About MembersFirst

Established in 1953, and named by and for its members, MembersFirst Credit Union has a tradition of serving those who serve others. The vast majority of our members provide daily care and nurturing to our loved ones. We proudly partner with some of the best healthcare facilities in the state of Georgia as well as outstanding school systems in the counties we serve. Our commitment to our members is unwavering. Regardless of our growth, we are committed to providing the best financial care to those who choose to bank with us.

MembersFirst is a not-for-profit financial cooperative insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). We offer a full suite of financial services specializing in savings and checking accounts, consumer loans, credit cards and mortgages. MembersFirst is dedicated to the credit union philosophy of people helping people. The service we deliver rests on three pillars: Service that exceeds member expectations, integrity without exception and working together as a team to achieve optimum results for our members. We are not just another bank or financial institution.

Like our name says, our promise at MembersFirst Credit Union is to put the concerns and welfare of our members first, ahead of all other considerations. With our members’ best interest in mind, we seek innovative ways to grow the credit union and deliver financial services that meet the changing needs of our members at every stage of life.
