West York Area School District Employees Federal Credit Union members voted to merge into First Capital Federal Credit Union. Both are located in York, Pennsylvania.

West York Area School District Employees Federal Credit Union was established in 1965 to provide employees of the West York School District the chance to borrow and save with their own credit union. “We are excited to be part of the First Capital family,” said Craig Smith, board chairman of West York Area School District Employees Federal Credit Union. “The merger with First Capital will ensure that our members receive access to a wider range of products, services, and benefits.” A statement from the two credit unions said the merger was driven by staff retirements.

“First Capital is honored to welcome West York Area School District Employees Federal Credit Union members,” said Sue DeStephano, president/CEO. “We have had such a great relationship with West York Area School District over the years, we are thrilled about this merger.”

According to Credit Union Times, nearly 1,000 members belong to the $4.9 million West York Area School District Employees FCU and the $223 million First Capital serves a membership of more than 19,000. First Capital’s SEGs include 581 companies and organizations across York County and the nation.

West York Area School District Employees Federal Credit Union will merge into First Capital Federal Credit Union effective Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
