Come celebrate your co-ownership of Credit Union 1 with free food and drinks at our branch! You'll get a chance to chat with our President/CEO James Wileman (he's the greatest) - and because we #CU1LUV you, we'll also be hosting a silent auction during the evening to support a social cause in your community! Come join the fun on the following days:
All branches and our Member Service Center will be closed:
Credit Union 1 is excited to share a special new look for our debit and credit cards! These cards each now sport a #CU1LUV emblem, to honor our commitment to lead change, uplift others and value people all across Alaska. Now, when you open a new spending or credit card account with us (or your existing card expires), you’ll receive this neat new design to swipe and enjoy.
Did you know that as a CU1 member, you earn One for All Rewards points each time you pay with your debit or credit card?
Each year, Credit Union 1 is proud to award valuable scholarships to our fellow Alaskans in pursuit of higher education. These scholarships celebrate our roots as an Anchorage teachers’ credit union and our passion for lifelong learning! 2018 marks our 31st year of awarding scholarship funds. Check out the winners of this year’s Bill Countryman Scholarship!
In total, we’re excited to give $25,000 in scholarship funds to the above CU1 members! We’d also like to extend special thanks to each of the 35+ applicants who applied for our 2018 Bill Countryman Scholarship. In reviewing each and every application, we were proud to see how you are expanding your education to help make Alaska an even better place to live.

At Credit Union 1, we’re proud to support Alaskan businesses! If you’re dreaming of small business ownership, we’d like to share a recent change to our documentation requirements. This federally required change, which took effect on May 11, 2018, will aid the government in fighting fraud and other financially-related crimes.
Already one of our valued CU1 business owners? At this time, we likely won’t need to collect this information if your business account was established with us prior to 2018. However, we may be required to collect certain info from you on a case-by-case basis in accordance with this new federal regulation. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
If you’ve ever felt like banks have their values backwards or like your credit union should stay local and loyal, then rest assured that you’re on the right path with Credit Union 1. We live each and every day with the mission to lead change, uplift others and value people – and we achieve this goal in a wide variety of ways.
Share the love with us and receive a #CU1LUV PopSocket! Visit cu1.org/LuvStory for details.
CU1 is excited to announce the launch of our new #CU1LUV Community Fund! This special fund serves as a way for Alaskans whose food, shelter or health is at risk to receive direct assistance from our credit union through a nonprofit organization.
The #CU1LUV Community Fund is supported by funds that Credit Union 1 donates on behalf of members who finance loans with us. For every consumer loan, we’ll donate $1 to this fund. For every real estate loan, we’ll donate $10. Now, when you finance a CU1 loan toward your own life goals – or refinance an existing loan to Credit Union 1 – you’re making a much larger impact on the lives of those around you. That’s #CU1LUV at work, and we’re grateful for your support!
