Our Story

Vermont Federal Credit Union was founded in 1953 as the Burlington Postal Employees Credit Union and, just a short time later, was renamed to the U.S. Government Employees Credit Union of Chittenden County. Our connection to these roots remains strong as many government employees in Vermont are still loyal members of the Credit Union. In 1990, members voted to convert the Credit Union from a state charter to a federal charter and the Credit Union became Vermont Federal Credit Union in 1991. After a series of expansions and mergers, we became a community chartered credit union in 2001 which meant that membership was no longer limited to just government employees.

Today, Vermont Federal Credit Union operates under a community charter, opening the possibility of membership to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in nine Vermont counties including: Addison, Caledonia, Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans, and Washington counties. Family members of current members are also eligible for membership.

Our mission is to make a decided difference in the lives of our members. By getting to know you, we can provide ongoing financial education and support on a wide variety of products and services that fit your unique situation. We are able to do this, in part, due to the guidance of our volunteer Board of Directors, who are responsible for the general direction and control of the Credit Union, and our Supervisory Committee, who is responsible for the annual audit as well as periodic operational audits throughout the year. We also have a group of seasoned employees and management staff that strive to provide the best possible product offerings and service for our members. Our volunteers and staff make our member-owners our number one priority.

We are proud of our history, our values and are excited about where we are going in the future. One thing is for sure: we will always be in Vermont and dedicated to the Vermonters and the communities in which we serve.
