Member-owned, 1st Ed Credit Union is a full-service financial institution serving school employees and their families in Adams, Cumberland (except West Shore, Camp Hill, East Pennsboro, Mechanicsburg, and Cumberland Valley), Franklin, and Fulton counties. We also serve the employees of a variety of partner companies within this area. If you work for one of the school districts or partner companies we serve, you’re eligible to become part of our financial family.
We began from the aspirations of founding fathers Roger G. Mowrey, D. Frank Stewart, Ralph I. Shockey, and Jerry Allen. Their vision became reality when we opened our doors in 1938 as Franklin County Teachers Credit Union – laying the groundwork for our innovative and thriving credit union. Today, we serve more than 6,200 members – school employees, students, and their families, and a growing array of employees from our partner companies.
We’ve seen many changes during our history by expanding to become a full-service financial institution. We’ve grown to serve a multitude of school districts and employees of neighboring companies. Our name change in 2010 reflects our growth and fresh approach to serving you. 1st Ed Credit Union represents who we are today and our core philosophy since our beginning.
Our purpose is to provide our members with quality and diverse services, as well as personal attention to their financial needs. We strive for continued growth while maintaining financial stability.
