Membership

    Member Owned

    At JPEFCU, each one of our members is literally an owner and an equal shareholder of our Credit Union.  From the beginning, our primary concern has been to help members safely achieve their financial goals.

    Our Credit Union is democratically owned and controlled. As a member and owner of JPEFCU, you have a voice in electing our Board of Directors. Their leadership, along with your input and suggestions, help set the direction for our Credit Union.

    We are a member owned, not-for-profit financial institution.

    “Not for profit, not for charity, but for service,” has always been the credit union motto, and we are proud to still practice this philosophy, today.
