We are an UNbank

Community Choice Credit Union is not a bank. To us, "bank" is a four-letter word.

At Community Choice, we UNbank. That means doing things the big banks won’t. We’re a member-owned cooperative that was established and continues to operate on the principal of members helping members. We’re not owned by a holding company or some crazy, faceless conglomerate. We’re owned by over 40,000 Iowans that are just like you.

Community Choice is not-for-profit. That means after meeting essential reserve requirements and paying operational expenses, profits are returned to our members in the form of:

  • Higher savings dividends
  • Lower loan rates
  • Reduced rates for member services
  • And more...

It’s time to stop banking with traditional financial institutions that put profits ahead of people. It’s time to start UNbanking with a full-service credit union that can help you live your best life!

UNbank With Us!
