Our History and Mission Statement

Shuford Federal Credit Union was formed August 27, 1967. We are a non-profit financial co-operative owned by our members. We are federally-chartered and federally insured and regulated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the U.S. Government.

We offer a full range of financial products and services to our members and their families.

SFCU is owned by its members and governed by a volunteer, member-elected board of directors.
