ARC Federal Credit Union

Founded in 1956, ARC Federal Credit Union is here to serve the financial needs of our members by providing amazing rates and satisfaction on a wide variety of financial services.

You may have heard of credit unions before, but do you know what the benefits are of joining one? For starters, their main interest isn’t in making money – it’s in helping their members to financially prosper. It’s through this dedication to their members that they’ve created a system where individuals can receive the same products and services as provided by banks, but at much better rates. The rates on loans are lower and the rates on savings accounts are higher. If you too would like to indulge in these amazing benefits, then come and join the ARC Federal Credit Union today! We’ve been around for 57 years, so you can trust us to provide the tools you need to reach your financial goals. From checking and deposit accounts to a variety of loan services, we’ll provide anything you need to stay financially strong for many years to come. We’re only interested in earning your satisfaction, so there’s no hassle, no surprises, and no reason to not join today. To get started, please visit our website at or call our toll-free number at 877.946.0857 – you’ll be happy you did.

Kicking off #PCUAConnect today in Hershey, Pa. Can't wait for some great sessions on how to get better at doing what we love - serving our members!

Did you know that credit unions don't just like to work with you, we like to work with each other! Our annual #PCUAConnect just got off to a great start with a presentation by Brian Olsen's Art in Action. If you've never heard of him before, he's definitely worth a Google! 😉 #GrowWithUs

We've been visiting with our friends at Garvey Manor today for their employee Health & Wellness Fair. It's always great to get out and spend time with our SEGs (Select Employer Groups). They make up our credit union and our community!

[05/13/19]   "P.Y.F."
Do you know what this important budgeting acronym stands for?

The plus side to all this rain is, we know a great place to get a loan if you need to buy a boat, or figure out why you have an in-ground pool where your basement used to be...

Athlete Spotlight:
Liam Thompson plays T-Ball for 1st City Motor Sales in Barrington, NH. He is the grandson of Jeff and Diane Friday. Diane has been part of the staff at ARC for 8 years and wanted to share this photo with us. Good luck this season Liam!

"We don't accomplish anything in this world alone..." An important thing to remember, and one of the reasons ARC will be here to help you achieve your financial - and life - goals.

“We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone … and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads form one to another that create something.” –Sandra Day O’Connor


Hi. My name is Penny and I'm not having a great day. I was having a great time over the past few months. I really enjoyed the holidays and even bought myself a gift - a new shiny red Frog Focus! But now the credit card bills are coming and it's not so much fun. I can't even remember some of the things I bought. I hope I can figures this out. I don't like being underwater. @PACUFoundation

Follow along on the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation page to find out how to help #SavePenny2019

Well, today isn't much better. I'm so distracted at my job at the Fly Factory 'cause all I can think about is how I'm going to pay my bills. Something will turn up thought, I just know it. #SavePenny2019
