What is a credit union?
Alliant Credit Union (ACU) is a full-service cooperative financial institution that is owned by our members. Credit Unions are not-for-profit, so unlike banks, we're here for people, not profits. We return any extra earnings to members in the form of benefits like lower fees and better interest rates.
Offering Alliant Credit Union membership helps your company by:
- Enhancing your benefits package at no expense to your company.
- Increase in employee productivity and engagement, lower absenteeism, reduced turnover and greater profitability.1
- Providing financial education.
We've been serving members since 1933
Alliant Credit Union was founded in 1933 to serve the local utility company in Dubuque, Iowa. The Credit Union was started by a group of local employees that wanted to see their co-workers succeed during the Great Depression. During this time, operations were run out of the treasurer's desk drawer before and after work, and also during lunches (for cash only deposits and withdrawals!).
Since then, we've grown. We've grown into five offices, over 25 full-time employees and over 9,000 members.
Once a member, always a member
This means, that if an employee should leave or retire from your company, they will still maintain all the privileges associated with Alliant Credit Union membership – even if they move to another area or state.
Credit Union membership is worth hundreds.
In a recent benefit audit completed by Credit Union National Association (CUNA), it estimated:
- Alliant Credit Union provided $889,449 in direct financial benefits to its members during the most recent twelve month period.
- Loyal Alliant Credit Union members received $211 per household in direct financial benefits during a twelve month period.
Adding Alliant Credit Union to your benefit list is simple.
Enrolling your company couldn't be easier. We provide marketing materials and handle the enrollment process. An Alliant Credit Union representative will visit your company once, twice or four times a year and can set up in any room at your company. Employees can speak to an Alliant Credit Union representative on their break or lunch hour, which won't take away from their work schedule.
