WHO IS SDFFCU?

As a Federal Credit Union, SDFFCU is a Not-For-Profit Cooperative Financial Institution. SDFFCU members share a common bond by virtue of employment with a fire department. We have joined together to provide savings and to create a trusted and reliable source of low cost credit, providing the best financial services available.

Membership means you are an owner, not a customer. At SDFFCU, we are a credit union of “People Helping People”, serving all the financial needs for our fire services family.


 
 

OUR GROWING FAMILY

By the end of that first year, the credit union had just over $1 million in assets. Since then, the credit union has grown to over $98 million in assets. The credit union currently has approximately 3700 members and one of the highest average savings balance per member among San Diego County Credit Unions. The credit union is also very strong financially with over $7.5 million in capital reserves. 


 
 

HOW YOU CAN BECOME A MEMBER

To become a member, you must open a Regular Savings Account with a minimum deposit of $25.00. This gives you voting rights and one share in the credit union. You must maintain this $25.00 minimum balance in your share account at all times. You will then have access to our many other financial services including share certificates, money market accounts, IRAs and a wide variety of low cost loan products, all designed to meet your financial needs.
