Our History: 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. Decade after decade, Idahy’s growth was steady and durable, beginning with a few key employer groups and gradually expanding through the community based on a sterling reputation and commitment to the member experience.
It was in the late 2000s that this stable and pragmatic business model earned recognition from the Weiss Ratings – the nation’s foremost rating agency for financial institutions. As the highest-rated credit union 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 FCU 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 23,000 members from Boise, Idaho to La Grande, Oregon, with total assets nearing $260 million.
