History

The History of an Idaho Credit Union

On March 2, 1954, the Civilian Employees Federal Credit Union (Federal charter) was given official notice of acceptance and became Chapter No. 9247.

In the years following our name changed to reflect the majority of the credit union's members, and until 1959 the "Mountain Home Air Force Base Federal Credit Union" Board members conducted credit union business during their regular hours of duty.

Only five years after our founding, at a January 23, 1959 annual meeting, it was decided that the credit union would add its first permanent office. The office, located on the Mountain Home Air Force Base, was a small trailer that was open five days a week between the hours of eleven and two. 

Although we've since changed our name and our branches have grown in both size and number, Pioneer Federal Credit Union is still known for its commitment to the deep-rooted credit union philosophy of "People Helping People." Our commitment to improving the quality of life for our members and the people in our community is a tradition that dates back nearly sixty years.

We provide innovative, substantive, and low cost financial solutions, delivering honest financial rewards for our members through a comprehensive line of products and services to complement any lifestyle and budget. We do this by simply offering low fees and great rates when you borrow and/or save.

Pioneer Federal is not here for profit but for quality service, as was intended at its founding in 1954.
