Benefit from the Credit Union Difference

Why Become a Member?

When you're a member of Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union, you're not a customer. You're a part-owner in a local not-for-profit with your best interest at heart. Because we're not a bank, we aren't in it for the money. All credit union earnings get returned right back to you in the form of low interest rates on loans, high dividends savings accounts, and convenient member services.


Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Harrison or Hancock County. Members' immediate family are also eligible to join — including spouses, children, siblings, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, stepparents, stepchildren, stepsiblings, and adoptive family members.
