Who We Are


Proudly serving those who valiantly serve us

The Finest FCU is unique in that fact that it is the only financial institution in New York chartered specifically to serve the needs of all New York Police Departments and its affiliates. Chartered in 2015, The Finest Federal Credit Union evolved from the vision of a group of retired NYPD officers. They believed their fellow officers should receive the best financial services in the marketplace. Services that are tailored to the special needs of our law enforcement officers and affiliated departments. These services will focus on New York Law Enforcement and their families.

Regarding the formation of the credit union, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio praised the Finest FCU for serving police officers that take unique risks due to the nature of their job. “It is common for peace officer organizations to establish specialized credit unions that provide savings, lending and insurance products that meet their special needs,” de Blasio said. “I am pleased to learn that a specialized credit union, the Finest Federal Credit Union, is being established for that purpose.”
