American Consumer Council

At USF Federal Credit Union, we’re dedicated to delivering exceptional service to our members and equipping them with the best financial tools and resources to help them reach their goals.

That’s why we are pleased to partner with the American Consumer Council (ACC), a non-profit membership organization dedicated to consumer education, advocacy, and financial literacy.

Since 1987, the ACC has worked to ensure consumer needs are met and protected by:

  • Educating American consumers about the benefits of products and services.
  • Advocating for consumer and economic wellness in the United States.
  • Taking a business-friendly approach to advocacy by working with companies and manufacturers to offer safe, reliable products and services.
  • Promoting corporate responsibility with the treatment of consumers

USF Federal Credit Union has formed a cooperative agreement with the ACC and through this agreement, credit union members will gain access to additional education material to enhance their personal financial planning. 

In addition, members of the ACC are eligible to open accounts and enjoy the many benefits of USF Federal Credit Union membership.
