Tower Federal Credit Union was formed in 1953 when its seven original members pooled together their money, each contributing $5. Since its inception, Tower has grown to be the largest federal credit union in Maryland with $3.15 billion in assets and 187,953 members worldwide.
Tower is a co-operative organization that exists for the financial well-being of its member-owners. Unlike banks, there are no stockholders to pay. Profits are returned to members by keeping rates fair, fees few and low, performance high and deposits safe. As a member-owned, not-for-profit financial institution, Tower is committed to meeting our members’ diverse financial needs through unbeatable value, superior service, and untiring innovation. We provide top-notch financial products and services for our members.
Headquartered in Laurel, Md., Tower has branches in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Howard and Prince George’s counties as well as at Fort Meade. Find out who we serve.
After more than 60 years of serving you, Tower remains committed to its founding principles of sound money management and prudent lending practices. Tower strives to deliver value to its members through service excellence, price, honesty, convenience and safety.

With a credit union, you get the same stability you’d get with a bank, because your deposits are federally insured for up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
Tower Federal Credit Union is proud to have been the driving force behind the creation of the TowerCares Foundation. TowerCares is a separate entity that provides a vehicle for Tower members and employees, along with local businesses and others, to give back to their community. TowerCares’ mission is to support children in need as well as brave and heroic individuals who have sacrificed while defending our freedom, and their impacted families. Tower Federal Credit Union plans to be an ardent supporter of TowerCares. For more information, visit towercaresfoundation.org.
