About Signal Financial Federal Credit Union 

Chartered in 1947 as the Washington Telephone Federal Credit Union by a group of telephone company workers, the credit union was formed to help people seeking a better financial alternative and to improve the quality of their financial lives. While much has changed since 1947, the mission of the credit union remains true to this day. 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 the field of membership, in addition to the founding telephone company group. Signal has grown to more than $400 million in assets, serving more than 23,000 members. The credit union also encompasses over 250 small to medium-sized companies, as well as individuals who live, work, worship, or attend school in Washington, D.C., or Prince George’s County, MD (inside the beltway). Signal is regulated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), with deposits insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) up to $250,000. For more information on Signal Financial, visit
