Credit Union Advocacy

As not-for-profit financial cooperatives, credit unions put people before profits. Because you’re a member-owner, it is important to know about policy proposals and actions that could affect you. And because we are all stronger together, we may ask you to lend your voice on important issues that could impact your financial life.

The Iowa Credit Union League will inform you about any legislation impacting you and your credit union. You’ll be able to:

  • Learn when relevant legislation is introduced

  • Make your voice heard on important issues

  • Share your credit union story with your legislators

  • Fight for your and future generations rights to choose a not-for-profit financial partner

Credit Unions are Different From Banks


Credit Unions Pay Taxes

Credit unions are taxed differently because they are structured differently. 

Credit unions pay millions in taxes each year, including state monies and credit tax on legal reserves that banks do not pay.
