ProFinance Federal Credit Union has been successfully serving its members for 80 years.

Established in 1938, as C.I.S. (Blast Furnace & Coke Division) Employees Federal Credit Union, we changed our name to East Division Federal Credit Union in 1960. The name East Divison pertained to a section of U.S.S. Gary Works where employees were qualifed to join our credit union.

In 1999, U.S.S. Gary Works terminated our land lease and we were forced to relocate. We moved from 200 Broadway, Gary, IN, to 7700 Broadway, Merrillville, IN, which is where we reside to this day.

On January 1, 2006, we changed our name to ProFinance Federal Credit Union (PFFCU). Our name changes have been the result of geographic, maturation, and modernization over the years.


A portion of our maturation was accomplished in August 2017 when our establishment became a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).  This change made our credit union available for not just a particular affliliation or group but for all people who live in the cities of Merrillville, Gary, Hobart, Lake Station, Portage, and South Haven.  Becoming a CDFI has not only expanded our boundaries but also has allowed our establishment to become a stronger credit union.

ProFinance is committed to our growth and progress but also our unwavering commitment to our members - ProFinance is all about you!

Our goal is to help guide you to a better, brighter financial future - let us get you there!
