ARC Federal Credit Union - Who We Are

Our credit union has been a fixture in the Altoona community since 1956. We were founded so members could provide loans and financial services to each other by pooling their funds when traditional financial institutions at that time would not serve them. For more than six decades, we’ve grown and flourished by continuing that mission of helping those in our community who need it the most. We have also reaped the rewards that community service offers – peace of mind in the knowledge that we work to provide our members with the services they need to succeed and grow financially.

Our profits are returned to our members in the form of fewer/lower fees and better rates on our savings and loan products. Our Board of Directors is made up of trained volunteers. They are elected by and from our membership and donate their time to help ensure we are running in the best interests of our account holders. Anyone who has an account at ARC also has a share of ownership in our credit union and as a member has a voice – and a vote – to elect our Board of Directors and other credit union committees.

As a credit union, we’re a financial institution based on the principle of “people helping people” and we have generations of experience. Our mission – a commitment to providing quality financial services and satisfaction to our members while maintaining strong personal relationships – has been the key to helping so many members achieve their personal financial goals. Come, see the difference that people can make and grow with us today!
