People's Trust Federal Credit Union exists for members to achieve financial prosperity to have better lives. Members will have: 

  • A full range of competitive financial products and services

Our core values 

We treat you like an old friend - smile, make eye contact, ask you about your day, and address you by name. If we don't know your name, by golly, we learn it. 

We find quick and clever solutions to solve problems and innovate for the future. There's more than one way. We'll find the best one for you. 

If we don't know an answer, we'll find it. We do our homework so we can be prepared to adapt to any situation. Passing the buck isn't an option. 

We're committed to helping you each and every day. We listen with the goal of guiding you to new and unexpected possibilities. 


Explore the timeline of Un-Banking. 


On February 23, 1935, 196 employees of Shell Petroleum Corporation and Shell Pipe Line Corporation, joined together with $5 each to establish Shell Employees Federal Credit Union. The employees contributed a total of $980 in assets since deposits were limited to $200, and loans to $50. 


Shell Employees Federal Credit Union relocates our headquarters to Houston.


Mr. William Henry Oatis, former CEO and Board Member, retires after 31 years of service. Angela McCathran accepts the position of CEO/President of Shell Employees Federal Credit Union on March 2001.


Shell Employees Federal Credit Union changes our name to People’s Trust Federal Credit Union and expands our membership to the City of Houston.


By expanding our products and services to the City of Houston, we have grown our membership and asset size considerably– we’ve come a long way since $50 loan limits.

In 2016, People's Trust was recognized by the Credit Union National Association for providing over $4.2 million in direct financial benefits to  nearly 30,000 members (at that time). That equates to saving members approximately $272 per member household and $823 for loyal, high-use member households.

Even through expansion, our focus has always been to provide high-quality financial products and services. As we grow, we want our members to do the same, which is why helping members financially prosper is our goal.
