Congressional Federal is committed to creating financial stability in the Washington, D.C. area through its mission of offering robust financial services, resources, and education as well as empowering communities. To support this goal, they have extended their reach into multiple neighborhoods throughout DC making a meaningful impact on local lives and families.

Congressional Federal Credit Union, a trusted, full-service financial partner dedicated to serving the needs of the Capitol Hill and Washington, DC communities, announced today its expansion into multiple areas of the city. This move marks a critical phase in the credit union's mission to deliver robust financial services, resources, and education to help its members take ownership of their financial futures.

“This is a natural extension of our commitment to accessibility and solidity in providing financial services, and we believe that this expansion will allow us to better serve our membership base and the community as a whole,” said John Kirlew, VP of Marketing and Communications at Congressional Federal. “Our hope is that this growth, coupled with other recent enhancements such as our Thrive Card by Congressional Federal and updated mobile banking, will be valuable offerings to these integral DC neighborhoods that we’re proud to now have the opportunity to serve.”

Congressional Federal has already begun the process of establishing a presence in these communities and is currently working with local partners to identify useful locations for its branches. Once open, these branches will offer a full range of banking products and services, including checking and savings accounts, loans, and investment products. In addition, the credit union's staff will be available to provide financial counseling and education to members.

“We are committed to being a positive force in the communities we serve, and we look forward to working with local stakeholders to bring quality financial services to even more residents and employees of Washington, DC,” said Kirlew.

Congressional Federal has been serving the Capitol Hill community for over 70 years and has a long history of educating and guiding its members to financial stability. With its new expansion, the credit union brings a full suite of offerings uniquely developed for its member base, including financial education programs, youth banking programs, and investment services.
