About Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union

SLFCU 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 ten branches in New Mexico and California's Bay Area, more than 79,000 members, and over $2 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 four-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 retains both internal and external auditors to review the operations and systems of internal control at the Credit Union. Audits are structured to coordinate both audit groups, with guidance and control by the Supervisory Committee. The audit programs are prepared in accordance with professional audit standards and are designed to identify areas to improve.

The Committee has retained the certified public accounting firm of Moss Adams to conduct an independent annual review of the Credit Union's financial statements. At the completion of each review, the full report is available at the Credit Union's administrative office for review by the membership.

If you have questions or concerns, we will address them promptly. You can submit concerns regarding CU policies and procedures, conflicts of interest, and/or fraud to: SLFCU Supervisory Committee, PO Box 13045, Albuquerque, NM 87191.


Our annual reports include thoughts from our Board Chairperson and President/CEO, information on our financial performance, and member interviews.

Community Involvement

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.

Children's Hospitals of NM and Oakland, CA

We support the UNM Children's Hospital and Oakland Children's Hospital by donating a portion of proceeds from selling Sandy the Lab stuffed animals in SLFCU branches.

Roadrunner Food Bank and Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry

Food collection bins are placed in our Albuquerque branches during the winter holiday season and donations are collected for Roadrunner Food Bank and Tri-Valley Haven Food Pantry during Albuquerque and Livermore shredding events. 

The United Way

SLFCU employees generously support many different community organizations through The United Way. Employees participate through payroll deduction, creating and raffling off gift baskets, and purchasing Jeans Stickers for casual attire days.
