Our History

Dover Federal Credit Union was first chartered in 1958 by a handful of Air Force and civilian workers at Dover Air Force Base. Their goal was to create a member-owned financial cooperative, democratically controlled by its members and operated for the purpose of promoting thrift, providing credit at competitive rates, and providing other financial services to its members. Today we serve over 48,000 members, encompassing the military, Delaware families, and over 400+ different Select Groups. Today, Dover Federal Credit Union is well capitalized with assets in excess of $460 million.

Celebrating nearly 60 years of serving the military and Delaware families is a true accomplishment for us. We are very proud of our past in serving you. Thank you for being a part of the tradition of Dover Federal and trusting us with your financial needs.

Serving the Military, Delaware Families, and You!

Dover Federal Credit Union is different than a bank.  We are a not-for-profit full service financial cooperative.  Our sole purpose is to make a positive difference in a members financial life.  As a financial co-op, we are member owned and governed by member-volunteers, whom are elected to the Board of Directors and managed by experienced financial professionals. 

Members benefit by receiving higher earnings on deposit accounts and lower rates and fees on loans and services, plus you will appreciate the friendly personalized service that sets us apart from other financial institutions.

We are here for YOU, every step of the way.
