Iowa Forces Credit Union Name Change

Mar 11, 2019

An Iowa credit union is changing its name after the state government barred credit unions from using public university names in their titles. According to CUToday, the $5.3-billion University of Iowa Community Credit Union said it plans to change its name to GreenState Credit Union. The university board of regents expressed specific concerns about the misconception that the credit union is affiliated with the university.

ICBA’s recently released Community Focus 2020 advocacy platform continues ICBA’s calls for policymakers to re-examine the credit union tax subsidy.
