LIBERTY FINANCIAL | A DIVISION OF ETFCU
— Coming September 2022 —

Liberty Financial will adopt a new name this fall, but we will remain the same nationally recognized credit union committed to your financial needs.

How will our name change affect you?

Although our name will change, there will be no change to your banking experience!

Will I still be able to use my debit card?

done Yes!

Will I still be able to use my credit card?

done Yes!

Will I still be able to use my checks?

done Yes!

Liberty Financial is one of the fastest growing credit unions in the country. We now serve more than 270,000 members throughout the region and in every state. The reason for our growth is simple: We are committed to providing products and services with the greatest financial return to you, our membership.

At Liberty Financial, this isn’t a slogan. We are owned and operated by you. This is a difference that drives everything we do. 

To better communicate this difference, we will change our name to Liberty Federal Credit Union in September.

Although our name will be changing, we will remain the same nationally recognized financial institution you have come to know and trust, providing industry leading loan and deposit programs that offer the best value in the financial services marketplace.
