Oklahoma Federal Credit Union was founded in March 1951 as Safeway Oklahoma City Federal Employees Credit Union. In 1981, the Board of Directors decided the credit union needed a permanent location. In March 1982, the ribbon was cut and the doors to our current main branch location were open (517 NE 36th Street, Oklahoma City). In 1983, the name was changed to Safeway Oklahoma Federal Credit Union. In 1987, a new name was established: Oklahoma Federal Credit Union. September of 1991, V. A. Medical Center Federal Credit Union merged with us and a second branch location was established at the V. A. Medical Center. October 1995, Oklahoma United Methodist Federal Credit Union merged with us. Then in April 2007, Santa Fe Credit Union merged into Oklahoma Federal Credit Union and a third branch location was established in Shepherd Mall. In November 2011, a fourth branch location was opened at the Dell facility. (The Dell branch has restricted access.)
Over the past 62 years, Oklahoma Federal has seen many changes. We have experienced outstanding growth, thanks to the vision and steady management from the President/CEO and the Board of Directors. In December 1951, the credit union had 274 members and assets of $974.00. As of December 31, 2012, the credit union has grown to over 9,600 members and assets that total close to $92,000,000.
With a strong commitment to its members, Oklahoma Federal Credit Union strives to provide you with the professional financial services you need and the friendly, personal service you deserve. We are a full-service financial institution and always strive to serve you better!
While a lot has changed in 62 years, our commitment to our members has not. From our humble beginnings, we were founded to give people a place to save and a place to borrow at a reasonable cost. The motto of “Not for profit, not for charity, but for service” still rings true today.
