Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union was founded more than 85 years ago to serve local educators. Over the following decades, ETFCU has welcomed members from other occupational fields, both within the tristate and across the region. The credit union currently serves more than 265,000 members with 28 branches in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

On September 12, 2022, ETFCU changed its name to Liberty Federal Credit Union.

We are changing our name to better represent our entire membership. However, you can rest assured that we remain the same nationally recognized credit union focused on providing superior value for all your financial needs.

President and CEO



Will you continue to offer Vertical Checking?

Yes! We are changing our name, but we will remain the exact same credit union—including all the accounts, services, locations, and staff you’ve come to know and love. And that includes Vertical Checking, our popular (and free) high-interest checking account.

How will changing your name affect our schools?

This change will not affect our commitment to our schools. We remain rooted within the educational community. Our continued expansion allows us to increase our financial support of schools—both locally and in all the areas we serve.

Why did you choose Liberty as your new name?

As we continue to expand our branch footprint, it is important that our brand be inclusive of members from all professions and geographic areas. The Liberty brand offers this inclusivity. We currently operate several branch offices outside the Evansville area under the Liberty brand. We have seen a positive response from both new and existing members in those areas.

The credit union’s growth provides the resources to continuously improve our products and services. It also allows us to provide more financial support for our schools and charitable organizations in the communities we serve.

No, we are still the same nationally recognized credit union you’ve come to know and trust.

Why are you changing your name?

Liberty Federal Credit Union serves an increasingly diverse and widespread membership of more than 265,000 members from all types of professions and geographic regions.
