About Congressional Federal
On July 9, 1953, eight congressional employees formed the credit union that would later become Congressional Federal Credit Union with just $40 in deposits. From humble beginnings in a single desk drawer in the Longworth HOB, Congressional Federal has grown into a full-service financial institution of over 46,000 members across the country and around the world.
Times have changed, but our mission hasn’t. Since day one, Congressional Federal has been committed to helping the people who serve on Capitol Hill achieve their financial goals. We understand that Capitol Hill is like nowhere else – its purpose, prestige, and pace of life set it apart from any other environment in the country. That deep understanding of life on the Hill and the people who serve here has shaped the way we do business.
We built our entire organization to meet the needs of the men and women who work on Capitol Hill. From our convenient onsite branches to transition loans that help our members move through each stage of their lives to financial seminars that address unique Capitol Hill challenges, our customized products and services reflect the rhythms of the Hill. By delivering robust financial solutions with member-focused personal service, we ensure you get all the products you expect with all the service you deserve - no matter what your financial dreams might be.
When you become a member of Congressional Federal, you join tens of thousands of current and former Hill employees as owners of an organization dedicated to our members’ financial success. Our experienced team of financial experts provides attentive personalized service when members need it and convenient 24-hour access through mobile, online, text and phone banking when they don’t. Our great rates and personal service go with members even after life takes them beyond the Hill, and our nationwide network of shared branches and ATMs ensure that Congressional Federal is still there whenever you need it, wherever you might be.
Ultimately, what we do is all about who we do it for. We know where you’re coming from and how to get you where you’re going. We help you do what you do - and do well – in your world. Come discover the difference that dedication makes.
