About Reliant Federal Credit Union

Reliant Federal Credit Union serves any individual who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Natrona or Converse counties, or any close relative or household member of any existing Reliant FCU member. Reliant Federal Credit Union was established in Casper Wyoming in 1936 during the height of the Great Depression. At that time, few families could obtain affordable credit, and trust in banks was at an all-time low. As a financial institution owned by its members, our goal at that time—and today—was to bring affordable financial services to members, and help them fulfill their dreams.

Today, Reliant has expanded to serve more than 11,000 members in both Natrona and Converse Counties with four branches, and a broad array of electronic services to help you manage your money anytime, from anywhere. For more information, visit
