Our History

Our roots in the Hudson Valley community date back to 1963.

We are a community-based financial cooperative that is committed to strengthening the quality of life for our members, friends, families, and neighbors in the Hudson Valley. 

We began as IBM Poughkeepsie Employees Federal Credit Union in October 1963 when a group of IBM employees had a vision to create a financial cooperative for employees in Poughkeepsie and Fishkill, and their families— a vision where the needs of the individual would be placed before profit.

For over 60 years, it has been our mission to provide affordable products and convenient services to help you succeed financially through every stage of life.
