About

Why should you join the Amicus family?

Amicus Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution which is owned and controlled by its members. Unlike banks and other financial institutions that have to pay dividends to stockholders and pay a Board of Directors, our excess earnings are returned to our members in the form of lower loan rates, higher dividends on savings,  additional products and services, additional branches, etc. Our Board of Directors are elected by the members, and volunteer their time to make sure the credit union always operates in the best interests of the membership as a whole.

Our Vision: Credit Unions were developed with the logo “People Helping People”. Amicus, in keeping with this tradition, is hosting Dave Ramsey classes to help people in the community learn how to become debt free and build wealth. We are a credit union devoted to educating our community,  creating financial peace and bettering our members financial future.

Our Mission: To better our community one relationship at a time.

Children’s Miracle Network

Amicus is a big supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network. Through our special deals and incentives, we’ve raised over $15,000 to help children in need. The money that we raise at Amicus goes to help our own local children’s hospitals be able to save the lives of the most precious gifts we receive. Through a small donation, we can all help save lives.

A $25 donation decrease your new loan rate by .25%* APR. Just like your donation it is a small amount, but it will build up over time to be something great!
(*New money only, certain terms and conditions apply, APR = Annual Percentage Rate)
