Cheers to 60 years!

60th Anniversary

In the fall of 1962, a handful of Baltimore County government employees met to discuss a way to help secure a better financial future for the county’s workforce.

They submitted their applications and requested a formal charter to set up a -member-owned, non-profit financial organization where county workers could save their money and borrow funds at reasonable interest rates.

On January 15, 1963, their vision became a reality, and the Baltimore County Employees Federal Credit Union was established.

Sixty years later, the credit union has grown considerably—from a small office in the county office building to three branch locations serving 29,000 members; and assets over $500 million.

THANK YOU to our most valuable asset—our members—for your loyal and steadfast support.
