Riverfront Federal Credit Union
was chartered by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) in 1948 as RDG Reading Federal Credit Union. Our original field of membership (people who are eligible to become members) consisted of the employees of the Reading Railroad. Eventually the membership grew to include Conrail and Amtrak employees.
Since that time, the NCUA allowed credit unions to bolster their fields of membership by permitting organizations and companies that were unable to establish their own credit union, to join existing credit unions. This change in policy has allowed us to grow to include approximately 200 sponsors.
To reflect our diversified field of membership, in late 1987 the credit union changed its name to Riverfront Federal Credit Union.
In August 2000, Riverfront added the City of Reading as an underserved area to our field of membership. This designation allows anyone who lives, works, worships, or is educated in the City of Reading to become a member, as well as their family members.
In October of 2008, Riverfront Amended it's Charter from Common Bond
to Community so that anyone who lives, works, worships or is educated in Berks
County can now join the credit union.
Today, Riverfront is a strong credit union, receiving the very highest rating given by credit union examiners. We continue to grow and expand services guided by the needs of our members.
Our mission is to be the trusted provider of financial products and services
that our members value.
We are federally chartered and regulated by the National Credit Union
Administration (NCUA), an agency of the U.S. Government. The NCUA examines each
credit union annually and insures savings accounts up to at least $250,000.
