70th Anniversary

We are proud to celebrate 70 years of serving South Florida.

We're Celebrating You, Our Members

July 2021, marks the 70th anniversary of Power Financial Credit Union (PFCU). In 1951, PFCU began as the credit union for the employees of Florida Power & Light and their families.

From humble beginnings 70 years ago, PFCU has flourished into a modern, full-service financial institution with nearly a billion dollars in assets, serving almost 35,000 members and growing in 13 counties across Florida.

We are driven by our purpose to help guide our members to better financial lives today and for generations to come. It has been our unwavering commitment to our members, through good times and bad, that has allowed us to thrive. It is that same commitment that will allow us to flourish for many years to come.

We wouldn't be the award-winning credit union that we are without our members. We thank you for your confidence in us and your support over the last seven decades. From the birth of a child to retirement, we are honored and humbled that you would select us as your financial partner through each life-changing event. We look forward to serving you in the future and continuing to provide you with personalized banking solutions that help turn your financial dreams into realities.

Our 70th year presents many exciting opportunities for us to strengthen our ability to serve you. We will continue to improve our products and services with value-added member experience as the main focus. We will enhance our Financial Empowerment program by including videos, quick reference guides and other tools to help you improve your financial wellness. We will also further upgrade our Online Banking and 4.8 star rated Mobile App to provide you with an even more seamless, secure and convenient banking experience.

Thank you again for being a valued member of the PFCU family and for celebrating this significant milestone with us.
