“Plus our Googoplex ® link familiarizes elementary, middle and high school students with proper money management. And there is a wealth of advice and tips in our Home & Family Finance Resource Center that offers information on credit, retirement, housing, small business, insurance, saving and investing, plus many more topics.

“There’s also a link to our OCFCU Facebook page and to member discounts available from Sprint® mobile phone service. Our new site is just another example of how our members are like family.”

Founded in 1975, OCFCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative association, which serves more than 6,300 members from throughout Oswego County. OCFCU’s charter was revised in early 2007 so that anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Oswego County is eligible to join.
