71 Years Serving State Employees

Capitol View Credit Union was originally organized by a group of Employment Services employees in 1944. Since then it has been our mission to offer straight-forward, reliable banking to state employees and their families nearly exclusively.
Unlike other credit unions, we stand by our commitment to serve state employees in an effort to maintain our small-town, honest relationships with our members. By limiting our membership, we are able to offer customer service that cannot be matched. Further, we consistently offer some of the most competitive rates around.
With Capitol View Credit Union you get all of the great, big-city services like Home Banking; Online Bill Pay; full service Personal, Vehicle, and Home Loans; and a range of Investment Opportunities with the honesty and reliability that comes along with small-town, Iowan relationships.

The Benefits of Capitol View

So why should you bank with us? To start, our customer service is the best around. We have long standing relationships with many state employees and handle multiple state employee organization’s accounts. We also have the experience to help with all of your needs.
Capitol View is also the most convenient place to bank as a state employee. Located inside the Iowa Workforce Development Building, we are just a short walk from any state office building on the complex. We also operate on the same schedule as state offices so you can always swing by our office over lunch or on a break.
Finally, we  offer a long list of reliable, easy-to-use services that are geared towards helping you better manage your money and make to most of it. Visit us to learn more!
