$16,000,000 REASONS PHILADELPHIA FEDERAL CREDIT UNION MEMBERSHIP IS THE SMART CHOICE.

PFCU SAVED ITS MEMBERS OVER $16 MILLION IN 2015.

We work hard to earn the honor of being your trusted financial partner. As your partner, we think it's important for you to know the value PFCU membership offers. We've always believed that we offer you a better overall value than banks, so we decided it was time to prove it.

Working with a national research firm, we compared our account rates and fees with the average rates and fees of leading banks in our primary market areas. When all the calculations were done, PFCU members collectively saved more than $16 million in 2015 simply by having their accounts with PFCU versus a leading bank. That's an average of $186 per member.

* Savings estimate illustrates projected savings for an entire year, regardless of when account was opened, and it was determined by using the difference between the current rates at PFCU and the average rates of leading financial institutions in your local market on October 27, 2015, as reported by Informa Research Services, Inc., Calabasas, CA, www.informars.com. Some national lenders were used for mortgage and comparisons. Although the information provided by Informa has been obtained from the financial institutions themselves, the accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

Savings were calculated within product types, comparing the current PFCU rate with the average financial institution rate for that particular product type. Only financial institutions with comparable rate tiers and pricing structures were used to determine an average rate within each product type. In some rare cases, deposit and/or loan relationships were compared to the most similar product for which market rate information was available. Rates are subject to change at any time without notice. Your actual rate is typically dependent on several criteria, including, but not limited to, your credit history and score, term of the loan, age of collateral and loan-to-value ratio on loans, as well as current and/or average balance on deposits.

The savings amount for all loan relationships was determined based on balances as of November 30, 2015. If your balance was not carried over month to month, your savings amount would be less.

Fees were also taken into consideration when calculating the benefit associated with certain account relationships, using the average fees charged for that particular account, as reported by Informa Research Services, compared with the fees charged at PFCU.
