Powering ComEd & Exelon Employees since 1944

Founded by Commonwealth Edison employees for Commonwealth Edison employees

2024 Bi-Weekly Calendar  2024 Semi-Monthly Calendar

Our membership began when Commonwealth Edison established separate credit unions for each of its departments in the early 1940s. When ComEd dissolved its credit unions, a handful of employees took it upon themselves to keep the idea of a financial cooperative alive. Their innovations paid off. Not only did they receive $5,000 and some office space and equipment from ComEd, they also gained approval to incorporate a credit union. 

On March 1, 1944, Edison Credit Union was born, and in 1999 we changed our name to First Northern Credit Union. And in October 2000, when Exelon was formed by the joining of Unicom Corporation (formerly Commonwealth Edison Company) and PECO Energy Company (formerly Philadelphia Electric Company), we proudly offered our services to employees of all companies.

We're still powering ComEd & Exelon nearly 80 years later.

We've been serving Commonwealth Edison & Exelon employees for nearly 80 years. Stop on by and learn more about why thousands of your colleagues have chosen to "bank" with us for decades!
