TFCU opened their doors on March 13, 1935 with just over $800 in deposits to serve employees of Southern Bell. Throughout the 30s, 40s and 50s, we continued to grow.
By the 1960s our assets had reached over $10 million. In the 70's, we started to expand our services to include checking, credit cards and ATMs and by 1979 we had evolved into a full service financial institution.
During the 80s we continued to grow by leaps and bounds and in 1989, we opened our field of membership to include other select employee groups outside of the bell system companies that we initially served.
During the 90's we changed our name to Tropical Federal Credit Union and grew to serve over 200 select employee groups. Then in 2001, we changed our name once more to Tropical Financial Credit Union and opened our field of membership to the community.
Today we serve over 54,000 members and are over $500 million in assets. We are proud of our 80 year history and we look forward to serving the South Florida community for many more decades!
