Empeople Credit Union comes from a long history of helping members achieve their financial goals. Our name has changed, but our mission, vision, and values remain the same. When Deere Employees Credit Union and Infinity Credit Union joined together, they created an even stronger member-focused organization that strives for continuous improvement.

A Mission of Financial Empowerment

Empeople Credit Union is on a mission to create a path to financial freedom for all Empeople members. We value every member of our community and support them as they work toward their lifelong goals. Empowering members with thoughtful guidance, one-on-one financial support, and expertise helps position Empeople as a trusted financial partner.

We strive to show up every day to inspire each member as they pursue their personal aspirations. We’re built to serve our members and we care about people above all else. When we empower people to reach their financial goals, our members and our organization thrive.

Empeople Credit Union

A Vision for Growth

We have a vision for Empeople Credit Union that includes building a community of trust, support, and service. We are invested in the financial goals and aspirations of our members and serve as financial partners to guide them along their  journeys.

As an Empeople member, you are a part-owner of our credit union and because of that, our growth is your growth. We hope to continue to grow with our members year after year to become an even better financial institution and supportive financial partner.
