1st Advantage Opens New Branch


NEWPORT NEWS—1st Advantage Federal Credit Union recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of one of their newest branches. The new branch is located inside the Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News.

The branch relocated from a previous site inside the Riverside complex and is now more centrally positioned for better access and convenience. The Riverside branch was recently added through the Riverside Health System Employee Credit Union merger as 1st Advantage’s fourth Newport News-based branch. The addition of this branch extends the credit union’s footprint to include 14 branch locations within Hampton Roads and outlying areas.

Paul Muse, President and CEO of 1st Advantage said, “We are excited for the opportunity to offer convenient and reliable banking services within Riverside, and look forward to serving our members from this location for many years to come.”

Membership in 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Hampton Roads, and parts of Richmond and North Carolina, and to any immediate family members of current 1st Advantage members. On the Peninsula, 1st Advantage has branches in Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, and Williamsburg.

The new branch will be open Monday–Friday from 9am–4:30pm. For additional information on becoming a member or to view a list of the products and services they provide, visit their website.
