About Vantage West

Vantage West Credit Union offers personal and business loans and accounts, and with more than $1.7 billion in assets, we are the largest credit union in southern Arizona.

We’re overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors that’s elected by the membership. The Board sets policies and maintains the best interests of its member/owners. Members (18 years of age and older) have the right to vote in the annual election — and on other propositions requiring a member vote.

Member deposits are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), a federal fund backed by the full faith and credit of the US government, and operated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). We’re regulated by the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions (ADFI) with oversight by NCUA for purposes of ensuring the safety and soundness of the NCUSIF.

Why is it important to support local banks and businesses?

Our History

In 1955, we were federally chartered as “DMAFB Federal Credit Union,” to serve personnel working at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (DMAFB).

Our field of membership has been expanded many times. In 2006, the Board sought regulatory approval and put forth a special proposal to the membership. The proposal passed, and the credit union converted from a federal to a state charter. The Board and management team determined the credit union needed a new name to better represent the new membership guidelines. The name, Vantage West Credit Union, was announced publicly in August ’06.

In 2010 and again in 2014, Vantage West expanded through merger. We now proudly serve the members of the former First Edition Community Credit Union and the former Tombstone Federal Credit Union.

Today, we continue to move forward — building on the tradition of serving DMAFB, in addition to the growing communities surrounding the base. Vantage West serves more than 130,000 members, and we strive to treat our members/owners with the highest level of service. Learn more about how to / who can become a member.
