The AmeriChoice Tradition
AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union was founded in 1970 by a small group of IBM Corporation
employees. Through the years, we’ve grown by extending eligibility to the South
Central PA Community including Cumberland, Dauphin andPerry Counties. Today, we
are more than 15,000 members strong with assets exceeding $170 million.
The mission of AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union is to exceed our members’ expectations
and become their trusted partner in achieving their financial goals. We’re a full-service,
member-owned, not-for-profit financial institution striving to improve the economic
well being of our members’ lives. Our commitment to this goal extends beyond providing
the highest quality financial products and services at the lowest possible cost.
As a member, you have a voice in how AmeriChoice operates – your vote for members
of the Board of Directors makes an important contribution to our democratically-run
credit union. You will have access to the same financial products and services offered
by the nation’s largest banks. Best of all, credit unions are safe. U.S. deposits
are federally insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration,
a U.S. government agency.
As part of your community, we pledge to give back through our charitable work, community
partnerships and low cost products and services. We exist solely to help our members
and make their financial lives easier – we’re “People Helping People.”
