Bell Federal Credit Union was chartered as Sioux Falls Bell Federal Credit Union in October, 1939 by the employees of Northwestern Bell Telephone Company and their families. In the ensuing years, many more groups saw the financial advantage of a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative and our Select Employee Groups grew to over 90. In 2009, Sioux Falls Bell Federal Credit Union changed it’s name to Bell Federal Credit Union and expanded our membership opportunity to individuals who live, work, worship or attend school in Minnehaha or Lincoln Counties.
Midwest Partners Federal Credit Union was chartered September 19th, 1940 by Metz Baking Company employees. In 1987, they merged operations with McKennan Hospital Employee Credit Union and formed Metz/McKennan Federal Credit Union. In May, 2001 the name was changed to Midwest Partners Federal Credit Union. The name changed because of our expanding field of membership and the name changes of our primary sponsor groups.
