On July 9, 1953, eight congressional employees formed the credit union that would later become Congressional Federal Credit Union with just $40 in deposits. From humble beginnings in a single desk drawer in the Longworth HOB, Congressional Federal has grown into a full-service financial institution of over 46,000 members across the country and around the world.
Times have changed, but our mission hasn’t. Since day one, Congressional Federal has been committed to helping the people who serve on Capitol Hill achieve their financial goals. We understand that Capitol Hill is like nowhere else – its purpose, prestige, and pace of life set it apart from any other environment in the country. That deep understanding of life on the Hill and the people who serve here has shaped the way we do business.
We will provide innovative and affordable financial products and services, education, and community outreach of the highest quality within the Congressional FCU family which includes the House of Representatives, Congressional support offices and functions on Capitol Hill, in addition to affinity and non-affinity Select Employment Groups.
Congressional Federal’s mission is to provide basic financial services to all of our members with special emphasis on the deliverance of services to those in our field of membership who may lack financial mobility.
