About Us

Oklahoma Federal Credit Union is a financial institution that was founded with the mission: not for profit, not for charity, but for service.

The credit union began as Safeway Oklahoma City Federal Employees Credit Union in March of 1951. In 1981, the Board of Directors decided the credit union needed a new location; and in March of 1982, the credit union was moved to its current main branch location (517 NE 36th St OKC, OK). The institution has faced several name changes since its establishment, but in 1987 the name was permanently changed to Oklahoma Federal Credit Union.

In September of 1991, the VA Medical Center Credit Union merged with OKFCU, and we retained that location as one of our permanent branches until December 2017.

By October of 1995, the Oklahoma United Methodist Credit Union had merged with OKFCU; and in April 2007, Santa Fe Credit Union also combined with OKFCU.

November 2011, the third branch location was opened up at the Dell facility. The Dell branch is still open today, and proudly serves the employees of the Dell Corporation.

The fourth branch came from the 2014 merge of Midwest City Credit Union with OKFCU when the Midwest City building became a permanent branch location.

The Midwest City Branch was then relocated in 2018 to it’s current location across from Alliance Health Midwest off of Parklawn Drive.

The newest branch was added to the OKFCU family in 2019 just outside of Yukon. The Westgate Branch is located on the bottom floor of the NTT Data building, and it open to the public.

Oklahoma Federal has seen many changes over the past 66 years. We’ve experienced outstanding growth thanks to the guidance and vision of the President/CEO and Board of Directors. In December of 1951, the credit union had 274 members and assets of $974. As of December 31, 2016, the credit union has grown to over 11,000 members with assets that total close to $118,000,000.

While a lot has changed in 66 years, our commitment to our members has not. We were founded from humble beginnings as a place where members could save and borrow at a reasonable cost. Here, you are not just another member and we are not just another credit union.

A Message from our CEO

As a member of Oklahoma Federal Credit Union, YOU should be proud of what YOUR credit union has accomplished. Oklahoma Federal is one of the highest rated credit unions in the country. Together, we have built a financial institution that remains a safe place to keep your money, despite the economic trials that face our country. Rest assured knowing that Oklahoma Federal has never participated in risky investments or lending. As a result, we have continued to grow and offer great loan rates, higher dividends and increased member services. The next time you are in a branch, be sure to look for the financial statements that are posted.

Virtually all credit unions are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund that is backed by the U.S. Government (like the FDIC). The NCUSIF insures a member’s account up to $250,000. Higher coverage is available for members who have a combination of individual, joint, trust, payable-on-death and other types of accounts. There is also separate coverage of up to $250,000 for IRAs. Above and beyond that, Oklahoma Federal provides each member with an additional coverage through Excess Share Insurance (ESI). All of this is to say, that as an Oklahoma Federal member, you have placed your money and your trust in a strong and safe financial institution that continues to work to serve its members. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me or the credit union. We will be happy to answer your questions.
