Our Story

Premier Federal Credit Union was originally chartered in 1963 as Cone Federal Credit Union by our founding sponsor Cone Mills Corporation. For nearly 50 years, our credit union has been providing exceptional financial services to our member-owners.

In 1989, we changed our name to Premier Federal Credit Union to expand our membership base and offer our services to other companies. Today, our credit union serves more than 400 companies in North and South Carolina and more than 24,000 members like you.

If you would like to join Premier, we welcome you to refer to our current company member list to determine your eligibility.
