About ZIA CU

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.

In 1975, management at Zia CU decided to expand its field of membership by not just serving a special interest group but serving the entire community. The reason for this change was to enable Zia CU to grow and offer better services to the current members, while including new members.

In 1995, management at Zia CU expanded its field of membership by not just serving people living, working, or worshiping in Los Alamos County, but also serving people living, working, or worshiping in Rio Arriba County. In 2008, field of membership was expanded to the greater Pojoaque Valley, and now to Santa Fe and Taos counties.
