About the Business

Premier Credit Union has deep roots, beginning on September 11, 1933 as Bankers Life Employees Credit Union. The purpose was to promote savings and offer affordable loans to its members - those employed by Bankers Life Company and their families.

In 1986, when Bankers Life Company changed its name to Principal Financial Group, the credit union followed suit and changed its own name to Principal Financial Group Employees Credit Union. In 2001, the leadership of the credit union decided to change the name to Premier Credit Union to better reflect the membership base, which now includes individuals who have never worked for Principal Financial Group, as well as family members of current members.

The mission of the credit union is “Building Relationships - One Member at a Time”, and this was reinforced by the new name.

On April 4, 2004, the credit union moved to its current main office in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. The location was chosen because it was close to the corporate offices of Principal Financial Group, as well as the offices of other downtown employers such as The Des Moines Register and KCCI-Channel 8.

In addition, we have a growing base of family members that never worked at Principal Financial Group. The new name, Pre
