1st MidAmerica Credit Union

Private Banking - Financial Services 4 Active Jobs

Credit Union members are entitled to certain privileges not offered by other financial institutions. At 1st MidAmerica you will receive the friendly service of a small town institution with the financial strength and services of a large financial institution. We believe in the philosophy of people helping people and offer our members higher interest on dividends and lower interest rates for borrowing money. Our goal is to be the primary financial institution for all our members and their families.

As an 1st MidAmerica member, you are a shareholder of the credit union and have a voice in how the credit union is governed. This primary advantage to credit union membership is just the beginning. In addition, 1st MidAmerica offers a host of services to help you simplify the management of your finances.


1st MidAmerica believes that our employees are the key to what makes a great company and it is important to us that we recognize their achievements and compensate them with a competitive salary and benefits package.

Health Insurance

Virtually every American will suffer injury or illness during their life and, while technology has enabled us to live longer, healthier lives, this health care excellence comes at a high price. 1st MidAmerica makes this protection affordable for our employees by picking up the majority of the cost for health insurance for them and their families. Employees have the choice of either an HMO or a Point of Service Plan so they get to decide if they want to receive their medical care from a network provider or from a doctor outside the network.

Dental Insurance

1st MidAmerica offers a comprehensive package of dental benefits through Delta Dental's Premiere Dental Plan. With Premiere, you are offered the country's largest network of dentists but you also have the freedom to choose any dentist you want. The majority of the cost for this plan is picked up the Credit Union.

Life Insurance

1st MidAmerica provides basic life insurance equal to one times an employee's annual base salary. Additional protection for yourself, your spouse or your dependent children can be purchased through our group plan. Additionally, accidental death and dismemberment coverage is provided, at no cost, at a benefit of one times annual salary.

Short Term and Long Term Disability

In the event that an employee must be absent from work for five consecutive days due to a serious illness or injury, he/she may be eligible for benefits under our Short Term Disability plan. Short Term Disability provides employees with continuing income equivalent to 100% of their base pay up to a maximum of 90 days. After 90 days, an employee can apply for Long Term Disability which would enable them to receive 70% of their base pay providing that they qualify for such benefits. Again, this coverage is provided at no cost to the employee.

401(k) Plan

1st MidAmerica offers a 401(k) plan to make saving for retirement easier. Money our employees invest in the plan is deducted from their paycheck before taxes are withheld; thereby, lowering their taxable income. To help their retirement income grow faster, the Credit Union contributes an additional 10% to an employee's plan.

Paid Time Off

With one year of employment, employees of 1st MidAmerica are eligible for 10 vacation days, 5 personal days and 11 paid holidays. Additionally, they are eligible to receive additional paid time off for the following circumstances: jury duty, court appearance, bereavement leave for an immediate family member, and military leave of less than two weeks.

Professional Development

Career opportunities exist at 1st MidAmerica in positions that provide challenge, responsibility and opportunity for advancement. We offer our employees with opportunities to learn and develop through on-the-job training, outside seminars and classes and a generous tuition reimbursement program.
