising all print and digital materials to bear the name of Prospera Credit Union. We appreciate your patience during this transitional period.

About Us

For over 75 years, Prospera Credit Union has been a successful financial institution because of an unwavering focus on meeting the needs of our members, providing fulfilling careers for employees, and for giving back to the communities we serve.
