Justice Federal Credit Union has $100 million to lend now

CHANTILLY, VA (May 18, 2016) — Earlier this year, Justice Federal Credit Union’s team of Managers determined that the institution would focus its efforts on lending. There’s never been a better time to demonstrate to our Members what really sets us apart from other financial institutions, the ability to lend. And, in doing so, we get back to our roots,” said Peter Sainato, President and CEO.

Founded in 1935 during economic hard times, with only $137 dollars in assets and 41 charter Members, 12 Department of Justice employees pooled their monies together to extend loans to fellow employees in need. “Today, more than 80 years later, the Credit Union continues to uphold the credit union philosophy, honored by our founders, which is “People Helping People,and reaffirms our dedication and commitment to support the financial needs of our Members and their families for generations to come,” said Sainato.

We Have Money To Lend Now!

Whether Members are planning to renovate or purchase a home, buy a new car, take care of an emergency expense, further their education, or pay for a dream wedding or vacation, Justice Federal Credit Union has the perfect borrowing solution.

“We understand. When it comes to borrowing decisions, Members may be hesitant because of past actions of the Federal Government─ shutdowns, sequestration and furloughs could threaten their financial wellbeing. Therefore, we offer our promise to provide special financial assistance should these events ever occur in the future in the form of unsecured, low interest rate loans, and deferred auto loan, mortgage and credit card payments,” said Sainato.

To apply for a loan, Members may visit, their nearest branch, or call 800.550.5328.
