Employment Benefits

Welcome to the Providence Family!


Are you ready to lead a life of Financial Wellness?

Did you know your new job comes with its own credit union? We are Providence FCU—a credit union for Providence employees, retirees, and families. We specialize in financial services that put healthcare workers first—like our Caregiver Loan, which helps cover the cost of life’s emergencies. We also offer all of the everyday services you’d expect, like credit cards, savings accounts, personal loans, and more.

Because we support Providence workers in clinics, hospitals, administrative offices, and care facilities across multiple states, we’ve invested in digital platforms that help members manage their accounts or talk with a real person anytime, anywhere.

And because we’re nimble and not-for-profit, we can skip many of the frustrations you’ll encounter at larger banks. No fees that show up out of nowhere. No interest rates that jump when no one’s looking. Just a dedicated collective of financial pros ready to help you make the most of your money.

As a new employee of Providence Health and Services, you are eligible to join Providence FCU. Your family members can join, too. And once you’re a member, you can stay as long as you like—even if you leave the Providence network.

  • Upon completion of these steps, submit a Letter of Closure to your old financial institution.
