About Us

Cooperative Extension Service Federal Credit Union (CESFCU) started in 1946 as the Agricultural Extension Workers Credit Association, a state-chartered credit union. CESFCU was started by 11 UADA Cooperative Extension Service employees (C. Lund, E. Olds, D. McGregor, H. Robertson, G. Tanner, L. Wylie, F. Friend, K. Bates, M. Phillips, M. Harper, and H. Maxwell) to provide a safe place for each of them and their fellow employees to save and borrow money hassle free.

CESFCU became a Federally Chartered Credit Union in 1992 and changed its name to Cooperative Extension Service Federal Credit Union to better represent the members served. 

CESFCU is a place where members continue to save money for the future and where members borrow money for necessities, life’s unexpected events, vehicles, and luxury items.

CESFCU Holiday Schedule

CESFCU observes the same holiday schedule as UADA Cooperative Extension Service. However, all ACH, Direct Deposit, Wire or other electronic transactions utilize the Federal Reserve’s holiday schedule; this schedule could conflict with the UADA CES holiday schedule. What this means is that we can be open on a Federal holiday and no ACH, Direct Deposit, Wire or other electronic transactions will be performed.
