On Dec. 6, Alaska USA marks its 65th anniversary of service to members.
Alaska USA was founded in 1948 as the Alaskan Air Depot Federal Credit Union on Fort Richardson, Alaska, to serve the financial needs of Department of Defense personnel. Those new to Alaska had a need for consumer credit, and local banking institutions were not meeting their needs. The founding members of Alaska USA recognized that a credit union, as a not-for-profit cooperative, could satisfy those credit needs and provide other financial benefits.
Over the past six and a half decades, Alaska USA has responded to members' ever-changing needs with a growing portfolio of financial services, always holding firm to its mission of providing members with service, value, and convenience in the credit union tradition of cooperative ownership and people helping people.
Today, Alaska USA Federal Credit Union serves nearly a half million members worldwide through 67 branch locations and an extensive network of electronic services and call centers. Learn more at alaskausa.org.
