Our History of Putting You First
Serving You Community Since 1956
For more than sixty-five years, our credit union has worked to make a difference for Utah. We value the
communities where you live, work, learn and grow, and, to ensure those communities can continue to
advance, we will always put your needs first. During the past decades, we’ve been growing into one of the
most trusted financial institutions in our state. Here’s a look at some of the most important milestones
in our recent history.
--- 2004, University First Federal Credit Union
In 2004, we expanded our field of membership from those affiliated with the University of Utah, to anyone
who lives, works, worships, goes to school, or volunteers in Salt Lake County, along with the immediate

This expansion marked an important milestone for our growth and trajectory, laying the groundwork for a
modern credit union that could better serve larger and growing communities.
--- 2020, Field of Membership Expansion
In 2020, our field of membership expanded further to include Salt Lake, Davis, Utah, Wasatch, Summit, and
Tooele Counties. With the ability to establish roots in even more Utah communities, we experienced major
growth in our organization, assets, employees and the communities we serve.
--- 2021, Forbes "Best Credit Union in Utah"
In 2021, we were named “Best Credit Union in Utah” by Forbes for offering superior customer service,
financial advice, branch service, digital services, and for the trust we’ve fostered with our members and
--- 2022, Our Biggest Name Change
In January of 2022, nearly sixty-six years after we first began serving Utah, we will go forward with a
new name that better reflects our presence in the Utah community and exemplifies our philosophy of serving
members. After January 18, 2022, we are UFirst Credit Union.
With the strength of our history and the momentum of our growth, we’re ready to help you achieve more,
too. Looking ahead, we know the best is yet to come!
