This is our story

Since its founding in 1939 by a handful of Bell Telephone Company of Pennsylvania employees, TruMark Financial Credit Union has grown to be a leader in the credit union industry. TruMark Financial provides savings, transaction, and credit services solely for its members. The credit union’s field of membership includes anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers, or attends school in the Southeastern Pennsylvania counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia. As a not-for-profit financial institution, we’re different from a bank because our members are our owners. The credit union’s profits are returned to members in the form of competitive rates, higher investment returns, and fewer fees.
