Our History

In 1928, nine Postal workers with $5 each applied for a charter to organize what became known as Portland Postal Employees Credit Union. Today, with assets of nearly $230 million and over 18,000 members, the Credit Union is now called NW Priority Credit Union to better reflect their loyal and growing membership.

NW Priority Credit Union continues to be strongly committed to the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People". With seven branches located in Downtown Portland, SE Portland, Portland Air Base, Rivergate Industrial, Milwaukie, Beaverton and Vancouver, Washington. We consistently strive to provide competitive rates, outstanding products and services that are safe and secure. We also offer exceptional programs for our youngest and young adult members.

Good things in life happen at NW Priority Credit Union. Start building your financial future with people you can believe in.

Advantages of Credit Unions

Credit unions are financial cooperatives owned and operated by their member/owners.
As a credit union member, you're also the owner! There are no outside stockholders. Credit unions exist to provide the best service possible to their members - not to churn profit for stockholders by charging high fees. The only stockholders at a credit union are the members themselves!


Better Rates & Lower Fees
Credit unions return all profits back to the member (after reserves and expenses) in the form of better rates, better service and lower fees. Other financial institutions do not operate this way!


Volunteer Board of Directors
Credit unions are governed through an unpaid, volunteer Board of Directors. These volunteers are members of the credit union and are democratically elected by the credit union membership to represent you, the credit union member.

Better Service
As a member of a credit union, you're also the owner - and we treat you that way. There are no customers at a credit union, just member/owners! Credit unions are not-for-profit. Credit unions return profits to members, not stockholders. We pass the savings back to the membership in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates and improved service.
