About Signal Financial Federal Credit UnionChartered in 1947 (as the Washington Telephone Federal Credit Union) by a group of telephone company workers, Signal Financial FCU was formed to help people seeking a better financial alternative and to improve the quality of their financial lives, which remains true to this day. Signal Financial is owned and operated by members who share a common bond through employer or geographic affiliation and governed by volunteers who are elected by members to serve on the board. We strive to provide quality and fair-priced financial services for our membership. In turn, profits are returned to the members in the form of better rates, reduced fees, and improved services.

In 2007, the Washington Telephone Federal Credit Union officially became Signal Financial Federal Credit Union to be more inclusive of the many diverse businesses in our field of membership, in addition to our founding telephone company groups. Signal Financial FCU has grown to more than $400 million in assets serving more than 24,000 members. Our credit union family encompasses 250+ small-to medium-sized companies, members of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA), as well as individuals who live, work, worship or attend school in the District of Columbia or in Prince George’s County, MD (inside the beltway). Certain family members and businesses (including their employees) are also eligible to join the credit union.

Signal Financial is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), with deposits insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) up to $250,000.
