Pentagon Federal Credit Union and Navy League of the United States Announce Enhanced "Preferred Provider" Financial Services Partnership

Under the New Partnership Arrangement, PenFed Will Become the Navy League's Exclusive, Preferred Financial Services Provider for Credit Cards, Autos and Mortgages

ALEXANDRIA, VA and ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - Pentagon Federal Credit Union (PenFed) announced today that they are now the exclusive, preferred financial services provider for credit cards, vehicle loans, and mortgages for the Navy League of the United States.

"This newly enhanced partnership is exciting on many levels," says Frank Pollack, President, PenFed. "Not only does it allow us to proudly support the cause and efforts of the Navy League's 100 year mission, but it provides us with the opportunity to offer our products and financial products to the outstanding group of individuals who belong to the League. The opportunities this partnership creates will be endless."

The partnership joins two tried-and-true organizations whose goals benefit military service men and women worldwide. According to PenFed and Navy League officials, the goal is to have every Navy League member benefit from PenFed's 75 years of financial lending experience and "best-in-class" products, while cross-promoting the benefits of Navy League membership to eligible PenFed members.

"Our partnership with PenFed is a win-win for both organizations and particularly for our Navy League membership," said Dan Branch, National President of the Navy League. "Our volunteers provide countless hours of their personal time supporting our Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and Merchant Marines and I'm grateful that we can now add access to PenFed as another benefit in return for everything they do."

In April 2011, PenFed added the Navy League to its membership charter, allowing PenFed to open its doors to membership eligibility to the employees and voting members of the Navy League. Through that newly forged partnership, a Navy League employee or member is now eligible to join PenFed and apply for any of PenFed's financial products. In turn, PenFed members are welcome to support the efforts of the League through their membership support.
