Our Mission:

Denali Alaskan exists to be a contributing partner in our members' financial success.


Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union is a federally chartered financial institution serving more than 58,000 Alaskans and former Alaskans.  The Credit Union primarily serves the communities of Anchorage, Eagle River, Fairbanks, Juneau and Wasilla; however, our remote access services mean you’re never far away from secure account access anytime, just about anywhere.

The City of Anchorage Employees Federal Credit Union was chartered on December 6, 1948 (charter 5912) with eight members and $40 in assets. The Alaska Railroad Federal Credit Union (Charter 6244), another predecessor to Denali Alaskan, was chartered in July, 1949.


Over the years a number of credit unions were chartered, or merged with existing Alaska credit unions, to create what eventually became Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union in 1997:


  • The Teamsters Federal Credit Union is formed in January, 1964.


  • The Anchorage Natural Gas Employees FCU merges with Alaskan Employees FCU in 1975, and the name of the Credit Union was changed to Alaska Municipal Employees FCU (AMEFCU).


  • The Chugach Electric Association FCU merged with AMEFCU in 1977.


  • The Western Trades FCU merges with AMEFCU in 1982; the subsequent Credit Union changes its name to Alaskan Federal Credit Union in 1984.


  • The Alaska Feminist Credit Union merges its field of membership with Alaskan FCU in 1985.


  • The Alaska Railroad and Teamster Federal Credit Unions merge to form Denali FCU in 1986.


  • Denali and Alaskan Federal Credit Unions merge on January 1, 1997 to form Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union.
