College Scholarships

 College is expensive, and it can be overwhelming trying to pay for it. That’s why we developed our MACU scholarship program.

  • The Leona Bruno Scholarship, named for MACU's first manager, provides a high school senior with $1,000 for college.
    The winner is chosen based on scholastic achievement, integrity, service to their school, and service to their community.
  • The Gail Walker Memorial Scholarship, named for a long-serving board member, awards $1,000 to a high school senior, college freshman or sophomore who has demonstrated service to the community, job experience, and a GPA between 2.5 and 3.5.

The deadline to apply is February 15. Click here to apply.

Skip-A-Pay

With MACU's Skip-a-Pay program, you can choose one month to skip making a payment on your loan.*

Lobbies open by appointment only beginning Nov. 17

For the safety of our members, our community, and employees, all MACU branches will only be open by appointment effective tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17, 2020, until further notice.

Medicare Open Enrollment

Medicare open enrollment, also known as Medicare’s annual election period, runs from October 15 through December 7 each year. During this annual window, Medicare plan enrollees can reevaluate their coverage – whether it’s Original Medicare with supplemental drug coverage, or Medicare Advantage – and make changes or purchase new policies if they would like to do so.

During this limited Medicare open enrollment period, you can:

  • Switch from Original Medicare to Medicare Advantage (as long as you’re enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B and you live in the Medicare Advantage plan’s service area).
  • Switch from Medicare Advantage to Original Medicare (plus a Medicare Part D plan and possibly a Medigap plan).
  • Switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another.
  • Switch from one Medicare Part D prescription drug plan to another.
  • Enroll in a Medicare Part D plan if you didn’t enroll when you were first eligible for Medicare.

At MACU, we are pleased to offer our members the services of a Licensed Medicare Broker to walk you through the maze of options with Medicare insurance. Senior Advocate John “Hoppy” Hopkins, with the Senior Health Resource Center located onsite at Members Advantage Credit Union, is available as a free resource to you. Feel free to contact John at 219-406-8048 with any questions you may have, or to schedule an appointment with John at any of our locations, please call 219-874-6943.
