VyStar Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Formerly Jax Navy Federal Credit Union, VyStar was chartered in 1952 by 12 founding members with $60 at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville to provide civil service and military personnel and their families a safe place to save and borrow money.
Headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, VyStar currently serves anyone who lives or works in the 49 contiguous counties of Central to North Florida and four Southeast Georgia counties of Camden, Charlton, Glynn and Ware. We are the 4th largest financial institution in Northeast Florida with more than $9 billion in assets and over 680,000 members. VyStar is the largest mortgage lender in Northeast Florida. We are nationally ranked as the 15th largest credit union in the country among 5,800+ credit unions by asset size, and the 14th largest employer in Northeast Florida with over 1,600 employees.
VyStar has 57 full-service branches, 16 high school branches and over 230 ATMs conveniently located in Northeast to Central Florida, and a network of 20,000+ surcharge-free ATMs across the U.S.
VyStar’s strategic vision is to be the primary financial institution for our members and to bring credit union services to more people. We offer a full range of deposit and loan services for consumers and businesses along with an array of non-deposit products and services, including investments, retirement planning and financial counseling.
VyStar strongly believes in supporting our local nonprofits and communities, and we have made a long-standing commitment to creating and supporting financial literacy for our members. As a not-for-profit community credit union, VyStar understands the importance of giving back to our communities and reflecting the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.”
