In 1955, AAFCU was created to serve the cadets, officers, and civilians of the newly established United States Air Force Academy at Lowry Air Force Base. Our military roots give us strength – strength to grow and to serve so many more. In addition to serving all active and retired military service members, we also serve educators, health care professionals, small businesses and so many more.
We are a full-service financial institution who believes in providing custom, caring solutions to meet your immediate financial needs and achieve your long-term goals. As a lifelong financial partner committed to your success, AAFCU will be with you, helping you prepare for a better tomorrow…today.
