Our Mission

The Credit Union exists only to serve its members. To achieve this goal, the credit union will adapt to changes in the marketplace and market the Credit Union to employees and families in the existing companies in the field of membership and in the underserved areas in the charter, but also offer the Credit Union to all consumers through Field of Membership expansion.

Our History
In the beginning…

Cross Valley FCU was chartered by the NCUA in February 1969. Originally chartered as the Wilkes-Barre Federal Employees Federal Credit Union, it's sponsor was the Data Operations Center of Social Security Administration in Wilkes-Barre. Subsequent expansion of the Federal Charter was approved by the NCUA to include select employee groups (SEGs) in Northern Pennsylvania soon after.

Over the years…

The Credit Union has grown and prospered over the years, thanks to a dedicated board of directors and Credit Union members who believe in the philosophy of "People Helping People." In January of 1994, the Credit Union changed its' name to Cross Valley Federal Credit Union and in April of 1994 moved into it's Main Office located at 640 Baltimore Drive, Wilkes-Barre in the East Mountain Corporate Center in Plains Twp.

Today…

In July of 2008, the NCUA awarded Cross Valley Federal Credit Union a community charter, granting permission for the Credit Union to provide affordable financial services to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in the Pennsylvania Counties of Luzerne, Lackawanna or Wyoming. Today Cross Valley FCU is proud to service over 23,000 members and has over $168 million in assets, and continues to serve it's community as a full-serviced financial institution.
