First Castle Federal Credit Union Celebrates Newest Slidell Branch as a Success

Slidell credit union branchFirst Castle Federal Credit Union expands with the opening of a third location on June 5, 2012.  The new branch on the credit union in Slidell offers even more convenience and services to its Members.

18.07.2012 17:16:09  ( – Slidell, LA — Becoming the charter credit union for all of St Tammany in 2006, First Castle Federal Credit Union (FCFCU) established its commitment to St Tammany Parish by choosing Covington, LA, for its headquarters. FCFCU is unique in that it is the only credit union that has St. Tammany Parish as its sole community to serve.

The credit union was established in 1934 serving the Corps of Engineers New Orleans District, and CEO, Kirk Arnold, saw a need in St Tammany for the products and services that a credit union could offer, and especially FCFCU.

Mr. Arnold comments, “We were considering expansion throughout 2004 and 2005, and when Hurricane Katrina hit, our plans were sidetracked until the infrastructure was back to normal allowing us to build.”

With growing membership, expansion with a new branch of the credit union in Slidell was quickly warranted.   The new branch, which officially opened for business June 5, 2012, is conveniently located in Slidell just off I-12 and is a full-service branch.

One Member comments, “I love the new branch! The new location is so close to my house that it’s really convenient.”

Arnold continues, “We really have heard tremendous positive feedback about the Slidell location, and we believe it has been a great addition in our desire to serve our present and future Members.”

The Slidell branch hours are Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm and Saturday 9:00am to 1:00pm.  The new location also offers the convenience of an ATM.

The new Slidell branch location and added services reaffirms FCFCU’s commitment to “smart banking” and strengthening the community by providing financial services benefiting the Members, not shareholders.
