About Wakota Federal Credit Union

Established in 1931, Wakota Federal Credit Union formally known as Armour Credit Union was originally formed to provide “Savings and Thrift” to the Armour Foods employees and their families. Our name was changed in 1997 to Wakota Federal Credit Union as we became a community and federally chartered credit union. The name Wakota is derived from a bridge in South St. Paul that connects Washington and Dakota Counties. Wakota is a word that is easily identifiable to the community of South St Paul where our main office is located. Wakota FCU has grown considerably since its inception and now services all of Dakota County providing all the “Big Bank” services with that small home town feel. While our heart is in South St Paul, our members can transact business at over 5000 credit union shared branches metro, nationally and worldwide. “Kaposia Days is the perfect time to appreciate the community we serve as a not-for-profit financial and share our story. We invite all to participate in some free summer fun with our amazing staff, volunteers and loyal members,” said Mary Matheson, President and CEO of Wakota Federal Credit Union.
