Our Story

TEXAR is Where Your Friends Are

TEXAR Federal Credit Union is a “community first” credit union, serving our members in and around the Texarkana area since 1951.  Employing almost 100 employees, TEXAR includes one main branch and six branch offices in its service area.   All citizens of Cass, Bowie, Little River, Miller, Red River and Lamar Counties are eligible for membership.

Originally established as “Bowie County Teachers Credit Union”, TEXAR has gone through several name changes, including “Bowie-Cass Teachers Credit Union" in 1964, the “Teachers Federal Credit Union” in 1996, and finally “TEXAR Federal Credit Union” in 2001, as it remains today.  

Throughout our history, TEXAR strives to stay true to our mission: 

“To serve the financial needs of our members”

As a not for profit financial cooperative, we are always looking for ways to enhance the benefits received by our membership. This is in stark contrast to profit goals and shareholder pressures that define traditional banks.   At TEXAR, we analyze every aspect of our business to maximize value and to provide the highest possible dividend, as well as the most competitive loan rates.  It is particularly rewarding when we can combine new technology and operational efficiencies.

Some of the exciting technologies recently employed by TEXAR include our MyTEXAR Tellers. Launched in August of 2015, the MyTEXAR Tellers allow our members to have convenient access to a teller at any TEXAR drive-thru as well as several 'stand-alone' locations during extended hours.

Our MyTEXAR Tellers also now have the functionality to serve non-members as well with our ATM On feature. The ATM On feature allows members to choose whether they want to speak to a teller or simply complete an ATM transaction. Non-members will be able to utilize any MyTEXAR Teller for ATM transactions, just as they normally would at an ATM outside of their financial institution's network of ATMs.


MyTEXAR Tellers allow us to serve you from the hours of 7am-7pm Monday-Friday and 9am-3pm on Saturday!  Visit our locations page to find a MyTEXAR Teller near you!
