About Us

The Fort Dix Federal Credit Union was first organized May 1, 1963 under the leadership of SGM. Max Martin and CW4 Clarence Lines. At the onset there were 12 members in a subscriber group and the maximum loan was set at $150.00. Within the first 8 months the membership swelled to more than 700 members.

The credit union became a full scale operation with its own facilities in January 1967. The first full-time manager was hired in 1970. Throughout the early years, all positions were part-time and only tellers were paid a salary. Over the years we have moved to various locations, seen the implementation of many new products, and experienced many mission changes within the Fort Dix Community, which has now become a Joint Base operation.

In October of 2004, we moved from the corner of 8th & Alabama Streets to our present location at Building 5408 on Delaware Avenue. The credit union is governed by a Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee that oversee all activities.

What is a Credit Union?

Credit unions focus on the needs of all their members instead of profit for stockholders. All members benefit - individually and collectively.

  • A credit union is a not-for-profit financial institution that is owned and run by its members.
  • The Board of Directors is democratically elected by the membership.
  • All members of the credit union have one vote, regardless of the amount on deposit.
  • The prime function of the credit union is to serve its members.
