Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union was first chartered in 1966 and continues to serve the community with 14 branches across Louisiana five decades later. As a member-owned, not-for-profit credit union comprised of more than 52,000 members with over 150 employees across six Louisiana parishes – the third-largest credit union in Louisiana – Jefferson Financial stands ready to serve our friends and neighbors across Southern Louisiana.
“Jefferson Financial continues to be a significant, growth-oriented company dedicated to serving our members and educating others about the benefit of credit union membership,” says Mark Rosa, CEO. “One of the top perks of belonging to a credit union is that you have the opportunity to earn higher yields on savings and borrow money at lower financing rates.”
Our mission is and always has been to help members achieve financial success! Members enjoy many of the same services offered by traditional banks, such as Online and Mobile Banking – this also includes a wide variety of loan products like Auto, Mortgage, Personal Loans and more. Additionally, members can refinance their auto loan from another financial institution with Jefferson Financial.
New technology is now being offered at our Highway 22 Branch in Mandeville and our 3900 Veterans Branch in Metairie – this technology includes new self-service ITM units in the drive-thru, which are available to members with 24/7 account access. Members can deposit cash/checks, withdraw cash, transfer funds between account, make loan payment and print mini statements.
Annually, we award over $20,000 in scholarships to 20 high school seniors through our Peter C. Bertucci Scholarship Program. Recipients must be members of JFFCU who demonstrate academic excellence, commitment to community and school involvement.
Most recently, we were involved in community partnerships that benefited the St. Tammany area. During one of St. Tammany’s highest peaks of COVID-19 cases in August 2021, we donated 100 goodie bags to St. Tammany Hospital’s COVID-19 Unit frontline hospital staff.
Following Hurricane Ida, we hosted a company-wide food drive that yielded over 700 pounds of donated food and made a $250 donation to Second Harvest Food Bank. This single event provided almost 2,000 meals to residents in St. Tammany Parish as well as other neighboring parishes.
Jefferson Financial FCU is – and always has been – a great financial partner for our members and community. We look forward to the opportunity to meet potential new members and continue to serve our existing members and community partners in St. Tammany.
We look forward to meeting you. Stop by our Mandeville branches – 4650 Hwy 22 or 4005 Hwy 59. “Our staff is ready to assist you with all of your banking needs!” Brandi Brady, Mandeville Branch Manager
