As the country's largest credit union for school employees, SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union is proud to serve this extraordinary group of individuals and their families.
Membership is open to employees and retirees of eligible primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities in the 10 counties of Southern California and their immediate family members (spouses, domestic partners, parents, siblings, children, grandparents, and grandchildren).
Many of our Members benefit from low-interest auto, home and personal loans, credit cards, savings and share certificates (CDs), free checking, insurance, retirement planning, investments, and more. Many others are helped through the assistance we provide the community, including financial literacy programs, scholarships, donations, and educational grants.
In 2013, we provided $59.6 million in direct financial benefits to our Members.* These benefits are equivalent to an annual savings of $106 per Member, or $202 per Member household.** And "high use" Member households saved an average of $689 a year compared to banks in California.***
SchoolsFirst FCU's mission to provide wold-class personal service and financial security to school employees and their families has not changed since we began in 1934.
