About Central One Federal Credit Union

Unlike a bank, Central One is a not-for-profit financial institution.

Central One is a full service, not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution serving Massachusetts residents since 1952. We are member-owned, which allows us to reinvest our profits into providing you with better rates and technology that fits your lifestyle.

Founded as an occupational-based credit union for the New England Electric System employees, Central One Federal Credit Union has grown into one of the largest federal credit unions in central Massachusetts. 

Our charter was changed to Community-based in 1998, paving the way for enhanced products and services, branch expansion, and allowing us to assist more members, and increased reinvesting support in our communities. Our team takes great pride in providing World Class Service to all our members and has earned an impressive 98.7% Satisfaction Rating. 

In March of 2021, our field of membership expanded to anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers, attends school, or owns a business in all of Worcester County as well as parts of Middlesex and Norfolk counties. Also included are family or household members of existing members, and businesses or other legal entities located within this area. For a list of towns we serve, click here.

2021 Field of Membership

Central One offers a full range of personal and business deposit and lending products with access to your accounts 24/7 through online and mobile banking apps. You are also welcome to visit any of our Branch locations or call our Member Support Center.

As a full-service credit union, Central One offers all of the personal and business products and technology innovations you'd expect from a larger national financial institution — but with local decision making and a focus on improving our members' lives.
