I have been an Erie Federal Credit Union member for approximately 40 years. About 20 years ago I discovered just how fortunate I was to be a member, when I found myself in the middle of an unexpected divorce. Even though I was in a financial tailspin the Credit Union stood by me ‘unconditionally’ and provided the necessary support to help me get back on my feet financially. Erie Federal Credit Union is all about supporting its members and the Erie community and is evidenced by their beautiful new office built in the City center. They invest here while so many other businesses are leaving; it truly shows that Erie Federal Credit Union cares about Erie. ”
