Our products are designed to meet our members exactly where they are on the path to financial wellness. We’re dedicated to helping our members meet their financial goals—because we believe everyone deserves an exceptional financial future.

Member-Driven Community

When we say ‘member-driven’, we mean it. Every member has the same vote in the operations of our credit union—which means that, unlike for-profit institutions that prioritize corporate stakeholder profits, members get to shape the future of our organization.

Excellent Rates

Our members have access to competitive rates on a wide variety of products. Because we’re a credit union (and not a for-profit bank), our profits benefit our members in the form of great products and rates, and investments in the community.

Empowering Educational Resources

Members have access to our Financial Education Center that provides them with the knowledge they need—wherever they are in life—to achieve their financial goals.

Why MCU?

Discover the Credit Union Difference.

A credit union is a type of not-for-profit financial institution controlled by its members, the people who deposit money into it. We're member-owned, so we do not have to answer to shareholders whose goal is to maximize profits. Instead, credit unions return profits to their members in the form of more favorable interest rates, community programs, and unique products and services.

And we don’t stop there. We make sure that our members are empowered with the educational services they need to feel confident about their financial journey with us, and work towards building an excellent financial future.
