Navy Federal: Commitment to Service

Like the men and women serving in the military, service is at the heart of Navy Federal Credit Union. From a humble beginning of just seven members back in 1933 to more than 5.9 million members today, our credit union has succeeded because of our commitment to service.

Locally, we have branches in Bremerton and Silverdale, and through those locations we serve more than 47,000 members. Navy Federal is constantly looking for ways to make sure our members get the best experience possible when they visit one of our branches.

Our Silverdale Branch opened in 1985, while our Bremerton location originally opened on Auto Center Way in 2002. As our credit union grew, we quickly realized we needed a new place in Bremerton to call home. In January of this year we relocated to our current home on Pacific Avenue. We are proud of the successful relationship we’ve had serving our members who live and work in the Kitsap community.

Ten years ago, a credit union branch may have been the primary place where members would deposit a check, withdraw cash or pay a bill. You can still accomplish those tasks at our branches, but these days our focus is to provide a higher level of service to our members.

We are here to make accessing your accounts easy as possible. If you are a Navy Federal member and haven’t tried our Mobile Banking* service on your phone, our friendly staff can show you how it works. No matter where you are, you can deposit a check, pay a bill, transfer funds or simply check your balance through our smartphone app.

While we have invested in improving the mobile banking experience, we have not forgotten about the importance of our branches.

When you walk inside the Bremerton and Silverdale Branches, one of the first things you will see is a sign which reads, “We serve where you serve.” Active Duty military, retirees and their families are the core of our membership. We understand those who make sacrifices for our country have unique financial needs. To help meet those needs, our staff can provide great insight into the products and services Navy Federal offers.

As part of our commitment to service, we are honored to be affiliated with the Navy League and its mission to support all of America’s air, land and sea services.
