About Zia Credit Union:
In 1955, a group of approximately 200 individuals from Zia Company, support contractors for the Los Alamos National Laboratory, organized and founded Zia Credit Union as a special interest group, a common practice for that time in the credit union movement. The contractors felt they needed their own financial institution. Management of the newly-founded Zia Credit Union chose to become a state-charted credit union.
