Northwoods Community Credit Union began as the Flambeau Paper Employees’ Credit Union in 1953. The Flambeau Paper Employees Credit Union, much like other credit unions all over the world, began with a simple idea: That people could achieve a better standard of living for themselves and others by combining their savings and making loans to neighbors and coworkers. People began pooling their money together because they had nowhere else to turn. They were able to work together and leverage money from each other in a way that helped each person achieve financial stability in difficult economic times.
A lot has changed since 1953, but one thing remains: Northwoods Community Credit Union continues to grow as a member-owned, locally controlled financial cooperative, dedicated to providing financial security and outstanding service. We offer a complete range of services—from savings and checking accounts, to a wide variety of lending products to serve both your personal and business needs.
Today, NCCU’s field of membership consists of the following 14 counties: Ashland, Bayfield, Douglas, Forest, Iron, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, Vilas, and Washburn.
