About Us

About Us

Our Credit Union was originally established by, and exclusively for, GTE in 1960 and was known as Gentelco Federal Credit Union. Gentelco was a full-service financial cooperative dedicated to serving it's members. Gentelco expanded it's field of membership to include many other diverse groups and later became Vision Financial Federal Credit Union.

We currently serve the employees and family members of over 100 companies and almost 10,000 established members. We are extremely proud of our Credit Union and it's accomplishments including receiving the Bauer Financial 5 star rating EIGHTEEN years in a row!

If you are a new member, you will soon learn that many low cost and free benefits accompany your membership.
Since you are a shareholder in our Credit Union, we are able to return our earnings to you in the form of higher returns (dividends/interest) on your savings accounts and lower rates on your loans.

We have an incredible staff that represents our Credit Union and it's values daily, with pride and integrity.  We currently have four locations to serve you better:
