Arsenal Credit Union was established by eight individuals who sought a better way to manage their money. They envisioned an institution that combined the financial power of their coworkers and family members, giving themselves economic control over their wages and ultimately, their futures. Today, we are still driven by this philosophy — Arsenal's mission is to utilize the power of money to help people improve their economic and social well-being. Unlike banks who use people to amass profits for their executives, board directors and stockholders, we empower our members by injecting their money back into their credit union. This allows our members to get loans at lower rates than big banks are willing to offer, as well as earn a higher yield on their deposits. Since people motivate our ambitions, we consistently provide excellent service. Loaded with benefits, we are Arsenal Credit Union.
