Joining a Credit Union is Easy! Become a Member Today!

When you join Erie Federal Credit Union, you become a member not a customer. As a member
owner, the focus is on serving you and your financial needs. Unlike banks, credit union profits are returned
to you through better rates and lower fees. Erie FCU was formed to serve our members not to earn profits for shareholders.

What is a Credit Union? Credit Unions are not-for-profit cooperatives that exist solely to provide financial services to their members. They offer more than just credit, and they're not about unions-you can join one! Credit Unions are local. Your money stays in the local community.

How are they different thank banks? Members, not shareholders, own Credit Unions. That means all the profit that Credit Unions do bring in goes right back to the members in the form of dividends, rebates and lowered interest rates.

Erie Federal Credit Union is not a bank, savings and loan, or brokerage house. We are a full-service federally insured credit union serving members who live, work, worship or attend school in Erie or Crawford County, Pennsylvania. Since 1936, we have honored our mission to responsibly deliver a wide range of financial services to meet the needs of our membership. We serve our members and community with spirit, compassion and heart.

Our easy-to-use online application can be completed in just a few minutes. If you have specific membership questions, please contact us.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you:
When you open an account, we will ask you for your Name, Address, Date of Birth, and other Information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask to see your Driver's License or other Identifying Documents.
