SECNY Credit Union History

Chartered in May 1971, the credit union is a member-owned, non-profit, full-service financial institution.

Originally, credit union membership was a benefit granted only by sponsor groups that had requested credit union services for its employees, association members, club members, students and family members. Our original field of membership encompassed most school districts in Central New York along with several municipalities and industries.

On September 13, 2001, SECNY Federal Credit Union was designated a community credit union. This status allows us to offer membership to any person working, living, worshipping, attending school, businesses and legal entities in Onondaga, Madison, Oswego and Cayuga counties.

The federal government recognized SECNY FCU as a credit union with the ability, management, services and financial strength to serve the entire community of Central New York. The ability to serve a greater area will allow SECNY to build more offices, install new ATMs and enhance its electronic delivery systems. The very nature of SECNY has been to serve its schools, students and their families, thus serving a very important part of the Central New York Community. The natural progression is to serve the entire community. SECNY maintains its focus on education and commitment to going beyond just providing financial services.
