About Beach Municipal Federal Credit Union
Beach Municipal Federal Credit Union has been serving the financial needs of its members since 1970. In that time, we've become more than just another financial institution ~we've become your friend, your family, and your partner in achieving your financial dreams. In October 1970, the Virginia Beach City Council unanimously voted to support a credit union as an additional benefit of employment. Shortly thereafter, Virginia Beach Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union received a federal charter from the National Credit Union Administration, giving municipal employees, retirees, volunteers and their families a safe place to save and borrow money. Since then, Beach Municipal, as we are now called, has become a full-service financial institution offering its members everything from traditional savings and checking accounts to IRAs, credit cards, mortgages and much more.
