She was a selected winner at for a scholarship. I am so proud of you baby for always being willing to go the extra mile. You are a dedicated young lady.
I cannot be the only person becoming ever more frustrated with the seemingly constant changes of things that were not broken. I was perfectly happy with my debit MasterCard. Why did you break it? Why? Why? Is there some corporate officer that takes some perverse delight in messing with CU members in general, and me specifically. There was no reason to make a change. None.
I think your online banking is down
Having issues with new Visa card. I can not transfer money from my checking/savings acct to the Visa card when on line. In fact, when I go to "credit card" under "services", all I can see is my balance, available balance, and that's it... Then there is no way to get back to credit union home page without having to re-log in again. Also, this added security code step info keeps coming up each time I log-in. I have tried to contact the credit union numerous times via phone, but hold times in excess of 15 minutes are more than what I can continue to wait.
Amazing people! Best customer service.
Hey Everyone, I have a boy from Germany that I am looking for a host family for the school year! He is 15 and loves chess! He says he has played for 10 years. He also loves the Fire Brigade and says he is a member completing his 60 hours firefighters education. He loves model flight and has made Fixed wing, helicopters and quadcopters. If that wasn't enough he also loves American Football and is on a football club in Germany! If anyone can help this kiddo out and host him for the school year please let me know! A lot of deadlines for school are this and next week! Thank you!

Our Story

One day at Fire Station #1, two well dressed men from Washington DC tried to convince the fire fighters that they would save money by starting a credit union instead of paying exorbitant interest rates for loans at banks. Twelve men out of the 33 stationed there would have to invest a quarter each to start the organization. Frank Barletta threw in the third quarter, "but before it stopped spinning, the room had emptied. It took begging, pleading and a little threatening to get 12 firemen to ante up". On April 9, 1935 Houston Texas Fire Fighters Federal Credit Union was granted a federal charter by the National Credit Union Administration in Washington DC to open for business. Total assets were $3 - kept safe in a locked drawer of a roll top desk and insured by the full faith of the United States government.

For 45 years the credit union remained open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in downtown Houston. It was operated and managed exclusively by fire fighters who volunteered their services - many times being awakened in the middle of the night to conduct credit union business. Cash loans were made routinely for household appliances, groceries and cars. By 1980 total assets had grown to $13 million.

In 1982 the credit union started construction on its own building at 4200 Kolb Street and still resides in the same location with over 20,000 square feet of office space and a six lane drive through. In the last decade two full service branches on the north and south sides of Houston have been added.

Today HTFFFCU is a full service financial institution with over $250 million in assets and $130 million in loans to members. In addition, the federal government continues to rate the credit union at the highest level of safety and security in assets. The original purpose of "people helping people" has remained the primary focus of the credit union's mission.
