iQ started in 1940 with a schoolteacher’s shoebox and a handwritten ledger. Now we provide simple, honest financial solutions for more than 90,000 members at 16 branches throughout southwest Washington and Portland.
We live the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” together with member education, community investment, financial health, and employee development as foundational components of our culture.
Living in the Pacific Northwest has its unique advantages. A mecca for coffee lovers and adventure enthusiasts alike, this one-of-a-kind environment has become famously trademarked over the years for one extremely fashionable reason: Buffalo Plaid. The same could be said of iQ Credit Union, a special alternative to banking in which the signature red and black colors never run dry.
iQ has been providing personalized financial solutions for people here in the Pacific Northwest since 1940. That’s a long time. What’s the secret behind longevity? It’s simple: a blend of services that reach well beyond the basics of everyday finances. To build lifelong relationships with members, it’s important to get to know their needs and personalities.
Giving back to the people and communities in the PNW is also a valuable component to success and something we're proud to be known for.
Members have access to checking, online banking, and bill pay service—via computer or mobile app. Members are also part of a nationwide network of fee-less ATMs, not to mention a full range of additional financial services designed to save money, time, and energy.
iQ is inspired by the Pacific Northwest, where helping people is in our nature. We’re passionate and responsible to those around us - striving to create a joyful and inclusive environment in our unique communities. We do this by developing holistic relationships with our employees, members, and neighbors through our culture of active volunteerism, engagement and donations. Our commitment extends to our roots in education, by providing accessible financial resources to people of all ages.
Our strength comes from our relationships—with each other, with our members, and with our communities. We work together to achieve greatness.
We’re easy to work with—we go out of our way to ensure every interaction with us is genuine, welcoming, and kind.
Everything we do is with unwavering enthusiasm—for our work, for our team, for the PNW community and the people who call it home. It’s how we seek the uniQue.
We deliver extraordinary results and experiences that delight and surprise. We’re forward-thinking and incredibly motivated.
