Mission and Values
Enhancing members' lives through exceptional financial services.
We thrive in an environment of trust, respect, integrity and honesty. We are dedicated to professional and personal growth. Our success flows from focus on our members.
Where You Truly Matter
As a Verity member, your voice is heard. Our management and member-elected board of directors are easily accessible and want to know how the credit union is doing. And since there are no stockholders, Verity directs all "profits" toward providing better products, services and rates for you. That's the credit union difference.
Verity Credit Union will set the standard for quality of service and innovation for financial institutions.
Because of Verity, membership in a credit union will be seen as the first choice for financial service.
Verity will be one of the 10 best places to work. People will seek to work at Verity and staff will be sought after by other companies.
Verity will be one of the top 20 in assets of Washington-based financial institutions.
Verity Credit Union (formerly NW Federal Credit Union) was the first credit union chartered by the State of Washington in 1933, then named Postal Workers Credit Union #8. We later became Federal Employees Credit Union when we expanded, taking in other federal employees. We became NW Federal Employees Federal Credit Union in 1969 when we changed from a state charter to a federal charter. In 1978, we changed our name to NW Federal Credit Union to shorten it. Though our name has changed throughout the years, our spirit remains the same.
Verity has frequently been in the vanguard of new products and services. We offered checking accounts to members as soon as checking accounts became possible for credit unions. We have delivered personal open-end lines of credit for more than 25 years. We have offered a money market type of account and certificates for more than 20 years. Our Home Equity Line of Credit has been a popular and profitable product for more than 15 years.
Verity's current assets exceed $380 million, which classifies us as a mid-size credit union. This means we offer all the product and service offerings of a large institution, while remaining truly personable. We offer six full service offices, as well as full service mortgage and investment services. We are here to serve you in person Monday through Saturday and 24 hours a day through telephone or internet access.
