Building relationships that stand the test of time

Strong partnerships with our members. Strong commitment to our communities. At Purdue Federal, we have a proud history of being a positive force.

Purdue University Employees Credit Union was founded in 1969 by a group of university employees. Put simply, they wanted a place where they, their families and fellow employees could save and borrow money safely, confidentially, and at a fair rate of interest.

Over the years, the financial institution went through several name changes. It finally became Purdue Federal Credit Union in 2010, shortly after acquiring Members United Federal Credit Union. The new name was a true reflection of the membership base, which includes students, faculty, staff and communities where Purdue University and its regional campuses operate.

Headquartered in West Lafayette, Ind., Purdue Federal is a member-owned financial cooperative with 83,000 members worldwide and assets exceeding $1.7 billion. Its mission is to earn the trust of its members and become their financial partner for life. Its staff is driven by superior member service and dedication to the Greater Lafayette, Crown Point and La Porte communities.

Through its 10 full-service branches, three satellite branches, and digital banking services, Purdue Federal offers members a full menu of financial products. These include locally serviced mortgages, home equity loans, vehicle loans, credit cards and business loans. Also featured are checking, savings, Money Market and other deposit accounts, as well as digital services that allow members to pay bills, transfer funds, access statements and generally manage money whenever it's convenient for them.

In addition, Purdue Federal is committed to building stronger communities. Every employee receives eight hours of paid time off to volunteer at the local organization of their choice. The credit union provides both volunteer and monetary resources to organizations that assist the needy, support education and the arts and provide health and social services.

Today, Purdue Federal remains strong because it has stayed true to its original purpose—people helping people.

Purdue Federal Credit Union serves members worldwide and operates branches throughout Greater Lafayette, Crown Point and La Porte, Indiana.
