Our History

Fairfax County Federal Credit Union began operations in April, 1958. The credit union was established to serve the financial needs of Fairfax County Government employees.  As the credit union grew in deposits and loans, additional staff was hired and the credit union moved into its first credit union owned facility in October, 1981.  At that time, the credit union had over $7.5 million dollars in assets.  Around this time, Fairfax County Government began to grow substantially and so did the membership in the credit union.  With the addition of new members and demand for new financial products and services, the credit union outgrew its first facility and began to occupy a new and much larger facility in July, 1992.  At that time, the credit union was growing at over 15% a year and continued to add more services and staff to accommodate the growing membership and met the requirements of a more sophisticated county workforce.

During the late 1990’s the credit union recognized the importance of serving the county’s Hispanic workforce with financial services not always available in other financial institutions.  A key component of that outreach to the Hispanic community was to hire bilingual credit union staff members and to provide Spanish language automated services when possible.

By the end of the 1990’s the credit union had yet again outgrown its facility and began to look for additional office space.  By early 2000, the credit union had identified a site for a new office to accommodate its contained successful growth.  A new office facility was opened in April 2003.  At that time, the credit union was serving over 17,000 county employees and family members in addition to other affiliated groups.  Assets had reached $120 million dollars and the credit union began offering real estate loans and investment services.

In July 2004 FCFCU was given approval to become a community chartered credit union serving those who live, work, do business in, worship, attend school and/or volunteer in Fairfax County.  County residents embraced the opportunity to take advantage of Fairfax County Federal Credit Union and the Credit Union continued to grow ending 2008 over $220 million dollars in assets

The year 2008 marked a significant milestone for Fairfax County Federal Credit Union itself- our 50th anniversary of operation.  Through a half century of economic cycles, Fairfax County Federal Credit Union has and will continue to withstand the test of time.  Unchanged is our commitment to member service.  We believe our membership deserves the highest level of service and a staff with a deep desire to help.
