Who We Are

About CDC Federal Credit Union

Our history, team, vision, values, and commitment to you


In 1949, with remnants of the Great Depression lingering in the minds of American workers, employees at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention needed a safe and reliable place to keep their money. CDC Federal Credit Union was chartered March 1, 1949, by a small group of employees from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Members would democratically run the credit union making it a financial institution for the people, by the people.

Today, CDC Federal Credit Union is a full-service financial institution serving those who live, work, worship, attend school or volunteer in portions of DeKalb, Fulton or Gwinnett Counties. In addition to serving the community and the employees of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we are proud to serve the employees of organizations like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, American Cancer Society, Whole Foods and over 100 more.
