About Us

We've got you covered!

FIRST PACE Credit Union Mission: We strive to enhance our member owner's lives through shared values, offering financial solutions and building our future together.

Unlike a bank, we are a not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution. That means, instead of profits going to stockholders, we return our earnings to our members in the form of better rates with fewer and lower fees. And each member account is insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration.

Eligibility? We want you with us! If you are a USW Union member living or working in Minnesota or Wisconsin, you can become a member of FIRST PACE Credit Union. Once you join, any of your relatives are all eligible for membership...for life. All you need to join is complete a membership application and make a minimum $10 deposit into a share savings account.

FIRST PACE Credit Union was organized in 1963 to serve members of the O.C.A.W. Union Locals 6-409, 6-662, 6-715, International Union District #6 and employees of the credit union. The first office opened on September 20, 1963, was on University Avenue in St. Paul and open for 1 hour per week. We've come a long way since then and are still here to help you with your financial goals and options.

We are chartered by the State of Minnesota and regulated by the Minnesota Department of Commerce. The Credit Union receives leadership from five Board of Directors and operational guidance by the Supervisory Committee Members. These are volunteer positions elected at the annual meeting.
