United 1st Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial institution that provides financial services to people who have a common bond through occupation, association or geographic location. We were established in 1943 to serve the employees of the Kraft bag plant in St Marys, GA. Over the years, membership has grown to include not only numerous city and county government groups but also many companies, organizations and geographic areas. United 1st was originally chartered as a federal credit union. In an effort to serve more Georgians and to continue strengthening our deposit and loan portfolio, we converted to a Georgia state-chartered credit union in 2020. With so many ways to qualify for membership, the organization has grown to include over 25,000 members from across Georgia and beyond.
Credit unions are unique financial businesses because profits are returned to the members they serve. That's the reason why United 1st Credit Union is able to offer more competitive rates and charge lower fees. We understand you have different goals and needs and we pledge to be there throughout your life stages to help find financial solutions that fit your journey. In short "We Help People Afford Life".
At United 1st Credit Union we strive to contribute enrichment in our communities while helping you achieve your financial dreams. It is our intention to facilitate these goals through our interactions with you, through our commitment to community and our valued employees and with the financial services and materials we offer. We understand you have many options when choosing a financial institution and we are honored you chose us as your financial partner. We are proud of the communities we serve and we aim to reflect that in our service.
