Collins CCU was founded in 1940 by ten Collins Radio employees who recognized the need for an alternative financial institution. In May 2014, Federal Employees Credit Union (Des Moines) voted to merge with Collins CCU, and in July 2014, the merger was complete. As a result of that merger, Collins CCU has become Iowa’s fourth largest credit union, with more than 70,600 members and assets in excess of $1 billion.
