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 39,000 members, encompassing the military, Delaware families, and over 400+ different Select Groups. Today, Dover Federal Credit Union is well capitalized with assets exceeding $400 million.

The Credit Union is governed by member volunteers elected to the Board of Directors and managed by experienced financial professionals.

Celebrating over 50 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.
