About Us

History

history_picThe Credit Union idea began as an idealistic experiment.  The idea was simply that members could pool their savings and lend money to each other.  No longer are Credit Unions experiments, they are successes.  Serving our members is foremost, even when other financial institutions are unable to make loans to people, we go the extra mile to see that our members’ financial needs are met.

“Not for profit, not for charity, but for service” is the motto that Credit Unions still use today.  CommFirst Federal Credit Union is proud to share this belief with other Credit Unions.  We believe that members’ financial needs come first.

Credit Unions are the only democratically controlled financial institutions.  Only members may vote at the Credit Union annual meetings.

Our Credit Union operates under extensive and strict Federal regulations.  We are closely supervised and examined by NCUA, which is the governing agency responsible for assuring that we constantly protect the best interest of our members.
