The Credit Union was founded in 1935 during the Great Depression by a few employees of the public school system in what was then known as Dade County. Over the past 85 years, our community has grown substantially. Today, South Florida is a rich tapestry of cultures, experiences, and opportunities that contribute to the proud legacy of our Credit Union. As our community and the financial needs of our members have evolved, so too must our organization. I am pleased to announce that we will soon be embarking on a new chapter in our history, and with it, a change to our name.
On April 1, 2021, South Florida Educational Federal Credit Union will become EdFed — The Educational Federal Credit Union.
Our new EdFed name and logo reflects the vibrant cultural mosaic of our membership, while conveying our deep and enduring commitment to serving the unique financial needs of our members. As a member-owned financial institution, serving the employees and students of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Miami Dade College and the entire educational community remains the cornerstone of our business.
This exciting change represents the culmination of a multi-year effort to strengthen our commitment to serve our nearly 90,000 members. Our transition to EdFed also heralds a number of significant and purposeful service improvements that you will see in 2021. We will be sharing more information in the months ahead about the many exciting changes you can look forward to with EdFed.
Thank you for being a loyal member.
President & CEO
