Iowa Bankers Trying to Raise Credit Union Taxes - Your Help Needed

Credit unions provide a not-for-profit, cooperatively-owned choice in the financial marketplace. For decades, the credit union business model has saved Iowans money and provided access to credit that many could not get from a bank. With tax reform being discussed at the state level, bank lobbyists are using it as an opportunity to try and convince legislators to raise taxes on credit unions, effectively taxing their competition out of the market.

As a member-owner of your credit union - your voice matters – as any tax increase is ultimately a tax on you, our owners! Please contact your state legislator today and ask them to oppose bank efforts to raise credit union taxes, so Iowans like you continue to have the ability to choose a not-for-profit financial partner. We have made it easy to send your legislator an email.  Please click here to view, edit and send an electronic message.

REMINDER: Check Account Transaction History

Just a friendly reminder to periodically check your account transaction history and report any unauthorized transactions to us immediately. With the record setting number of merchant breaches recently, fraud is at an all-time high and fraudsters are gearing up for the increased debit card use by consumers during the holiday season. We want you to be protected and here are steps you can take to help:

1) Always secure your PIN. If you have to write it down, keep it stored in a secure location that is separate from your debit card.
