A&S Federal Credit Union open to public
The A&S Federal Credit Union, a member-based financial institution, has become a community-chartered credit union, open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Beaver County.
Established in 1940, the A&S Federal Credit Union, formerly known as the A&S RR Employees Federal Credit Union, was formed by individuals who worked on the Aliquippa & Southern Railroad. Membership was restricted to those railroad employees.
Recognizing a decline in railroad members and a changing economic climate, the A&S board sought approval from the National Credit Union Administration to become a community-chartered credit union.
The A&S Federal Credit Union is at 2283 Broadhead Road. Information: www.asfederal.org or 724-375-0248.
