Current credit union law does not require a membership vote for a name change. However, the member-elected Board of Directors voted on and approved the new name. The Board is trusted by its members to make financially informed decisions for the success of the credit union.
A lot can change in nearly 70 years. We started out in 1955 as Naval Employees Corpus Christi Federal Credit Union (NECCFCU)—a name that said exactly who we served: the civil service employees of the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas.
Now, it’s time for a name that clearly states who we serve today. One that speaks to the way we welcome everyone who lives, works, worships or goes to school in our communities—making up our 200,000+ military and non-military members.
We're excited to officially introduce ourselves as Rally Credit Union.

An Honorable Evolution
We may have a new name and look, but we’re not leaving our legacy in the past. The concept behind this logo is merging three elements: the ribbon—a tie to our military roots, the forward arrow—a nod to our former branding symbol, and the “R” from Rally.
How We Rally
We’re all in, and ready to make a splash.

Frequently Asked Questions:
For two years, our team planned and researched extensively to choose the right name. Efforts included focus groups and interviews with staff, members, non-members, military and non-military to guide us through the renaming process.
We love our military, but we were not created for them or to be exclusive to them. Our love and respect for the military will remain as it always has, and the new name and branding will honor our legacy.
No, NavyArmy was not bought out and did not merge with another credit union. The NavyArmy Board of Directors, senior leadership, and staff made the decision to change the name.
While we loved our NavyArmy name, we learned that many people thought you had to be in the military to join. In addition, our credit union was often confused with Navy Federal Credit Union, which is military-only. We are deeply committed to the work we do here and believe the new name will make our services available to as many members as possible.
The name Rally says we’re all in. It represents the spirit of our credit union and what we’re most proud of: rallying behind members to help you achieve your financial goals. It’s positive, upbeat and a nod to our military past (think, “Rally the troops!”) And, most importantly: it welcomes everybody.
The name and some branding are the only things changing. That means you can expect branch signage, eStatements, debit cards, mobile apps, etc. to eventually be updated. But our mission, values and who we are at the heart of our credit union will stay the same.

The History Behind Our Name
We opened as Naval Employees Corpus Christi Federal CU to serve the civil service employees working at NAS Corpus Christi.
We grew immensely after a few strategic mergers and simplified our name to Navy Army Federal Credit Union.
We launched more branches, opened eligibility up to family members of current members and continued to grow!
We opened membership to anyone who lives, works, worships or goes to school in a community we serve.
We expanded our service area to the Rio Grande Valley by changing to a state charter and became NavyArmy Community Credit Union to clarify who we serve.
We began the careful process of updating our name and brand to further welcome everyone in the community.
