Cinfed History Timeline

Thanks to the ongoing support of our members, Cinfed has a rich past and a promising future. We look forward to continuing to grow and serve our members for another 80+ years.


    Cinfed Credit Union was founded when nine federal employees gathered to organize the Cincinnati Federation of Federal Employees Credit Union, Inc. Originally, a credit union for members of the Local #75 Federation of Federal Employees Union.



    The field of membership was amended to include all active or retired federal employees in Cincinnati and vicinity and the name was changed to Cincinnati Federal Employees Credit Union, Inc.



    Membership was expanded to include the families of credit union members.



    The credit union became a federally chartered credit union and the name changed to Cinfed Employees Federal Credit Union.



    Hamilton County Employees Federal Credit Union merged with Cinfed.



    Southern Ohio Regional Transit Authority Federal Credit Union (SORTA) merged with Cinfed.



    Tool Steel Federal Credit Union merged with Cinfed.



    Cinfed Credit Union became a Community Chartered Federal Credit Union. Anyone who lives, works, worships, attends school or regularly conducts business in Hamilton, Kenton, Campbell or Boone counties is eligible to join.



    Cinfed Credit Union opened a new full service branch in Oakley, Ohio, on Monday, April 3rd in the new Cinfed Headquarters building at 4801 Kennedy Avenue in the centrally located community of Oakley. A formal grand opening was held April 28.



    Cinfed receives federal approval to expand its community charter, opening membership eligibility to residents of 15 counties across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
