It all began in 1926 with a group of forward-thinking postal employees.
In 1926 a group of forward-thinking postal employees formed a financial cooperative, giving birth to St. Paul Postal Employees Credit Union. As the credit union thrived, membership was opened from only postal employees to include family members, select employee groups, and those who donated to a local Scholarship fund. In 2002, then Postal Credit Union, membership was opened to residents of Washington, Ramsey and Dakota counties and later to Anoka, Chisago and Hennepin counties.
Today, anyone can become a member and do all of their banking at Ideal Credit Union.
