In 1963 Independence Federal Credit Union was chartered by the Independence Postal Workers to serve any Federal employee that worked in Independence. Over the years we have extended the membership to include the following: Civilian employees and military personnel who work at or are attached to the Lake City Ammunition plant, members of Sugar Creek Memorial VFW Post #3976, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Fraas-Fain Post 1000, members of the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 1000, employees of Truman Library, military personnel of the U.S. government stationed at recruiting offices in Independence, Missouri, and employees of the Philatelic Center, and members of the immediate families, and organizations of such persons.
Independence Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned, controlled, and operated for the benefits of its members. Credit union members join together to build long-term financial stability and provide high quality, low-cost financial services.
Every dollar you invest in Independence Federal Credit Union (up to $250,000) is fully insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. You can rest assured that there is no safer place for your hard-earned funds than a federally insured credit union.
