PenFed is committed to the careers of all those who serve and have served in our military community including veterans, military spouses, wounded warriors, care-givers, surviving spouses, Reservists, and National Guardsmen.  We value the character, experience and skills possessed by all those who have served our country in our military community and we actively seek them out to join our team.  In fact, PenFed’s President and CEO, James Schenck, is a veteran as are many of our board members and senior leaders.  They know first-hand what our military community brings to the table and how their talent benefits both our company and our members. To further support our commitment to serving the military community, PenFed has recently launched a Military Employment Program dedicated to connecting military talent with rewarding careers at PenFed.  We believe our company is strengthened and our customers better served by the presence of veterans on our teams and that they contribute significantly to the success of both our company and our members.

“For more than 83 years, PenFed has been committed to serving our nation’s defenders and those who support them,” said PenFed President and CEO James Schenck. “Through our Military Employment Program, we will actively seek out members of the military community to join our team and work to ensure they have long and successful careers with PenFed. We greatly value their skills, experience, leadership, and perhaps most of all, their passion for service. These qualities make them invaluable additions to our team.”

PenFed has a very strong legacy of being a Military Friendly company:

  • PenFed was established in 1935 as the War Department Credit Union and has been serving the financial needs of the Military Community for more than eighty years.
  • The PenFed Foundation was founded in 2001 and since then has provided more than $30 million in financial support to veterans, active duty service members, families, and caregivers.  The Foundation supports the military Community through financial education, credit building, home ownership, and short-term financial assistance in addition to helping Veteran entrepreneurs succeed in business.
  • PenFed donates 1% of its annual net income to charitable causes with the majority going to military charities.
  • PenFed employees volunteer significant time to supporting military charities.  Serving as a community leader in charitable giving is simply who we are as a company.
  • We have positions that may be able to travel for military spouses with branches serving military installations in the U.S. and overseas.
  • We attend dozens of military career fairs and transition events annually in an effort to connect with military talent.
  • We work and partner with dozens of Veteran Employment Organizations as well as dozens of individual base Transition Assistance Program offices.
  • We have an Employee Assistance Program that can assist our veteran employees with connecting to veteran resources.
  • We offer Military Leave and Military Family Leave entitlements.
  • In 2018, we launched a Military Employment Initiative that will strive to connect the Military Community with rewarding PenFed careers and help us earn the reputation as an Employer of Choice for the Military.
