Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union serves the high-tech and professional communities in Albuquerque, NM and Livermore, CA.
In 1948, 15 employees of Sandia National Laboratories saw the need for a credit union in Albuquerque. Since then, Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union has been dedicated to offering high value and outstanding personal service. Today, SLFCU has eleven branches in New Mexico and California's Bay Area, more than 101,000 members, and more than $2.5 billion in assets.
As a not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperative that exists solely to serve its members, SLFCU can usually offer better rates on almost everything from car loans to credit cards. We don’t focus on making profits and paying stockholders. Instead, we use earnings to lower loan rates, raise savings rates, and reduce fees. SLFCU offers the mortgages, consumer loans, and secure deposit accounts you need for financial success.
Credit Unions all share the same philosophy: people helping people. We pride ourselves on serving members, not only as a financial institution, but also through financial education, community, and charitable causes.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
SLFCU is governed by a Board of nine members elected by the membership. Board members serve three-year terms. Any adult member in good standing is eligible to run for the board. Those wishing to stand for office must obtain sufficient signatures from other members to meet election requirements. Please use the Contact Us link at the top to request details.
THE SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE
The Supervisory Committee has retained the certified public accounting firm of Moss Adams LLP to conduct an independent audit of SLFCU's financial statements. At the completion of the audit, the full report will be available at the Credit Union's administrative office for review by the membership.
In addition, at the direction of the Supervisory Committee, both internal audit staff and independent audit firms are utilized to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the credit union’s risk management, internal control, and governance processes.
If you have questions or concerns, we will address them promptly. You can submit concerns regarding Credit Union policies and procedures, conflicts of interest, and/or fraud to: SLFCU Supervisory Committee, PO Box 13045, Albuquerque, NM 87191.
Our annual reports include interviews with our Board Chairperson and President/CEO, information on our financial performance, and member profiles.
Members may request a copy of our most recent annual report by visiting any branch or calling us.
SLFCU members and our sponsor, Sandia National Laboratories, have been active in the community for more than half a century. The Credit Union is proud to support the community through sponsorships, scholarships, donations, and volunteer work. In addition to the organizations listed below, our employees and members support many other community groups that are important to them.
