Availability

Headquartered in Hiawatha, Iowa, First Federal Credit Union’s field of membership (FOM) is residency based. Since I last wrote about First Federal in October, a merger with Eaton Employees Credit Union has added three Iowa counties to the FOM. First Federal now offers membership to individuals who live, work, or worship in the counties of Buena Vista, Clay, Dickinson, and Linn.

While First Federal CU does have an online banking platform for account management, bill payments, and loan applications, joining First Federal and/or opening a CD Special requires an in-person visit to any of four Iowa branches located Cedar Rapids (2), Hiawatha, and Spencer.
