The story of Bellwood Credit Union

The Q.M. Depot Federal Credit Union, now named Bellwood Credit Union, was chartered in 1951 to serve the government and civilian employees of Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) in Chesterfield County Virginia. In 2012, Bellwood CU merged with, and became a division of, Henrico Federal Credit Union; however, the the Bellwood CU name was retained to further acknowledged the commitment to DSCR and the surrounding community.       

A credit union built on the core principle of relationships, we strive to provide the highest level of financial service to our members while demonstrating the traditional credit union philosophy of People Helping People.

A new era in financial services

Recently, we have introduced additional services and products; many of which are digitally focused. Mobile Banking, Mobile Deposit, and Mobile Wallet allow you to have convenient options to meet your banking needs. In addition, eSignature, a program introduced in 2017, makes signing loan documents fast and convenient. We currently serve over 30,000 members, have over $255 million in assets, and were voted as one of the top 3 credit unions of 2015 in the Richmond area by Richmond Magazine.

Although we have seen growth in all areas of the credit union throughout the years, we still believe in a member-first mentality, remaining locally focused and working together to meet your financial needs. We invite you to learn more about joining our credit union and experiencing the benefits of becoming a Bellwood CU member.
