TFCU’s new high-tech state-of-the-art branch, the credit union’s 31st to open in 2018, brings credit union banking service to members in central Nassau County

Hauppauge, NY/East Meadow, NY, January 28, 2019 – Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), one of the country’s largest credit unions with over 320,000 members, has opened its 31st branch in East Meadow, New York. The branch is located at 2557 Hempstead Turnpike and features high-tech member-focused services. This new branch opening highlights a year of record growth and expansion for TFCU, which included the acquisition of three credit unions, Nikon Employees/ Projector Federal Credit Union, Melrose Credit Union and LOMTO Credit Union. In 2018, TFCU opened six branches, including Center Moriches and Kings Park on Long Island and three in New York City as part of the acquisitions of Melrose Credit Union and LOMTO Credit Union. The credit union now has branches from Manhattan in New York City to Riverhead on the East End of Long Island.

“This has been a monumental year for TFCU, we have added 40,000 members, over $1 billion in assets and six branches. This state-of-the-art branch provides our members with greater in-person access to staff who are always available to answer questions, provide support for transactions and identify the right accounts as well as financial products. We selected East Meadow for a branch because it is in the heart of Nassau County and in a community where we have a growing number of members,” said Robert G. Allen, President/CEO of TFCU.

The East Meadow branch is in a visible location on Hempstead Turnpike and less than a mile from the Nassau County Medical Center. The branch was designed in keeping TFCU members’ banking and service needs in mind. Teachers Federal Credit Union is committed to opening locations that are convenient for members as well as offering best-in-class mobile and online banking services. The East Meadow branch staff of five full-time professionals are providing members and local residents with comprehensive banking and lending services convenient to their homes and places of business.
