Our Mission: "We are committed to the success and financial well-being of our members and our community."
In the aftermath of the financial crisis, many people are turning a wary eye to their financial institutions. While consumers may not be tucking their life savings under the mattress as they did during the depression, most are concerned about the safety and accessibility of their deposits. They want to know who’s running their financial institution. How soundly is it managed? Are their funds safe and can they access them if trouble develops? As financial institutions merge or go completely online creating large and/or faceless institutions, it’s becoming more difficult for consumers to select a financial institution that can still provide personalized service along with a full range of financial products.
Who We Are
East River Federal Credit Union was founded in October 1956 through the vision of several early members who pooled their resources to create a credit union. Today, we are a healthy, growing, stable financial institution committed to the success and financial well-being of our members and our community.
What We Do
East River Federal Credit Union gives members the resources they need to achieve their financial goals and meet their daily financial needs. We are a full-service financial institution that offers a variety of low-rate consumer loans, credit cards, mortgages, and home equity line-of-credit loans in addition to many different types of savings, checking, and investment accounts. Through partnerships, we are able to offer members several different mortgage programs and insurance products. We also provide newsletters and Internet articles to give members helpful financial information.
