The AFL–CIO Employees Federal Credit Union is a multiple common bond, federally chartered credit union headquartered in Washington, D.C. The credit union was founded in 1952 for members of the AFL-CIO. It currently has two locations serving 9,723 members. AFL-CIO Employees FCU has assets of $76 million.[1][2]

The economic downturn of 2008 negatively affected the credit union with large losses in the first half of the year.[3]


Employees of the AFL-CIO are eligible for membership in the credit union as are employees of affiliated AFL-CIO International Unions, constitutional departments of the AFL-CIO, and state or local central labor bodies. Eligibility is also extended to members of the Office and Professional Employees International Union - Local 2, the United Food and Commercial Workers - Local 400, the National Football League Players Association and the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, District Council 51.[4]
