Welcome to Chicago Firefighters CU
Chicago Firefighters Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by the more
than 4,000 members who save and borrow with us. Whether you want to start a regular savings
program; borrow money to buy a car or improve your home; or just get your monthly bills paid as
quickly and easily as possible, we can help you reach your financial goals.
Like all credit unions, CFFCU provides personal financial services to individuals who share a
common bond, such as employment, association membership, or place of residence. While banks
must earn profits to satisfy their shareholders, credit unions exist only to serve their members.
That means you get better returns on your savings and lower loan rates, while paying fewer fees
than you would at a bank.
In addition to our savings programs and low-interest loans,
CFFCU also offers a number of convenience services that make it easier to manage your money,
including checking accounts with debit card and ATM access, Direct Deposit, and Visa
credit cards with a low fixed rate of 9.11% APR. Internet banking and online bill
paying are now available.
All member accounts at Chicago Firefighters CU are federally insured to at least $250,000 and
backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government. This fund is administered
by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the federal government.
