    About Us

    Empower Federal Credit Union is a full-service financial institution that provides savings, loans, and other financial products to members in Central New York, and in eight counties throughout New York State. As a credit union, Empower is a financial cooperative and is not-for-profit. In 2007, a merger of equals occurred between Power and Empire to create Empower Federal Credit Union. Power Federal Credit Union was founded in 1939 by nine employees of what was then CNY Power Corporation/Niagara Mohawk (currently National Grid). Empire Federal Credit Union was established in 1950 as Syracuse District Telephone Employees Federal Credit Union, by employees of the Syracuse office of the New York Telephone Company. Several other credit unions also merged with us throughout our history.

Whether a member walks through the door of one of our many branch locations, visits us online, or calls us on the phone - We remember every member has a story and every story is unique. We understand this and make it personal.
