SAN ANTONIO and AURORA, Colo. (4/22/09)--Officials of the San Antonio-based Security Service FCU (SSFCU) announced Monday that it merged with Aurora Catholic Federal CU (ACFCU). Approved by the National Credit Union Administration, the merger became effective March 31. The ACFCU board of directors voted to join operations with SSFCU to provide improved and expanded products and services that would be more accessible to its members in its field of membership--parishioners of Catholic parishes, and schools and organizations that serve Catholic parishioners in Aurora. The ACFCU board concluded that Security Service’s products and services, service delivery channels, and locations would provide its members improved access to financial tools and growth opportunities. SSFCU’s field of membership includes the Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Corpus Christi Catholic dioceses. SSFCU has more than $5 billion in assets and more than 680,000 members. As a result of the merger, Security Service gained an additional $13.7 million in assets and more than 2,200 members. Security Service also gained a service center with the addition of the former ACFCU location in Aurora, its sixth location in the Denver area. The credit union operates 13 other Colorado locations, including Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Fountain. Security Service has operations in South Texas with 32 service centers in and around San Antonio and other South Texas areas, including Corpus Christi and the Rio Grande Valley.
