UPDATE AS OF 5/1/20:
Governor Holcomb has reduced some restrictions effective 5/4/2020. However, the Michigan City restrictions have not yet been lifted by Mayor Perry. Therefore, lobbies are still currently closed. However, MACU's drive throughs remain open to serve our members' needs. We would continue to ask members to utilize our other electronic delivery systems (i.e. ATMs, Mobile Banking, Online Banking, Night Depository, etc.) as much as possible; however, should you need to see a Member Service Representative, we ask that you call to schedule an appointment. The Portage branch will follow suite with Michigan City. Thank you for your patience and for being a valued member of our credit union.
UPDATE AS OF 3/19/20
The safety of our members, our community, and employees is our number one priority. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely and will keep you apprised of any developments that affect MACU.
We understand that many of our members and friends in the community are having their financial situations negatively impacted by escalating concerns over the COVID-19 virus.
Reduction of staffing and hours may quickly take a financial toll on many of our members' finances. As a result, we'd like to do what we can to help lessen the financial burden in any way possible:
If there is any other way we can help you, please reach out. Please know we will do what we can to help you during this difficult time.

Due to escalating health concerns regarding the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), MACU is postponing the March 28 annual meeting. We will release details for rescheduling as soon as they become available. Thank you for your patience as we work together to keep our families and community safe and healthy.
MACU IS GOING GREEN
As part of our commitment to the community, we are doing what we can to reduce our footprint. Beginning February 1, 2020, we will no longer be mailing paper notices for transfers, overdraft protection, and nonsufficient funds. In addition, ODP and NSF fees will be updated to $35 per item.
College is expensive, and it can be overwhelming trying to pay for it. That’s why we developed our MACU scholarship program.
The deadline to apply is February 26.
8 great ways to start the year off right
Every year, most of us make resolutions to get fit in January. In fact, most gyms are packed in January with people that are ready to change their diet and fitness. However, those resolutions tend to get set aside when the hecticness of life sets in.
Car insurance is as close as MACU! You could save hundreds with our partner Liberty Mutual with special rates as MACU members.
As a MACU member, you have access to the TruStage® Auto & Home Insurance Program. That means an opportunity to save money on a policy issued by our partner Liberty Mutual. Your car is a big investment, so make sure it's protected at a great price.
Members Advantage Credit Union (MACU) is ending 2019 on a high note by making monetary donations to several local non-profits.
“As a community institution, it’s important that we do our part,” said Frank Beachnau, President of Members Advantage Credit Union. “Being able to care for our community the way we do is one of the things that I love about being part of a credit union, and being able to help during the holidays — a time that is especially hard for many families — makes it even more special.”
MACU has been a longtime supporter of the Michigan City Salvation Army and recently donated $2,000. The money will help further the Salvation Army’s mission in Michigan City, which includes, among other outreaches, helping feed nearly 800 local families.
Non-profit Steady Stitchers just received a $500 donation from MACU. Steady Stitchers uses donated finances and fabric to create various items for community members, including afghans and hats for preemies, backpacks, hats, scarves, mittens, walker and wheelchair totes, and more.
For the second year, MACU donated $500 to NewDay Foundation. NewDay’s mission is to help cancer patients as they struggle with everyday challenges. Donations are used to create “Bags of Hope” comprised of items that help patients cope during chemotherapy, as well as purchase and distribute coloring books, activity books, etc. to children in the hospital.
Bob Havens, MACU Executive Vice President, said, “As a credit union, we are humbled to be able to help our friends and neighbors in the way we do. Our community has so many worthy organizations, and we are honored to be able to help support the great work they do.”
