If you are in the process of transitioning to a new address, you can bring a utility bill from your new address or go to the Secretary of State to have your address updated. Keep in mind that P.O. Boxes are not considered a valid physical address. You will also need a $5.00 deposit (this is your buy-in to the credit union cooperative!) to open your savings account.

A legal guardian will need to be joint on the account until the minor turns 18.

You can change your address a couple of different ways. You can do this through our online banking system or by submitting an address update form. Through online banking, after you've logged in, hover over the ‘Info Center’ tab—this will bring up two columns.

What happens when my account goes dormant?
When it comes to dormant accounts, MCCU is required to follow the laws established by the state in which you reside. An account is considered dormant when it has experienced no activity for one year. When your account has been dormant for three years, MCCU is required to escheat all dormant funds to the State of Michigan (or the state in which you reside). To avoid having your account go dormant you will need to show some type activity on your account, which can be something as simple as transferring a penny between accounts.
Do I need a beneficiary on my account?
While it is not required, we recommend that all members have a designated beneficiary on their account. Having a beneficiary on your account makes it easier for trusted individual(s) to access the funds in the event of the account holder's death. You can add a beneficiary to your account by giving us a call or by clicking here.

Roth IRA Questions
What is a Roth IRA?
A Roth IRA is an individual retirement account created by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Roth IRA accounts are traditionally used as retirement savings accounts. They allow limited contributions to be made throughout the tax year and can be withdrawn within 5 years after establishing the account provided you are aged 59 1/2 or older.
Will I earn interest on my money if I put it into a Roth IRA?
Yes, you will earn interest on the funds that are on deposit at the credit union in your Roth IRA.
Who can contribute to a Roth IRA?
Those who work for a living can contribute to a Roth IRA account. The income must be derived from actual work efforts and compensation in the form of wages, tips, salaries, bonuses and professional fees.
How much can I contribute to my Roth IRA?
There are limits on the amount of income one can make during a given year—and the limits change from year to year. Please visit the IRS website for details.
Will my Roth IRA affect the amount that I can contribute to my employer-sponsored retirement plan?
No. The amount you contribute to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plans will not be affected by your Roth IRA.
Can I have both a traditional and a Roth IRA?
Yes, you can maintain both types of IRAs at the same time. You can even make contributions to both types of IRAs in the same year. But your contributions to both Roth and traditional IRAs cannot exceed the maximum contribution limit for all IRAs.

What are the charges for a checking account?
We are happy to report there are no charges attached to our checking accounts!
Can I get overdraft protection?
You sure can! MCCU currently offers three types of account protection (savings account, CheckGuard, and an Overdraft Protection Loan). One way to protect yourself from overdrawing your account is to set up your savings as a back-up. This enables you to use your own money to make sure your transactions are covered. This is a no-fee solution that we are happy to be able to offer our members! Another way to protect yourself is to enroll in our CheckGuard overdraft protection service. This service ensures any transactions or payments you have scheduled will be honored (up to $500) even if you don’t have the funds available in your account. If you do not elect to utilize this service, any transaction that hits your account will be rejected if there are no funds available. We also offer an Overdraft Protection Loan, a "safety net" line of credit that is there when you need it! Our Overdraft protection is a service we are glad to offer our members, but isn’t always the right fit for everyone as there is $30 fee associated with each transaction that overdrafts the account. If you’d like to speak with an MCCU representative about these options and find the best fit for you, contact us!
Does the credit union put a hold on checks?
For security purposes, MCCU will sometimes put holds on checks when necessary. Any supporting documentation you can provide about a check can help to avoid or reduce a hold.

An often-overlooked aspect of cosigning a loan is the fact that the loan will appear on both the person getting the loan and the cosigner's credit reports.

General Product and Service Questions
How are credit unions different from banks?
Credit unions are non-profit and exist to help people, not to make a profit. As such, all earnings are returned to their members in the form of high-interest savings and low rate loans. A volunteer board of directors, elected by the members, governs a credit union. With their vote, each member has a direct impact on the direction of the credit union. Also, "people helping people" is the credit union philosophy. A credit union's goal is to serve all of their members equally and provide charitable contributions to their community. Credit unions are owned by their members and each member gets one vote and an equal say in how the credit union is run.
