About First Education
Established in 1947 by a group of teachers in Laramie County, First Education is a not-for-profit financial cooperative providing a full selection of banking services. We offer a variety of savings and checking accounts, low-rate loans and Cash-back rewards credit cards, debit cards, and much more.
When you join First Education, you become a member and part owner of the Credit Union. Unlike traditional banks whose profits go to private shareholders, our profits are returned to the membership in the form of improved services, lower rates on loans, higher yields on deposits, and a commitment to providing knowledgeable and friendly member service second to none. We strive to save you money and improve your financial life overall.
Flexible Terms and Low Rates on Loans. Whether you need a new car, make needed repairs on your house, pay for college education, or take that dream vacation, know that you will find the loan that fits your needs. We’re flexible and easy to work with, and our low rates will save you money.
Competitive Rates on Savings. First Education makes it easier to save with a deposit account for every need or goal. From basic savings to Christmas or Vacation Club, share certificates, Individual Retirement Accounts, Money Market and SuperSaver, we can help you save. Plus you can rename your accounts to fit your needs. All of our deposit accounts are insured by NCUA, a division of the federal government.
24/7 Account Access. Review your transactions, transfer money and pay bills anytime, anywhere with NetTeller Online Banking and AirTeller Mobile Banking.

Our Members Are Owners. We really do belong to you. First Education Federal was founded by people with a philosophy of helping one another. Credit unions respond to the financial needs of their members quickly and creatively because members are the credit union. The Board of Directors, management, and staff do not have to worry about making a profit for third-party investors who may or may not do business at FEFCU.
