Who We Are
Beginning in the 1940s, businesses across the country started forming credit unions as an employee benefit. Metro Credit Union originated more than 70 years ago by employees working on the UNMC Campus. Over the years, other businesses joined with Metro to offer the Credit Union’s products and services as a benefit to their employees, too. Metro has grown to more than $500 million in Assets, and today serves more than 43,000 members living and working in five Nebraska and three Iowa counties.
Metro has never lost touch with our roots. We were formed in 1951 for the benefit of people who bank with us, and that purpose remains central to our decision-making today. For that reason, Metro Credit Union has earned a reputation for exceptional service and great value in banking, consistently receiving high marks for trust, integrity, low loan rates, and better overall service. In fact, Forbes Magazine ranked Metro Credit Union as Best-In-State in 2022 after surveying consumers on overall satisfaction, likelihood to recommend to family and friends, trust, financial advice, and services.
At Metro we do business differently - unlike other financial institutions we don't have outside investors to serve. Our members are our owners, so our primary duty is to act in your best interest. Metro Credit Union's commitment to conservative operations and providing value to members has led to continued growth year after year.
