Nearly 75 years ago, our credit union got its start in Columbus, IN, when 8 employees of the Cummins Engine Company founded the Cummins Employees Federal Credit Union. Their goal: to identify a source of low-cost credit and a convenient place to save their hard-earned money. At their first organizational meeting, these employees set Credit Union policies such as a maximum deposit of $7.50 per week and an unsecured loan limit of $25. A charter was granted to the Credit Union on October 31, 1940.
In 1995, we changed our name to Centra Federal Credit Union to reflect our organization’s growth and diversity. The credit union became state-chartered in 1997 and is known today as Centra Credit Union.
