In March 2015, U.S. New Mexico Federal Credit Union announced their name would be changing to U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union.[7] Earlier that year, U.S. Eagle merged with New Mexico Correctional Employees Federal Credit Union.[8] In December 2015, U.S. Eagle acquired the signage rights for Albuquerque Plaza.[9]
