Those Who Serve Justice
In 1935, 12 individuals pooled their resources and formed what is
now known as Justice Federal Credit Union® - a financial cooperative
designed to exclusively serve and aid the employees of the Department
of Justice. The main office was located in the Main Justice Building.
A second full service office was opened 40 years later in the J.
Edgar Hoover Building.
The 90's saw the launching of eight satellite branches in the Washington
DC Metropolitan Area, Clarksburg, WV, and New York City. These were locations
which fulfilled all the activities of full-service branches except
for the cash service at the teller line. To fulfill the cash function,
ATMs and cash dispensers were installed in these locations.
The financial success provided Justice FCU the opportunity to make great
strides in improving many systems and introducing new products and
services. Justice FCU now offers
several Visa credit cards, a variety of home and consumer loans,
diverse savings instruments, investment and insurance services, 28 Justice FCU ATM locations, memberships in
four ATM networks, another call center in West Virginia,
eStatements, eLERTs, Online Bill Pay, and home banking to provide members with unlimited access to their
finances from anywhere in the world. In 2005, we joined forces
with Financial Service Centers Cooperative (FSCC) shared branch
network. This unique partnership allows us to process transactions
on accounts at other credit unions for our members as well as
non-members. This service is currently available at the Wilshire
West branch, FBI and DEA Houston branches, and the FBI Branch
in New York. Within the near future, all Justice FCU
branch locations nationwide will become FSCC branches.
Into The Future
Although much has changed during the past 75 years, one central
element has remained constant -Justice FCU's commitment to the Department
of Justice, its employees, affiliated groups and family members.
Justice FCU continues to build on the tradition on which credit unions
were founded. New products, expanded services, and more locations
will become available as Justice FCU strives to be the premier provider
of retail and financial services to the justice and law enforcement
communities across the nation.
