Har-co Credit Union is built on the foundation of delivering a strong member focused experience.
View our pledge here.
Har-co is a credit union serving all of Harford County. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, attends school or has immediate family living in Harford County.
We were founded in 1955 originally as an educational credit union serving the needs the educators and students of Harford County Public Schools. In 2018, we expanded to offer our services to the entire community of Harford County.
Credit unions are financial institutions, like banks, except the members own the credit union. They are nonprofit entities that aim to serve their members rather than seeking to earn a profit. Credit unions often offer better savings rates, lower loan rates and reduced fees because of this.
