A Rich History in Service
First Priority Credit Union (formerly Postal Community Credit Union) is a Massachusetts chartered credit union whose tradition of meeting members financial needs began when a group of postal employees banded together in 1924 to form the Boston Post Office Employees Credit Union. Their simple goal, promote the financial well being of each and every postal employee and retiree.
Over these 82 years, First Priority Credit Union has transformed itself from a small one-office credit union with less than $10,000 in assets into a full-service financial institution with over $100,000,000 in assets.
First Priority Credit Union's has branch locations at Fort Point Station in Boston, Massachusetts and East Boston, Massachusetts.
After many years of continually improving the financial health of its membership and some seventy-plus years after its inception, the First Priority Credit Union hit a period of rapid growth and merged with Lowell Postal Employees Credit Union.
First Priority took its service to new levels and made tremendous efforts to meet members financial needs on their terms. They did this by introducing products and services that facilitate 24-hour access to their accounts and improve the control members have over their finances. This service expansion included:
- 24-Hour Telephone Lending Center
- Call Center which provides personalized service during business hours
- CU-Talk, Telephone Branch allows members to perform transactions via the telephone
- Website Services
- Online Banking which allows members to perform transactions via the Internet
- Bill Payment
- Anytime Instant Loan Application
- On-line Check Reorder
In continuing that tradition First Priority Credit Union has added equally innovative products in the past few years. FA$TCA$H Deposit is a unique new service that enables members to make deposits through online banking. Anytime Instant Loan provides an immediate answer to a loan application completely online. Member's can transfer their account from another financial institution with ease through the Simple Switch Program.
All of these improvements have led First Priority Credit Union to a new era and positioned First Priority to provide the best service possible to its membership.
