Celebrating 50 Years of Putting Members First!
We at Priority First Federal Credit Union wish to express our sincere appreciation to our members and employees for their loyal support as we celebrate our fiftieth year in business. From our humble beginnings in 1969 serving the employees of Brockway Glass we have grown to over 12,000 members, $80 million in assets and now serve the areas of Jefferson and Clearfield counties. Without the support of our excellent team we may not have been this successful. We are so grateful for our
members who trusted in us to provide worthy products and services. Our member’s needs, challenges and feedback have pushed us to improve immensely. With your ongoing support, we plan to continue focusing on providing a superior level of service that can only be found at YOUR credit union!

Priority Employer Program
The purpose of the Priority Employer Program is to provide additional benefits to employers with a large number of credit union members. It is a great way to expand their company benefits package at no cost, and it makes the employees
feel as if they have a choice in financial institutions. When an employer signs up for this program, we agree to host onsite educational events, provide new hire packets, paycheck stuffers, other promotional documents to give to the
employees and much more! We also assign someone as an Ambassador to communicate, educate and advocate for the credit union at their company. This Quarter we have partnered with Goodwill Industries of North Central Pennsylvania, and our Ambassador is Krisha Oates. We are happy to be affiliated with such a great company and amazing people! If you are interested in joining our Priority Employer Program or think that your employer would benefit from this program, call Marketing Specialist Kayla Stockdale at (814) 371-4695 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
