Our Mission

Our mission statement is our reason for being. It represents the tenet by which we operate the credit union every day for our members. We excel in personal, professional, and friendly service that helps us stand out among all financial institutions in the area.

"The purpose of the MountainCrest Credit Union is to provide sound, quality financial services with exceptional personal service."

All you need to do is come in or call to find out just how good we really are!

Our Success Starts with You

How do we differ from other financial institutions down the street, over the mountains, or across the country? Simple:

We can't be bought; we can't be sold.

The only profits made here are for our members like you, who use us to take care of their financial needs. The credit union is owned by you, the member, and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which you elect each year at the annual membership meeting.

MountainCrest Credit Union is safe and sound, as is your money.

With the headlines regarding recent bank failures, we realize you may have questions about the money you have at MountainCrest Credit Union.

We’re strong and we’re here.

For over 85 years, MountainCrest Credit Union has served our community providing safety, stability, and service by investing in the financial well-being of members like you. We do this while protecting your trust and funds through strong risk management practices.

At MountainCrest Credit Union we live and work in the local community, taking local deposits, and making local loans to our membership. We are soundly managed, well-capitalized and continue to be in a strong financial position to support our membership.

Your money is safe and insured.

As a Credit Union, our cooperative, not-for-profit structure holds us accountable to you, our members. We do not have stockholders. We do not engage in risky practices to meet stockholders’ profit demands. We manage your money to the highest standards and best practices dictated by Federal regulatory agencies.

MountainCrest Credit Union offers a safe place for our members to save money. These deposits are federally protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) and insured up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor.

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is an independent agency that administers the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). Like the FDIC which insures bank deposits, the NCUSIF is a federal insurance fund backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Credit Union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union.
The NCUSIF insures member savings in federally insured credit unions, which account for about 98 percent of all credit unions in the United States. Deposits at all federal credit unions and most state-chartered credit unions are covered by NCUSIF protection.
