Established in 1954 as Pine Castle Air Force Base Federal Credit Union, the original FOM was exclusive to members of the military based at Pine Castle AFB. Four years later, the AFB was renamed McCoy Air Force Base (honoring Colonel Michael N.W. McCoy) and the credit union rebranded as McCoy Federal Credit Union. A community charter was adopted in 1981, following the closure of McCoy AFB. Three charter expansions (in 1997, 2003, and 2006) and two mergers (Central Florida Healthcare FCU in 2008 and Gulf States Credit Union in 2022) contributed to McCoy FCU’s growth. Currently the 27th largest credit union headquartered in Florida, McCoy Federal Credit Union has more than 79,000 members and assets of more than $946 million.
