Your Money, Your Choices

Thank you for considering Canyon State Credit Union. You have come to the right page to learn about member benefits, how to join, and eligibility criteria.

The Credit Union Difference

As a credit union, we are a not-for-profit financial cooperative, which means we operate to serve our member-owners. This makes us quite different from other financial institutions. Our non-profit status means that we return net earnings to our members in the form of lower interest rates on loans, higher dividends on savings, and lower fees.

Our goal is to build lifetime relationships by continually expanding products and services while emphasizing financial security, quality, and convenience in an environment that values and respects members, employees, and business partners.

Who Are the Employees of Canyon State Credit Union?

Considering our long-standing dedication to personal service and genuine concern for our members, it wasn’t surprising that when asked, employees and members alike responded with glowing attributes of the credit union. We were pleased that these adjectives were used to describe the hard-working employees of Canyon State:

  • Initiative-taking
  • Honest
  • Friendly
  • Caring
  • Attentive
  • Helpful
  • Genuine

Above all, our members value Canyon State’s commitment to go the extra mile to put each member in a better financial state regardless of his or her current situation. We want to be with our members over the long haul, for all their financial “firsts” and “finals,” and as a resource on which they can always rely. We commit ourselves to helping them; we want to know our members personally and treat them as individuals. We will continue to stand out from our competition by the quality of service and genuine care for which we are known.

*Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
