After a 5% tax was proposed on the three largest credit unions in Utah, Mountain America converted from a state chartered to a federally chartered credit union in 2003, becoming Mountain America Federal Credit Union.[1] Mountain America's membership is open to residents of Salt Lake, Duchesne, Wasatch, and Uintah counties and their families as well as members of affiliated associations and employees of select employee groups. Some of their Select Employer Group (SEG)[2] affiliations include some of the world's largest companies and associations, including Marriott International, the National Consumer Council, and Walmart.

Mountain America donated $25,000 through the World Council of Credit Unions to fund relief efforts in Peru after the 2007 earthquake there.[3]
