South Florida Educational Federal Credit Union was one of the first Credit Unions chartered in Florida in 1935.
The Credit Union was founded during the Great Depression and originally called Dade County Florida Teachers Federal Credit Union. Its mission then, as it remains today, was to provide its members affordable financial products coupled with exceptional personal service.
Initially membership was limited to employees and immediate family members of the Miami Dade County Public School system but was later expanded to include Miami-Dade Community College, (now known as Miami Dade College).
In 1972, the credit union's name was changed to Dade County School Employees Federal Credit Union to reflect the eligibility of all school employees. The name was changed again in January 2000 to South Florida Educational Federal Credit Union, after the county's name was changed to Miami-Dade, this name better reflects the credit union's educational focus.
Many things have changed since 1935* and no longer is the Credit Union limited to just savings and small loans. Today our products encompass almost every facet of the modern day financial services industry.
The one thing that has not changed however is our commitment to the educational communities that have supported the credit union for more than 78 years. South Florida Educational FCU works hard every day to donate its time and resources to the financial success of its members. This may be as simple as offering higher rates on our savings accounts, to lower rates on our loan accounts, to educating our young students on the importance of financial literacy.
South Florida Educational Federal Credit Union offers challenging career opportunities and great benefits. A majority of our staff began on the Teller line where they learned our high standards of member service.
Our staff can tell you that patience and hard work pay off. Many Tellers have progressed to Contact Center Representatives, Loan Officers, Department Managers, Branch Managers, etc.
We are currently accepting applications. If you would like to be part of a team with a focus on providing quality financial services while serving the educational community, SFEFCU is the place for you.
