More Family Now Eligible

Membership Eligibility

The MECE Credit Union family is growing to include even more of your loved ones! The updated family tree includes spouses of eligible members, now welcome to become members themselves.

Why it Matters
These individuals could always be joint account holders, but not primary account holders. This meant they couldn’t take
advantage of MECE Credit Union products like IRA and HSA accounts, which require contributions to come from the primary account holder… Until now!

Spread the Word
Next time you see them, make sure your newly eligible family members know the benefits of MECECU membership! Visit mececu.com to learn more today!

Capture the Love

Love was in the air this spring at MECECU. During our Capture the Love promotion, owners referred eligible family members to the credit union for a chance to win a $300 photography credit! A winner from each district was chosen, giving six families the opportunity to capture the love. One winning member put her prize toward her daughter’s wedding photos, truly embodying the theme of the promotion.

Thank You
We appreciate everyone who participated in our Capture the Love promotion. Keep an eye out for opportunities to refer your eligible family members to MECE Credit Union… And win prizes doing so!
