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. That’s right: we are 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 toward building an excellent financial future.


We Have a Long History of Serving NYC’s Everyday Heroes.

Keeping the Greatest City in the World moving forward, every day, requires heroic effort by hundreds of thousands of individuals. As an NYC institution that’s been around for over 100 years, we work every day to provide excellent service and support to the everyday heroes who serve New York City.

Our History And Mission

We Put the Community in "Your Local Community Credit Union".

As a not-for-profit cooperative, we’re deeply rooted in our community and the everyday heroes who serve it. Where traditional financial institutions are beholden to shareholders, we operate solely for the good of our members and communities—and we deliver on that by showing up for them when they need it most.


Take Ownership of Your Financial Future, in More Ways Than One.

When we say we’re different from regular banks, we mean it. Instead of answering to corporate stockholders, we are beholden to our members as shareholders of our credit union—which means that we always have your interests at heart and welcome your input when it comes to deciding the future of our credit union.


We’re Member-Driven Through and Through.

When you bank with MCU, you’re not just an account holder—you’re a shareholder. Your future is our future and your values are our values; we encourage each and every one of our members to raise their voice and take a hand in shaping the direction of our credit union community.


We Put Our Members Over Corporate Profits.

Our products and services are designed with members’ needs in mind—not corporate profits. Because we don’t answer to any stockholders, any profits we earn are directly cycled back to the community in the form of low rates, great products, and member resources.
