Our mission is to be the first institution members will come to for their financial needs while adhering to the philosophy of "People Helping People."

Port Arthur Teachers Federal Credit Union was organized in February 1953 to serve the employees of the Port Arthur Independent School District. The credit union operated in the homes of the directors for the first 20 years until it purchased the first building. Through the stable location and sound financial planning the credit union has grown to an over $20 million institution with over 4,000 members and offers a wide array of services. Port Arthur Teachers Federal Credit Union is currently located at 3001 Jimmy Johnson Blvd. in Port Arthur, Texas.

Port Arthur Teachers Federal Credit Union has expanded its charter to include a community charter allowing all that live, work, worship or attend school in PAISD boundaries to join the credit union.

Our vision is to make a difference by leaving a heartprint in the community.
