Founded in 1935, MemberFocus has a long history of serving members of the Dearborn and surrounding communities. Year after year, our products and services expand and improve; our enthusiasm for member service grows; our commitment to financial excellence holds true.
If you’re not already a member of our credit union here are five reasons why joining MemberFocus will be the best $5 you ever invest:
1. We’re a non-profit
MemberFocus is a non-profit financial institution. Simply put, we’re not trying to make money off of you. This allows us to offer better rates and fewer fees than for-profit banks.
2. You own the place
MemberFocus is also a cooperative. This means that all of our members are equal owners of the credit union with full voting rights on important credit union matters.
3. We make it simple
Being a member of our credit union is simple. It only takes $5 to join and there are no minimum balances or monthly fees to worry about. We offer all the conveniences of online and mobile banking to keep you connected to your money 24/7.
4. We’ve got a wide reach
We may be a small credit union but our members enjoy access to over 5,000 credit union locations nationwide. Not to mention nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs. That’s more than some of the biggest banks can offer.
5. We’re community minded
We give back to the communities we serve. Every year we sponsor as many community events and organizations as possible. We do our best to be a good neighbor and an active part of the community.
At MemberFocus your money is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000. The NCUA is an independent agency of the United States Government. No member of a federally insured credit union has ever taken a loss on their funds.
MemberFocus has repeatedly been awarded Bauer Financial Group’s prestigious 5-Star rating for financial safety and soundness.
