About Erie Metro Federal Credit Union
Erie Metro Federal Credit Union was founded in 1976 by employees of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation in Lackawanna, NY. At the time, the credit union was known as the Steel 76 Federal Credit Union. In June 1984, Steel 76 FCU merged with Meyer Memorial Hospital FCU (now known as the Erie County Medical Center) where the name was changed to Erie Metro FCU.
In 2005, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) approved Erie Metro's request to convert to a community charter. The charter allows for a broader membership. We now serve all persons within the communities of Buffalo, Lackawanna, Blasdell, Hamburg, and Lakeview, NY. If you live, work, worship, go to school or volunteer within these communities, you are eligible for membership.
Following a recent merger of the Frontier Central Federal Credit Union in January, 2013, we now have over 7,100 members and assets nearing $30 million. For the past several years, NCUA has rated Erie Metro's financial condition as " Well Capitalized"
Through membership support, we envision a strong and successful future and will continue to provide the highest level of personal finance and banking services to all.
