On October 1967, eight employees of the International Paper Company applied for a state charter to establish a credit union to serve the employees of the International Paper Company and their immediate family members living under the same roof, organizations made of the same, and employees of this credit union, with a potential employee membership of 375 which is the number of employees within the field of membership.. Thus was born I.P. Employees Credit Union which was changed to Vickswood Credit Union in 1968. Today, we boast assets of over $11 million and are 1,600 + members strong.
Over the years, we have had two credit unions merge with Vickswood Credit Union (Anderson- Tully Lumber Company Employees Federal Credit Union in 2005 and Vicksburg Warren School Employee Federal Credit Union in 2007).
In 2014 we expanded our field of membership to also include persons who live in, work in, attend school in, or worship in Warren County, MS and Yazoo County, MS., and businesses and other legal entitles within the boundaries.
