Teachers Federal Credit Union

Teachers Federal Credit Union (Teachers), located in Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Research Support Building (Bldg. 400), is a full-service branch offering teller-supported transactions, a wide range of products, and advice from financial service experts.

With membership open to all, Teachers’ top priority is what’s best for its members’ financial future, including lower rates on loans, fewer and lower fees, and higher yields.

  • Laboratory employees, facility-users, and guests with Brookhaven National Laboratory identification badges can cash Brookhaven Lab payroll checks at Teachers. However, the credit union cannot cash personal or traveler's checks unless you are a Teachers member.
  • All Brookhaven Lab and Brookhaven Science Associates checks can be cashed at Teachers with proper identification, regardless if you have an account.
