About AmeriCU

AmeriCU is a non-for-profit credit union owned by members like you. We offer the same traditional products and services as a bank (plus investment, insurance and financial planning) – but with low or no fees, and better rates. Founded in 1950, today AmeriCU has grown to more than 100,000 members and nearly $1.3 billion in assets. We operate 18 full-service Financial Centers in Central and Northern New York.

  • We put our members first, and it shows; our staff consistently achieves the highest marks for satisfaction in the industry.
  • With our unique MemberPlus program, the more you do with AmeriCU, the more benefits you receive as a member - lower fees, lower rates on lending products, and higher rates on deposit products.
  • We also invest in the latest technology to give members 24/7 access to all their AmeriCU accounts, products, and services – anywhere in the world, anytime they wish!
  • With roots on Griffiss Air Force Base and Fort Drum, AmeriCU understands the needs of the Armed Forces; we offer special products and services for members of the military and their families.
  • AmeriCU also offers a complete line of Select Business Services designed for small to mid-size businesses including: checking and merchant services; loans, lines of credit and credit cards; commercial insurances; and employee benefits and retirement plans.
