True North Federal Credit Union

Membership & Mission

Who We Are

Chartered in 1948, True North Federal Credit Union was the first non-profit full-service cooperative financial institution owned and directed by its members in Alaska. We are chartered, regulated and insured by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the federal government.

In Alaska, business is conducted from thousands of miles apart. We work closely with our branches and members to close this distance. With branch locations in Juneau, Anchorage, and Fairbanks, plus a wide variety of technological services, access to your accounts is easy whether you live in the big city or in one of our remote communities.

From basic financial needs like savings and checking services, to loans, investments and electronic products, we are here to help you find the right product that meets your needs at competitive rates, and often fee-free!
