It was the year 1909 when Pierre Jay, the first banking commissioner of Massachusetts, was successful in getting the first credit union act passed in the commonwealth. Many other states followed suit, and then in 1934, the Federal Credit Union Act was enacted, establishing a federal charter and a choice of charter for credit unions. Today, there are more than 7,000 credit unions, state and federal, serving the financial needs of our nation’s citizens.
