Michigan Credit Unions
COVID-19 Support Programs

During COVID-19, Michigan credit unions are taking preventative actions to limit the spread of the virus and are prepared to adapt as conditions continue to change.

The Michigan credit union community encourages consumers to take advantage of all remote banking services, including mobile apps and deposits, online banking and bill payment and ATMs and Video Teller Machines.

Additionally, the Small Business Administration announced that they will provide small businesses impacted by COVID-19 up to $2 Million in disaster assistance loans. Find out more here.

The following is a list of Michigan credit unions, their available options and any other offerings during the pandemic. This page will be updated as changes occur. If your credit union has a special offer to add, please email us

Also, to assist the MCUL and CUNA in understanding your great efforts, we ask you to complete this short CUNA Survey once you have determined the support measures you are planning on offering your membership.
