Say hello to Dolores! Dolores and her late husband Gene became our 90th membersback in the 1950's. Dolores is 95 years young and continues to volunteer at a local Santa Ana hospital (since the mid 90's). Dolores is a longtime resident of Santa Ana as well as a WWII Veteran (1943-1945 - Navy Wave). Dolores was born in Santa Paula and moved to Santa Ana when she was 2 yrs old and has lived, gone to school, worked and retired in Santa Ana. Dolores is an active senior who takes advantage of many of SAFCU's products and services including SAFCU's technology-friendly Online Banking and Bill Payer. Dolores enjoys banking with SAFCU because of the convenience and great member service. The SAFCU Team thanks Dolores for her support and longtime membership!!

"I have been banking with SAFCU for 15 years and I would like to take a moment to mention the professional service I received recently from one of your employees. I had a couple banking/loan requests and was referred to Maria Hafferkamp. She was extremely helpful, polite and responsive. She worked diligently to help me resolve my issues and even offered additional banking solutions, which I selected. She was always friendly and had a pleasant disposition. I have banked at SAFCU and have never once received anything other than professional service.

Please also convey my deepest appreciation to Marisa Martinez, who has helped me so many times over the years. She, and her staff, are the reason I will never leave this bank. You guys all do such a great job."

Thank you, Pete


"I have been a member of the credit union for 20 years, and I love SAFCU. I am always impressed with the member service and information accuracy that I receive from everyone - tellers, loan officers, and management alike. No other financial institution seems to care the way that Santa Ana FCU does.

The Vice President of Operations, Marisa Martinez is the best of the best, greeted with a smile, immediate response, and always available to help. I also love the convenience of their online banking. I give Santa Ana FCU 5 stars! My whole family enjoys being members there too!"


Rosie is the Office Manager for the Santa Ana Police Officers Association.
