They Really Care About You!

I've been using MSUFCU for many years and had accounts with other places during this time. When you walk in you get a smile and a "how can I help you?". They don't try to sell you junk. Their rates are not always the best, but when not the best, very close to the best. Lose your ATM card? They make a new one in front of you and hand it to you for free. Their web banking is solid, and their app works well. The best thing I can say is they really do try to help. You're not just a number or a dollar sign.

Amazing member service!

Posted by: |

Many years ago I traveled to Key West with a few friends. As I was leaving an establishment, I was handed the debit card from someone else -- and it appeared that the establishment gave my card to the wrong person. I immediately called MSUFCU and explained the situation. They cancelled the charge from the establishment and had a new card on it's way to me, no questions asked. The card arrived the next day by noon, hand delivered by FedEx. I was taken aback at how quickly the credit union took action and solved the situation. What could have turned out horrible was handled perfectly! Even though I have moved from Michigan to Chicago, I stay with MSUFCU and will not change to a local credit union or nationwide bank. The member service staff at MSUFCU are unparalleled in their work and have secured me as a member for life.


I have had an account with MSUFCU for 9 years, including a credit card account with very reasonable interest rates. At one point a fraudulent charge showed up on the credit card and I contacted MSUFCU. They immediately removed the charge and I had a new card with new number in 3 days. I was also recently trying to obtain quotes for personal lines of credit, and MSUFCU's website was one of the few websites among many that made this easy. Also well-designed and understandable is the web-site, with ability to essentially never have to physically visit the bank. Would absolutely recommend.

Out Of State Beware

The credit union currently has good rates. However, beware if you are NOT a Michigan resident. MSUFCU will put a non-resident through the equivalent of a security investigation. They have incomparable applicant requirements in terms of identification and transfer of funds for non-Michigan customers. It may not be worth the hassle for anyone outside of Michigan.
