Understanding the Essence of Cooperative Finance

A Credit Union is a member-owned financial cooperative fostering thrift through savings and offers favorable interest rate loans. Our purpose is empowering our community.
Manned by dedicated professionals, the Credit Union office thrives under expert management. The volunteer-based Board of Directors, elected by members, provides strategic direction by setting policies. Operating independently, the Supervisory Committee ensures the financial integrity of the Credit Union.

Navigating Our History

Originally established in 1938 as the Teachers Credit Union and School Employees Credit Union, Midwest Regional Credit Union has a rich history of growth and transformation. It found its current home on the KCKCC campus in 1972. An expansion of its charter in 1995 by the Kansas Department of Credit Unions enabled Midwest Regional Credit Union to serve a broader community, including residents and workers in multiple counties. This expansion led to remarkable advancements in membership and product offerings. Notably, Midwest Regional Credit Union's operations are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), providing federal insurance coverage for members' accounts and offering peace of mind up to $250,000.
