In 1958, Chanute Military Credit Union opened its doors on the Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois to serve military personnel and their families. With the government's announcement of plans to close the Chanute Air Force Base, plans were made to expand the credit union in order to continue to serve those faithful military members. As a result, the field of membership was expanded and we changed our name to Credit Union 1 in 1982. In 1999, we combined forces with Paysaver Credit Union, headquartered in Lombard, Illinois. Today we serve nearly 100,000 members throughout the state of Illinois, Nevada and Indiana, as well as worldwide.


A credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned by members like you! Since we're not in business to make a profit, you benefit with lower loan rates and a higher return on savings.
