About Us

Greater Alliance is a forward-thinking and growing credit union built upon more than 80 years of commitment to members, community and service. Greater Alliance 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.

From that humble beginning in 1937, established primarily for the purpose of serving teachers and their immediate families, we expanded our field of membership in February of 2005 and changed our name to Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union. Today, Greater Alliance has grown into a premier community credit union in NJ, owned by its over 19,000 members and is fully committed to the financial well-being of the families, businesses and communities where we serve.

Greater Alliance offers membership to anyone who lives, works, Volunteers, worships or goes to school in, and other businesses and legal entities located in Bergen or Passaic county within New Jersey. With three branches to serve our growing membership, Greater Alliance offers a complete suite of financial products and services such as; personal and auto loans, savings products, mortgages, and financial planning, which is only a small sampling of a lengthy list of possibilities our members enjoy.

As stated in our Mission, Vision and our list of Core Values, we are here to serve our members the very best way we can. Like most credit unions, Greater Alliance relies on an active, participating membership to thrive. With assets around $170 Million and still growing, we are proud that the cooperative spirit at Greater Alliance is healthy and vibrant.
