Our History


Palisades Federal Credit Union (PFCU) started out as the Lederle Employees Federal Credit Union. LEFCU was originally charted in 1941, by a small group of employees of the American Cyanamid Company. They were dedicated to building a financial institution that would provide outstanding financial services at the lowest possible cost.

Over the ensuing years Lederle Employees Federal Credit Union grew to include the immediate family members of existing members and took on newer products and services. In 1996, LEFCU changed its name to Palisades Federal Credit Union and began to acquire new Select Employee Groups into its field of membership.

In June of 2002, we became the first federal community chartered credit union in Rockland County to serve all persons who live, work, worship, or attend school in Rockland County, New York.

With over $150 million in assets and over 11,000 members, Palisades Federal Credit Union is the largest Rockland County Based Credit Union.
