Boston Firefighters Credit Union was established in 1948. Since that time, BFCU has had one goal; to provide high quality services in a warm, friendly atmosphere with the best possible rates while operating in a safe and sound manner consistent with all regulatory rules and regulations. 

The reason BFCU was established was to assist fellow firefighters who were struggling financially.  Thanks to your loyalty and the loyalty of the firefighter generations before you, today we are a full-service financial institution. 

We are bigger, we are stronger and we strive to make your banking experience as Simple and Honest as possible.

We have made some changes by offering the same financial services to Police Officers, EMS and Suffolk County Sheriffs.  We welcome these new members with open arms and we are proud to be able to assist them with their financial needs in the same way we have been helping firefighters with their financial needs for 70 years.

But we will never forget our roots!

We thank you for always being there for us and we promise to always be there for you!
