Proudly Serving Members and Employees of The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints
In the 1950s, the First Presidency of the Church realized that employees of the church offices needed access to financial services; they decided to help provide these much-needed services. On August 4th, 1955, the LDS Church Office Credit Union was founded. Gordon B. Hinckley was one of the first board members.
The first branch was established in 1974, and the membership was expanded to include any employee of The Church. After steady growth in the 80s, the credit union changed its name to Deseret First Credit Union. It expanded its membership to include all members and family members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
We now have over 70,000 members across the nation and have been able to put our members first with our unique products and services.
