WHO IS GUARDIAN FEDERAL CREDIT UNION?

Guardian federal Credit Union was founded by a small group of individuals seeking a consumer friendly alternative to banks in August 1956. Our original charter name was the Norfolk Federal Employees Federal Credit Union and we were located in the Norfolk Post Office and Courts Building, which today is known as the Walter E. Hoffman Courthouse. In 1961, Guardian moved into the Portsmouth Federal Building and our name changed to the Fifth Coast Guard District Federal Credit Union. In 1984 we adopted our current name, Guardian Federal Credit Union.
