Who We Are
We’re Members – Just Like You
With locations in Ames, Denison, Des Moines, Indianola and West Des Moines with more locations on the way, Greater Iowa Credit Union is a growing, member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative. Our story begins in June of 1932 with just nine people and winds its way from humble beginnings working out of rented spaces to now serving nearly 30,000 members throughout a 33-county area in central and western Iowa.
The Iowa Credit Union Division oversees Greater Iowa on the state level, while the National Credit Union Administration provides federal oversight. All Greater Iowa deposits are insured up to $500,000, $250,000 by NCUA and an additional $250,000 insured by Greater Iowa through Excess Share Insurance Corporation.
The majority of financial services and products needed by businesses and people to succeed in their daily lives are offered by Greater Iowa Credit Union. And while technology will continue to change products, services and how we offer them to best meet our members’ needs, our philosophy has endured and will never change: "Not for profit, not for charity, but for service – people helping people."
