CEO's Message

Welcome to our website. We are glad you are here!

As the second largest credit union in the Greater Baton Rouge Area and the third largest credit union in Louisiana, we not only want to provide you with the products and services you need, we also want to make your banking an enjoyable experience.

You can’t go wrong as a member of our credit union. In fact, EFCU Financial continues to be rated #1 for member value in the state of Louisiana by Callahan & Associates, a national organization dedicated to credit union research and analytics. EFCU Financial ranked near the top in our state in all three categories scored: 1) return on savings for our members, 2) lending return to borrowers, and 3) member product usage. This means you cannot find a better value at any of the other credit union in the entire state than at EFCU Financial.

Another independent rating organization, Bauer Financial, has given EFCU Financial its top rating of 5-Star (Superior). Bauer Financial is the source for unbiased, independent bank and credit union star-ratings. Ratings and reports are compiled from financial data as reported to federal regulators. EFCU Financial is proud to be a highly recommended credit union by Bauer Financial.

In addition, based on 11 key performance indicators compiled by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), EFCU Financial is also the overall best performing credit union in Louisiana. In 2022, we added more than 11,800 new members, and our total assets grew by 21%. As a result, our credit union helped more than 7,600 members purchase a vehicle and more than 330 members purchase the home of their dreams. We were also able to award $30,000 in college scholarships to 24 graduating high school seniors, and we helped over 30 non-profit organizations and schools by donating funds and in-kind contributions.

If you are not currently an EFCU Financial member, I invite you to visit any of our eight convenient branch locations and experience "the Louisiana way to bank" with the best credit union for member value. We are over 64,000 members strong, and we would be proud to be your credit union.
