Suncoast Credit Union is a credit union headquartered in Tampa, Florida, chartered and regulated under the authority of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) of the U.S. federal government.

Hillsborough County Teachers Credit Union was chartered on January 31, 1934, to meet the needs of teachers working in Hillsborough County. They amended their charter in 1953 to open membership to teachers in Citrus, DeSoto, Hardee, Hernando, and Pasco counties. By 1960, membership was opened to Charlotte, Levy, Manatee, and Sumter counties as well as to all employees of schools in counties their charter extended to. To reflect its changed field of membership, the credit union changed its name to Suncoast Schools Credit Union in 1975. In 1978, it converted to a federal charter and changed its name again to Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union. Suncoast continued to grow in the decades to come and now serves employees of schools in 15 counties as well as employees of over 1000 select employee groups.
