Member-owned, 1st Ed Credit Union is a full-service financial institution serving school employees and their families in Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, Fulton, and York 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.

Our History

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 6,600 members – school employees, 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 recent name change 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.

We look forward to providing you and your family with the very best financial services.

Mission Statement

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.
