About Us

America's First Network Credit Union was founded in 1976 in Clinton Connecticut under its original name, Chesebrough-Pond’s Federal Credit Union. We quickly grew to a two office operation by opening our Jefferson City Missouri branch the next year. In May of 1989, a third location was added with the opening of our Trumbull Connecticut office, which now serves as our main center of operation. After Chesebrough-Pond’s, Inc was acquired by Unilever Home & Personal Care USA, we changed our name to Personal Care America Federal Credit Union. Unilever continues to be one of our main sponsors. In 2016 Personal Care America Federal Credit Union became America's First Network Credit Union when we changed from a federally chartered credit union to a state chartered credit union. With continued growth, America's First Network Credit Union now has 6 offices located in 3 states with over 20 million in assets and over 4500 members!

America's First Network Credit Union is governed by a completely volunteer Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee (internal audit functions) who can be reached at supervisory.committee@afncu.com.  We are insured and regulated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). We strive to deliver the highest level of service with the greatest personal care! 
America's First Network Credit Union is “Where You Belong!”
