Join us in asking Iowa lawmakers to protect your right to choose a credit union.
After six consecutive years of record profits, Iowa banks are lobbying lawmakers now more than ever to raise taxes on credit unions and eliminate Iowans' access to not-for-profit, cooperatively owned financial services.

Please join us in sharing the importance of the credit union difference with our elected officials, including that:
Banks try to paint a picture of credit union competition hurting their business – but the numbers don’t back that up. All Iowans win and keep more of their own money when credit unions are part of the financial landscape.

As a credit union, we’re organized differently than other financials. Veridian is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by our members. That means all net earnings are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and low-to-no fees. Veridian is also governed by a volunteer board of directors who are elected by our members. Each member has one vote in the election for our board regardless of how much money that individual has on deposit.
