To make D.C. Teachers Federal Credit Union a
number one world class credit union which will provide the best
in financial services.
Designed to Be Different
D.C. Teachers Federal Credit Union was originally
chartered by the District of Columbia. Today it's a federal credit
union. Like other credit unions, our not-for-profit, service-oriented,
member-focused approach to business distinguishes it from other
types of financial institutions, as do our low interest rates on
loans and high interest rates for savings accounts.
