Meet your President
As a member of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, you are an equal owner of this not-for-profit financial services organization. The balanced variety of savings and loan options here at Fort Knox Federal offers members the opportunity for long-term financial security. Fort Knox Federal also provides information to help you, our members, better manage your personal finances.

Unlike a bank, your Credit Union is owned and directed by its members and has no outside stockholders or paid Board of Directors. In fact, your Board members are all non-paid volunteers who have been elected by their fellow members to guide Credit Union policy. And unlike banks, Fort Knox Federal members typically receive higher dividends on savings, pay lower interest rates on loans and are charged reduced or no fees for various services.

Founded more than 50 years ago, Fort Knox Federal Credit Union continues to be an organization made up of people, not money. As a cooperative financial service, members pool their savings, providing funds from which other members borrow. The earnings from these loans provide income to pay dividends and savings and support operations. As a member of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, you are entitled to use any of the excellent services offered. And becoming a member is simple! If you live, work or worship in any of our selected service communities, you're eligible for membership. Just stop by any of our conveniently located fourteen branches to see if you are eligible for membership.

I encourage you to take a moment to review our newly enhanced web site outlining our services and benefits. As you will see, our motto of "People Helping People" summarizes our objective to provide you with the best quality financial services at the best rates!
