About Members First Credit Union
We’re going to tell you an incredible story: the story where a caring teacher meets committed manufacturer meets your financial needs.
Our journey started in 1936, the same year sunscreen was invented, Gone with the Wind was published, and Robert Redford was born. The enthusiastic Teachers’ Club of Midland County put in $50 towards the start of a cooperative. Donald Benfer, a passionate teacher, offered his junior high classroom for the first credit union office.
Fast forward to 2012, we joined forces with a trustworthy 64-year-old credit union created for the Clare Manufacturing Company and known for meeting members needs in Central Michigan.
Today, we are Members First Credit Union. We come to work every day because we want to help our members and communities. Imagine your perfect day. You’ve worked hard for this day and want it to be the best day ever. Does it involve suits and ties controlling your hard earned money, making it hard to save and even harder to spend? Or, are you at a farmer’s market with your family, shopping for a sweet ride, throwing the ball around the park, basically enjoying your time with the peace of mind that your credit union has your back. That’s what we want for you. On your perfect day, we want you to find your happy.
We're a credit union, not a bank.
