Our Story

For over 80 years, First Atlantic has proudly served Monmouth and Ocean counties with a full range of banking services. We put our members first!

History, Mission, & Values

Founded in 1935, First Atlantic is one of New Jersey's largest credit unions. A credit union is a not-for-profit institution that is owned by the people that use its services. These people are not customers; they are members. Any person who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Monmouth or Ocean counties may become a First Atlantic member. Any family member of a First Atlantic member can also belong to the credit union. 

To create a unique and memorable experience for OUR MEMBERS to become a valued partner in achieving their financial goals, develop OUR EMPLOYEES to achieve unparalleled personal and professional success and partner with OUR COMMUNITIES so they may benefit from our investment in the future.

Versatile, Authentic, Lighthearted, Unparalleled, Extraordinary

We are committed to providing an extraordinary member experience that is personalized, genuine and customized to the needs of our members and communities.

First Atlantic is headquartered in Eatontown, New Jersey and serves the communities within Monmouth and Ocean counties.
