About Us

Bessemer System Federal Credit Union was formed in 1943 by employees of the Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad, with headquarters in Greenville Pennsylvania.  In 1982, the members of the Bessemer railroad's Pittsburgh office credit union merged into our credit union.  We opened our membership to outside groups in 1988.  On August 1, 2000, the former Greenville Area Federal Credit Union merged into our credit union. In 2005, we became a Community Credit Union, which allows us to accept anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Mercer County, as well as businesses and other legal entities located in Mercer County, Pennsylvania.

Although we have grown in size and in the services which we offer, we still pride ourselves on being able to provide personal service to our members. We invite you to experience “The Credit  Union Difference”, by opening an account today.


  • There are no fees for membership. The initial minimum deposit is $50 in a share account. This deposit establishes ownership in the credit union and makes one eligible for all the other benefits and services available. Don't forget, your immediate family is eligible to join.
  • Once you have joined our credit union, all you need to do is maintain a minimum of $50 in your regular savings account to keep your membership active. This will enable you to take advantage of all the benefits for which you qualify.
  • As a member of our credit union, you are one of the owners. Show your support by taking advantage of all the services we have to offer.
  • Those members with checking and/or loan accounts receive monthly statements. Those members without checking and/or loan accounts will receive quarterly statements.
  • Once a member, always a member. Your membership is not canceled if you move or leave your place of employment.
