Your dream. Our pursuit.

For more than 65 years, American First Credit Union has remained focused on the financial well-being of our members and our community, offering competitive products and personal service. With a vision to be our members’ most essential financial resource, we are relentless in our efforts to deliver a world of access, ease and convenience.

If you choose American First Credit Union, you benefit from low-interest loans for vehicles, homes, credit cards, and personal loans for whatever else you may need. And you can receive higher rates on savings accounts and share certificates, enjoy Totally Free Checking with rewards, Big Prize Savings to win up to $50,000, and more. 

But we’re not just about banking! In addition to extraordinary service, we give back to our neighborhoods through our 'Caring First' initiative by getting involved in causes that make our communities better.

Our History

American First Credit Union was established in 1952 as a credit union for grocery store workers. In the early 2000s, we expanded our common bond charter and today offer banking solutions to individuals and small businesses in Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties. We also partner with over 100 companies to serve their employees and extend membership through other community groups. We are a full-service, member-owned institution offering solutions for total financial wellness. American First is federally insured by NCUA and an Equal Opportunity Lender.

The Credit Union Difference

Did you know your credit union can make banking better and give you more for your money? Because our members are shareholders, the profits we make are reinvested in you for better rates, better service, and a quicker way to achieve your financial dreams.
