Nova UA Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1959 as Self Reliance (Passaic, NJ) Federal Credit Union. Since inception, we have maintained the same sponsor and subsequently became a community charter.

Founded on the principle of people helping people, our credit union provided and continues to provide financial services that help our members enhance their quality of life. Today the credit union offers a host of lending, savings and other services to ensure the highest degree of member satisfaction. Additionally, our credit union continues to support various cultural activities, which foster the traditions of the communities in which we serve.

Originally, we maintained an office on Hope Avenue in Passaic, New Jersey and in 1989, our Board of Directors purchased our present location, 851 Allwood Road, Clifton, New Jersey.

In April 1993, to further expand our services and reach a greater portion of our membership, we changed our name to Self Reliance (NJ) Federal Credit Union.

In 2015, Self Reliance (NJ) Federal Credit Union reached over $100m in assets.

In 2016, our Credit Union was ranked #2 Healthiest Credit Union in the nation among 6,003 Credit Unions.

In September of 2016, to elevate level of service, our Credit Union changed its name to Nova UA Federal Credit Union. At the same time, to improve customer service and insure high standards of service for our members, we started renovating of our Main Office at 851 Allwood Road in Clifton.

For the time of construction, our Main Office relocated to 387 Valley Road in Clifton. Our Botany Village branch facility is located at 237 Dayton Avenue in Clifton.

We proudly welcome you to the Nova UA Federal Credit Union family, and are confident that through our efforts and dedication, Nova UA Federal Credit Union will provide the utmost service to you, and will become your premier financial service provider!
