Why Should I Join The New Horizons Federal Credit Union?
As a member of The New Horizons Federal Credit Union (New Horizons), you will take advantage of one of the most unique financial opportunities of a lifetime. Founded in 1960 to serve the employees of Bryan Brothers Packing Company, New Horizons is now open to employee groups and associations in and around the Golden Triangle area. As a member of New Horizons, you will become an owner of the place you do your banking! New Horizons is owned by its users, called members. All of the funds utilized to support the credit union come from the membership and all of the credit union’s earnings are returned to its members thru lower interest on loans, higher dividends on savings and lower or the absence of fees, and to the community in various forms of financial and volunteer support.
What does New Horizons offer?
New Horizons FCU offers a range of basic financial services to help you reach financial success. We strive to find new products and services to enhance how you interact with the credit union. However, we remain dedicated to certain “old” traditions like greeting you by name at the teller window and always offering a live person on the phone and not an answering machine when you need us. We believe that the best part of being a small credit union is interacting with our members.
