A Message from our President
Regarding the unthinkable events that transpired on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
To our members and employees of our member groups who endured the unthinkable events that transpired at the U.S. Capitol this past Wednesday, our hearts go out to you. To those placed on the front lines to defend and protect our nation's Capital in the face of an overwhelming catastrophe, we are forever grateful for your bravery and sacrifice. It is my great hope we can heal as a community and nation and turn this tragic moment into a touchstone for inspiring unity.
All of our USSFCU staff are safe as we made the decision to close our Senate Hart Branch on January 6 and it remained closed throughout last week. We all must take the time to reflect and process everything that has happened but we must also continue to move forward. That being said, the Senate Hart Branch will reopen on Monday, January 11, 2021 for regular business hours.
If there is anything the USSFCU family can do to help during this time, know that we are always here for our members and the communities we serve. Please feel free to reach out any time. We hope for brighter days ahead in the new year.

USSFCU President & CEO
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Like the rest of the world, we witnessed the abhorrent act resulting in the death of George Floyd. The United States Senate Federal Credit Union (USSFCU) extends our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the Floyd family and all who are suffering inexplicable loss due to inequality and discrimination. We join with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and others in our industry to pray for peace, healing and justice for our nation and all its citizens.
The USSFCU was established during the height of the Great Depression to provide affordable financial services to all. The credit union motto of people helping people is a bedrock principle for our institution. Discrimination, inequity and exclusion are contrary to this principle and the basic principle of humanity. At USSFCU, we stand with our members, employees and volunteers against systemic racism and all forms of injustice. We support an environment of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
As we continue to battle and recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19, we lift up our country during these turbulent times and reiterate USSFCU has been here for 85 years helping our members and employees.
Credit unions are uniquely built to effectuate change. The passion throughout the country aligns with our principle of people helping people and serves as the driver to alter the trajectory in our nation. We will get through this—and we will get through it together.
