The IBEW Local 5 FCU is a member-owned financial institution whose purpose is to promote and assist in the financial well-being of members by providing professional, personal, competitive, safe and sound financial services within the financial ability of the Credit Union, IBEW Local 5 FCU was started in 1974 by a small group of electricians. Our charter was approved on September 17th, 1974 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The original location was in Downtown Pittsburgh, in the Grant building. In April 1985 our offices moved to the Local’s new building at 150 River Avenue, on the first floor. We remained there until February 1999 when we moved our office temporarily to 503 Martindale Street. They tore our building down to make way for the new PNC Ballpark, in August 2001 we moved to our new and current location at 5 Hot Metal Street, suite 201, Pittsburgh PA 15203.
Board and Committee members volunteer their time and service to ensure the continued success of the Credit Union for its members. The Credit Union has been fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers throughout the years along with the generous support of our Sponsor IBEW Local Union 5.
