Serving Firefighters since 1948, Boston Firefighters Credit Union is a professional organization dedicated to providing a wide range of financial services for the benefit of its members.
The complete line of products and services offered by Boston Firefighters Credit Union (BFCU) makes us the right choice for your primary financial institution. We have convenient checking and savings accounts, cutting edge online banking products and competitive loan options.
Our mission is to give our members the opportunity to enhance their financial well being by offering simple, relevant products and services at a consistently honest value. We are the financial institution that you can trust for all of your banking needs. We’re able to do this because BFCU is a non-profit organization. Once you join the credit union you are a member, not just a customer and as a member you have an equal share of ownership. This affiliation means that as the credit union prospers so do you. Instead of paying stockholders, credit unions exist to serve their membership and any earnings are returned to the members in the form of better rates, low fees and more products and services.
This is what distinguishes BFCU from other financial institutions. Our policies and strategies are determined by a Board of Directors who are elected from among the membership and serve without pay. Thus Boston Firefighters Credit Union is truly owned and operated by our members.
Credit unions also adhere to the philosophy of "people helping people". We were established to help people of modest means achieve financial success and to educate our members on financial matters. Sixty years later, we are still serving our members under these same guidelines.
