Four Principal Values of Financial Success

Safety and security

First and foremost, we provide a safe and secure place for savings. Our strong capital reserve balances, superior examination rating, federal savings insurance, and conservative investment practices provide financial transparency and stability.

High-rate dividends

This is the cornerstone of our success. The $5.6 billion in member savings demonstrates our members’ trust and our competitiveness in the marketplace.

Cost efficiency

We are able to provide higher-than-average dividends and low loan rates through prudent expense control and self-supporting products, services, and activities.

Competitive products, professional service

Great rates and efficient, courteous service. We know that’s what you want and will continue to focus on convenience and competitive pricing.

Alliant History

  1. October 26, 1935

    A small group of United Airlines employees came together to organize a credit union. Originally founded as the United Airlines Employees’ Credit Union, this tight-knit group of employees had a vision of providing a safe place to save and get loans at fair rates. By year end, the credit union had grown to:

  2. Alliant Through the Years

    From this modest start, Alliant expanded its products and services to include those of more contemporary financial institutions. Through the decades, we continued to grow through innovation and responsive, personal member care and service.

    That success is due, in part, to our strong focus on member benefits. Potential offerings are evaluated by a Board of Directors based on overall benefit to the membership and impact to earnings. New products and services must meet strict criteria of quality, competitive pricing, and the ability to enhance credit union earnings and “giveback” to members.
  3. Alliant Today

    Alliant ranks as the one of the largest credit unions in the nation, serving more than 335,000 members worldwide with over $9.3 billion in assets. Our fiscally conservative policy and prudent management has enabled Alliant to disburse over $117 million to members in the form of financial benefits and capital reserves now exceeding $670 million with a "well capitalized" over 11% net worth ratio. This impressive amount of reserves is a key indication of financial strength.
