....Sterling Federal Credit Union is a financial cooperative chartered, supervised and regulated by the National Credit Union Administration. Originally chartered as a community credit union in 1938, credit union membership is open to all residents who live, work, worship or do business in Logan and Morgan County, Colorado, and their families.
....In the beginning the only services available were share/savings and loans. Early business was conducted by Treasurer Mr. Emmett Groce out of his home at 506 Lincoln St. The credit union’s first office was at the Sterling Co-Op Oil Company on South Third Street. Growth brought the credit union to its present-day location at 822 W. Main in July 1981.
....Everyone who joins the credit union becomes a member/owner. Once you’re a member, you are always a member, even if you move from the community.
....Membership includes the privilege to elect the volunteer board of directors who governs the credit union. Complementing the board is a team of 26 employees responsible for operations; 19 in Sterling and seven at the Fort Morgan Branch which opened in 1988.
....Over the years, services have expanded and today include a complete suite of financial products and services.
Along the way Sterling Federal Credit Union earned accolades that include: the first Federal community type charter credit union to attain 1 million in assets in 1954, recipient of the Sterling Journal Advocates Readers’ Choice Award, Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award from Credit Union National Association, and consistently ranked highly among its peer group of credit unions and federal examiners.
