Our Mission & History

Philadelphia Federal Credit Union was founded in 1951, originally to serve the financial needs of Philadelphia municipal employees. Today, with more than 112,000 members and assets in excess of $900 million, we are among the top six 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.


I have been a customer for over 17 years.  PFCU has competitive rates, personable customer service, and your loan processes are very user friendly.
