No matter what our name becomes, we remain committed to providing extraordinary service to you and helping all of our members meet their financial goals for generations to come. For more information and answers to your questions, visit our Name Change FAQ page. You can also submit your suggestions for our new name using the Feedback icon on our homepage.

If traveling out of state with your UICCU debit or credit card*, please notify us at 800-397-3790 or any office location. States or countries with high cases of card fraud may be blocked from usage for your protection. If you are planning a trip, notifying us allows us to unblock the card so that it works for the period you are visiting. For added peace of mind, enroll your credit and debit card for our free Fraud Prevention Text Alerts. Thank you for helping us significantly decrease fraud on UICCU accounts.
*PIN-based debit transactions should still work even if notification to UICCU was not made.
Have you been asked to be a mystery shopper and received a check to deposit as part of the job? Please use caution! This is a very common scam and can leave you owing thousands of dollars. Talk to UICCU staff regarding any mystery shopper deposit items so that we can help protect your account.
Call Wait Times.
UICCU has seen explosive growth this year and it has resulted in longer wait times on the phone. We are in the process of adding staff to our Call Center in order to reduce the wait and serve you faster. Of course, you can also bypass the call center by visiting our direct dial page as well. Thank you for your patience.
Congratulations and thank you!
The Iowa Legislature adjourned on Saturday, May 5th without any changes to credit union taxation. THANK YOU for your grassroots advocacy. Credit Union members and non-members sent a strong message that financial cooperatives provide a valuable choice in the marketplace.
In the final hours of the session language was added to prohibit the use of a public university’s name in the name of any Iowa Credit Union, which targets UICCU. This was not part of the tax bill and therefore not part of the public discussion. We will work our way through this new legislation and keep the membership informed as we proceed.
Online Banking Tip – Get access codes via text message.
Do you get secure access codes via a phone call but want to get a text message instead? Follow these easy steps and you can chose to get codes via text the next time you log in from a new device.
Are you paying fees for your checking account?
Some banks are moving their customers to checking accounts that require minimum balances and activity to waive fees. UICCU's Free Checking Account is free without any hoop jumping. No minimum balance is required.
