Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union (GAFCU) is a member-owned financial cooperative that was founded in 1937 when five dedicated educators chartered what was then known as Central Bergen Teacher's Federal Credit Union. The organization began to expand its field of membership in the mid 1980s under the sanction of the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) to include a diverse mix of employee groups, and associations - and became known as Central Bergen Federal Credit Union.

In addition to the more than 255 employee groups which the credit union has served, including some of Northern New Jersey’s largest hospitals, corporations and municipalities, the organization changed its charter to become a community credit union. Now, anyone who lives, works, worships, does business, volunteers or attends school in Bergen or Passaic County is eligible for membership.

As a result of our charter change, Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union has rapidly expanded the membership base in Bergen and Passaic Counties. We remain committed to provide superior financial services to all our members.
