Our story begins in 1953 when a group of public school teachers recognized the need for better financial options for educators. With their ingenuity and a simple $5 in a cigar box, First Financial was formed. What started as a common desire to help each other borrow and save, and to make a positive difference in the community, has grown to our unrelenting focus on making the lives of our members better.

Although TABCO Federal Credit Union, as we were known then, was created to serve Baltimore County Public School employees, we have grown to serve the employees, students, and parents of the Baltimore and Carroll County Public School systems, as well as the employees and families of many businesses including the Y in Central Maryland.

First Financial strives to offer the very best financial products and services in order to meet the diverse needs of our members, and to help our members live better every day. With so many choices for financial services in your neighborhood or online, we know that we need to do more than just what is expected; we need to do what matters. Today, tomorrow and always, First Financial members and our community remain at the heart of everything we do. So join us, and be a part of something special…be a part of the First Financial difference.
