Heartland Credit Union has received approval from the Minnesota Commerce Department to add four additional Minnesota counties to its field of membership. Heartland can now offer credit union membership to businesses and individuals who live, work, volunteer, worship, or attend school in Washington, Ramsey, Hennepin and Carver Counties.

Previously, Heartland’s field of membership included Dakota, Scott, Rice and Le Sueur counties in addition to CHS, Inc., Land O’Lakes, Chart, Genex Cooperative, Scott Equipment, and others.
“We are pleased to announce our request to expand our field of membership has been approved,” Heartland president and CEO Kathy Harrington said in a press release. “This expansion allows us to increase our geographic and economic diversity, providing Heartland with added stability during economic downturns. In addition, this growth opportunity allows us to better serve our current members with expanded products, services and technology. With the commitment of our staff and board to provide personalized, fair and cost-effective financial services, we are excited for this new chapter in Heartland’s history.”
