About Icon Credit Union
Icon Credit Union began in 1952 as Idahy Federal Credit Union, when seven employees of the Idaho Department of Highways started with $35 and the idea of a credit union that reflected their values of integrity, service and community. Soon after Idahy opened its doors, it became apparent to its founders that there was a profound need in the community for a financial institution that put its members’ needs first. Icon continues to use its stable and pragmatic business model to earn recognition from the Weiss Ratings – the nation’s foremost rating agency for financial institutions. As one of the highest-rated credit unions in the State of Idaho, Idahy’s “A” rating places it in an elite group of financial institutions at the top five percent of the rating scale nationwide. In 2010, Idahy Federal Credit Union changed its name to Icon Credit Union to better reflect its growing, diverse membership and it is with a continued dedication to stability and core values that Icon has now grown to serve more than 22,000 members from Boise, Idaho, to La Grande, Oregon, with total assets nearing $230 million.
