RGCU was originally chartered as the Albuquerque City Employees Credit Union in January 1953. With the addition of Bernalillo County employees into our field of membership, a new name was needed to better represent our members. In November 1988, the Board of Directors voted to rename the credit union Rio Grande Credit Union. Several local credit unions have merged into our family including San Ignacio Credit Union in 1991, Albuquerque VA Federal Credit Union in 2005 and New Mexico Central Credit Union in 2012.
