About BRECO

Credit Unions are not-for-profit member-owned financial cooperatives that offer members cost-effective financial alternatives to high-price banking services. At BRECO, we take our mission seriously to assist our member-owners build and secure their financial success. Being a not-for-profit, we return earnings back to members in the form of better interest rates, reduced or no fees and quality personal service; all because our focus is on serving our members and not on making profits.

BRECO, chartered in 1934, was first chartered by a group of utility employees from the Baton Rouge Electric Company, which merged with Gulf States Utilities in 1938 and then with Entergy in 1994. We are still a SEG based (non-Community Chartered) medium-size credit union serving 5,000 members and have $49 million in assets. The major SEGs or Select Employee Groups we serve are Entergy, CB&I (formerly The Shaw Group), DEMCO, MMR, and IBEW Local 995 (see our full SEG list below).
