We’ve updated our website

You should expect the same level of service online that you receive in person or over the phone—so we launched a sleeker, more intuitive alaskausa.org. The website is easier than ever to navigate and contains useful tools and information about products, services, saving strategies, and more. Take a look around the new site and let us know what you think.

What if you could keep your down payment?

Put your good credit to work with a Zero-Down Portfolio ARM Loan—offering the security of a low, fixed rate for the first five or seven years with a simple 2/5/5 adjustable rate once the initial fixed-rate period ends. You could put your down payment funds into upgrades for your home or simply put it away for a rainy day. Want to find out if this is the right loan for you?

Operation Homefront

Alaska USA has been focused on supporting service members, veterans, and their families since the credit union formed in 1948. That’s why Operation Homefront and the programs they offer in Alaska, Arizona, California, and Washington have been chosen as one of our primary non-profit partnerships.

We recently helped organize volunteers for Operation Homefront’s Back-to-School Brigade®, their nationwide school supply collection and distribution campaign. More than 400,000 backpacks were distributed to the children of military families, saving them nearly $50 million in school expenses.
