Who we are

Bethpage Federal Credit Union has been serving its members and their communities for over 80 years.

Just like when we first opened our doors for Grumman employees in 1941, we’re keeping our promise to continuously meet the changing needs of our members with personal service, convenience, and value.

I have been a member of Bethpage for over 40 years and wouldn’t have stayed if it wasn’t for their superior service, knowledge and professionalism. 100% satisfied!

Member benefits

We offer a wide array of savings and loan products with great rates and low fees to meet your growing financial needs.

As a credit union, we believe banking is about more than just numbers. We want to help members achieve their dreams by offering an alternative to big banks.


At Bethpage, we understand members can’t always get to a branch to do their banking.

That’s why Bethpage makes it convenient for members to manage their accounts anytime, anywhere with access to more than 5,000 CO-OP Shared Branches, nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide through the CO-OP ATM Network, and 24/7 digital banking.



On October 28, 1941, the Grumman Plant 1 and 2 Federal Credit Union officially opens its doors as a financial alternative for Grumman employees to manage their earnings. It started with 114 members and the goal of meeting the changing needs of its members through personal service and value.
