Banks & Credit Unions Chamber Partner

About Us

Our credit union was founded during the Great Depression on July 23, 1936 when nineteen men employed by the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railway Company pooled their money in a cigar box. Their mission: provide excellent financial services to the under-represented members of our community.
Our great service and quality financial options quickly connected with the people of Alabama.

Today, we have over 180,000 members and $2 billion dollars in assets. We’re proud to carry on our founding tradition by providing financial services that add value to your life and are easy to understand. Our 20 branch locations proudly serve the following Alabama counties: Bibb, Blount, Calhoun, Chilton, Coosa, Cullman, Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Walker, and certain areas of Mobile.

You can apply online to join America’s First. We’d also be happy to talk over membership benefits and answer any questions you might have. Drop by any branch or call us at 205-320-4000 or toll free 1-800-633-8431.

We have a 5-star rating from BauerFinancial, which measures the financial health of our credit union and investments. Our savings and checking accounts are insured up to up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
