Our Legacy

In 1948, fifteen civil service personnel gathered in Anchorage’s Alaska Air Depot, pooled their savings, and their conviction in one another, to form 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. In fact, it wasn’t until 1959 that the first employee was hired.

We have always been industry leaders and innovators.

Today, as we celebrate seven decades of service to our communities and members, Alaska USA still builds upon the strength of members—bringing its not-for-profit, financial service cooperative model to families and businesses in Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington, and to those that have traveled across the globe.
