Eglin Federal Credit Union opens new Pace branch

FORT WALTON BEACH, FL (April 23, 2024) — Eglin Federal Credit Union held a ribbon cutting ceremony today at its new Pace Branch located at 4413 US-90. This is EFCU’s third location in Santa Rosa County with the Navarre Branch opening nearly 17 years in August 2007. The Gulf Breeze ATM/Video Teller location opened in September 2023. As part of the Credit Union’s growth and expansion efforts, La Macchia Group is the design/build firm for the new Pace Branch. The Freeport Branch is opening soon, and the Operations Center is expected to be completed this summer.

The National Credit Union Administration recently approved expanding EFCU’s field of membership to include anyone who lives, works (or regularly conducts business in), worships or attends school, and businesses and other legal entities in specific geographic locations within Santa Rosa County, Escambia County, Florida as well as Escambia County, Alabama.

Eglin Federal Credit Union President/CEO Jerry Williams said, “There are approximately 15,000 members in Santa Rosa County, and we are looking forward to extending the benefits of membership to our new neighbors near our new Pace Branch. We chose this convenient location to provide easy access to affordable products and services as well as financial wellness resources that add value to this community.”

The Pace Branch is approximately 4,400 square feet, showcasing a new open branch design that features a member engagement area with interactive touch screen monitors. This is a full-service branch with safe deposit boxes, a Coinstar® machine, night drop, touch screen video tellers and drive-thru ATMs.
