Idaho Central Credit Union was organized as a state-chartered credit union on June 28, 1940, in Boise, Idaho, to serve the financial needs of the officers of other credit unions operating in the State of Idaho. At that time, officers could not belong to the credit union where they worked. On January 31, 1941, the Credit Union reported $298.93 in assets at year end and had 22 members.
In 1953, Idaho Central changed its field of membership to include all members of other Idaho credit unions. By 1977, the Credit Union reached 10,000 in active members and had branches in Pocatello and Boise, Idaho. During that same year, the field of membership was modified again to include retail employees in Ada, Bannock, Bingham, and Power Counties.
Idaho Central reached $100 million in assets in 1997, and $500 million nine years later in 2006. By 2012, the Credit Union reached over $1 billion in asset size. Idaho Central serves the needs of over 143,000 members including employees, students, retirees, and family members of eligible members of a large variety of business entities within most Idaho counties.
Headquartered in Chubbuck, Idaho, Idaho Central is the largest credit union in Idaho and offers 22 full-service locations throughout the Treasure Valley, Magic Valley, and Eastern Idaho. We continue to look for expansion opportunities in order to meet the needs of our members.
