What Is a Credit Union?

While we offer the same products and services as Banks, we're actually not the same. The simplest way to define a credit union is we're a financial institution established to serve a group of people joined together by a common bond. Back in 1971, UFirst FCU got its start by serving the faculty and staff of SUNY Plattsburgh. At the time, the employer was the memberships common bond, but as time passed, we grew and now we work to serve the financial needs of Clinton County.

As a not-for-profit, UFirst Federal Credit Union belongs to its members - not a group of unknown stockholders. Any profits made are given back to our members in the way of better rates, lower fees and more services. Our Board of Directors is made up of volunteers from within our community. They're your neighbors and they oversee the direction of the credit union to make certain that we continue to grow and develop in a way that serves our members best while remaining true to our mission: Member Owned, Member Committed, Member First, UFirst.
