About Us

At PFCU, we’ve got a pretty clear-cut philosophy. We’re not here for our profit. We’re here for yours. And from the very beginning, that has made the difference for us and every one of our members..

About PFCU

It is our fundamental belief, and the pride of PFCU, that our members and employees are the real owners of this institution. That’s why we work so hard to help them achieve their financial goals and see their families thrive. And why we reinvest all our profits back to improve our services, reduce our fees, and keep our rates competitive.

We believe in helping people. Pure and simple. And that might seem like a radical idea, but trust us - it isn’t. It’s just a good one.


PFCU’s Mission and History

Philadelphia Federal Credit Union was founded in 1951, originally to serve the financial needs of Philadelphia municipal employees. Today, with more than 116,000 members and assets in excess of $1 billion, we are among the top ten credit unions in the area, serving the owners, employees and directors of more than 400 organizations throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Our mission is to provide for the financial well-being of our membership through a dedicated and unique combination of professional and personal service. As a member-owned institution, we will invest daily in building one-on-one relationships with our membership community through uncompromising service, convenience and a complete offering of competitive financial products and services. Since our very first day, we've helped ordinary Philadelphians achieve their goals. We've helped them open businesses, and educate their kids. We've helped teach them about how to handle their money better, and how to save for the future. And it remains our continued ambition to become the leading credit union in the Delaware Valley, in recognition of our commitment to their ownership and as stewards of their financial independence.
