In 1948, fifteen civil service personnel gathered in Anchorage’s Alaska Air Depot, pooled their savings and their conviction in one another, and formed a member-owned credit union.
At the heart of that decision was a simple truth—local financial institutions simply could not or would not support the credit needs of the personnel who had been recently transferred to Alaska. Members began extending credit to one another while volunteering their time to operate the credit union.
Today, Alaska USA still builds upon the strength of members—bringing its not-for-profit, financial service cooperative model to families and businesses across Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington.
Alaska USA Federal Credit Union has more than 675,000 members worldwide. Many enjoy being a member of a credit union so much that they’ve maintained their accounts even after they’ve moved out of an Alaska USA service area.
Employees are members too, so they benefit from the same high standard for service—with the added benefit of working for a company that rewards experience, encourages advancement, and values a healthy work/life balance.
So, what makes credit unions great?
Credit unions like Alaska USA are not-for-profit, member-owned financial services cooperatives providing higher savings, lower loan rates, and fewer fees to their members.
Team Alaska USA volunteers have opportunities to volunteer in the community through financial education, local events and festivals, or conducting a community clean-up.
Alaska USA and its Foundation work with organizations like United Way, BankWorks, and the Phoenix Children's Hospital to help support those in the community who may need a helping hand. Learn more
