Who Is Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union

 

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 23,000 members and is fully committed to the financial well-being of the families, businesses and communities where we serve.
