About Crossroads Financial FCU


Our History

CrossRoads was founded in 1950 by a group of Portland Forge employees who decided to band together in an effort to meet their financial needs. These foresighted individuals liked the idea of having Portland Forge Federal Credit Union, a not-for-profit, financial cooperative that would be built on a philosophy of people helping people. Owned and operated by our members, the credit union has offered an alternative to traditional banks and provides a safe place to invest money and a fair place to borrow.

Since the late 70’s, we’ve grown with the addition of many more select employer groups and through mergers with Jay School Corporation Credit Union and Indiana Glass Credit Union. In 2004, the name was changed to better describe the credit union and serve the current and future membership. The Credit Union Board of Directors selected the name CrossRoads Financial Federal Credit Union because people and finances meet at the Credit Union. This part of the Midwest is well known as the Crossroads of America and our four offices are located on or near Highways 1, 18, 26, 27, 28, 32, 49, 67 and 167!

Today, CrossRoads remains committed to our mission of “Helping members meet their financial needs… one CrossRoad at a time.” Visit the office nearest you and we’ll show you how CrossRoads can meet your financial needs.
