Get Started With First Choice

Hi and welcome to the First Choice Federal Credit Union’s newest resource, the First Choice Information website.

Everyone needs help, right? When it comes to information, you can never have enough.

Whether you are a seasoned investor, a first time home owner or a parent wanting to give your child the right life-lessons with their money, we wanted to provide a resource to address your needs. What has come together is an archive of information, questions and answers, tutorials, videos and even more.

Want some direction getting started?

STEP ONE: Get your questions answered right now!

The fastest way to get started here is to go through our Question and Answer section.
