Our History

In 1967, ten employees of the Office Products Division of IBM founded the IBM Austin Employees Federal Credit Union. From humble beginnings and collecting deposits in a brief case, we have continued to grow for the past fifty years into a community leader. In 2006, we changed our name to Amplify Credit Union and opened our membership to anyone who lives, works, worships, or goes to school in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties. You also qualify for membership if someone in your family (spouse, child, sibling, parent, grandparent, grandchild, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, or adoptive relationship) is currently a member. On January 1, 2017, Amplify transitioned from a Federal to a State chartered credit union which allowed us to expand our field of membership to serve the state of Texas, including members of associations that support worthy causes in the greater Austin area.

To be a leader within the Central Texas community, contributing to the sustainability of the region and creating a meaningful and positive social impact.
