my ActorsFCU story
John Grigley

My daughter made it possible for us to join ActorsFCU back in 2004. This Credit Union has been great!

Michael Lanning

I was with another bank when I moved to NYC in 2000. Switching to ActorsFCU was the best banking decision I ever made!!
Thanks, ActorsFCU!

Toree Hill

Thanks, ActorsFCU, for being in LA when I left NY, and for helping me get a Chelsea apartment when I returned to Manhattan.

Aurelia  Williams

I was able to borrow the amount that I needed to buy a car appropriate for my growing family.

Alan H. Green

Of all my success, I am most proud that I own an apartment in Hell’s Kitchen—thanks to ActorsFCU. All actors should bank with ActorsFCU!

Aaralyn Anderson

Joining Actors Federal Credit Union was a major step for me as an actor. I am glad to know as I work I can save securely as I grow.

Bruce Thomas

ActorsFCU has always been there for me - when I moved into the NYC area and now that I live out of the NYC area, 27 years later.

Curt Williams

Nothing but good experiences with ActorsFCU!

Ruth Carsch

Joining ActorsFCU was a “no-brainer.” I wouldn’t bank anywhere else. ActorsFCU continues to grow and offers the services I need.

Diana LeBlanc

I feel so much better banking with ActorsFCU. They also provided me with an excellent mortgage interest rate!

Sean Martin  Hingston

ActorsFCU re-financed my mortgage in 2015 and reduced my interest rate from 6% to 3.25%—reducing my monthly payment by a quarter!

Renée  Bang Allen

When it came to opening a business account, ActorsFCU provided all the advantages of a commercial bank without any arbitrary fees.

Mel Hampton Sr

I’ve never felt more at home while banking online and in person. A collaborative Credit Union for a collaborative Art Form.

Sal Cecere

ActorsFCU has offices in LA and NY! Banking here maintains the latest conveniences and innovations but is much more personalized.

Ramona Floyd

ActorsFCU is my fave financial institution. They get it! I got my car loan and keep my savings here. Personalized and secure.

Our Story
Our Story
Founded on the principle that financial security should extend to actors, too, ActorsFCU has given artists and performers the credit they need to help them realize their dreams.
Here’s how:
“Don’t Call Us.
We’ll Call You.”
Seeing fellow actors struggle to obtain credit, Conrad Bain (of “Diff’rent Strokes” fame), along with six other AEA members, establishes Actors Federal Credit Union.
Don’t Call Us. We’ll Call You.
