Learn the history of Advia Credit Union

Credit Unions are member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperatives, designed to offer lower cost financial products and services. Credit Union membership is growing, and our industry has flourished since the philosophy of "people helping people" was founded with the first credit union in 1908. The services we offer are similar to those provided by banks, but our operating structure is very different. Our members are our owners; earnings are returned to them in the way of lower fees, better rates on deposits and loans and free access to convenient services.

Introducing Advia Credit Union ! On January 1, 2014, we became Advia Credit Union. This is the result of a powerful partnership between two very healthy and thriving credit unions - formerly First Community Federal Credit Union and E & A Credit Union. We are excited to offer our members new advantages, operating regionally throughout Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin.

With headquarters in Parchment, Michigan, we hold a total of twenty-four (24) full-service branch locations, as well as a growing number of our own ATMs. Members have access to surcharge-free ATM transactions via the CO-OP Network throughout the US and nearly 5,000 Service Center locations for basic transactions such as deposits and withdrawals. Our field of membership is available to those who live, work, or worship in the lower peninsula of Michigan, the counties of Green, Rock and Walworth, Wisconsin, as well as Winnebago County, Illinois. Our credit union is chartered by the state of Michigan and deposits are federally insured up to $250,000 per depositor by the National Credit Union Administration.

We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee made up of representatives from our field of membership. These individuals help guide and oversee our business operations to ensure that we fulfill our mission of providing lower cost and innovative financial services, and contribute to the sustainability of the communities where we live and work!

The recent partnership of our credit unions to become Advia Credit Union positions us within the top 3% of credit unions nationally in terms of financial soundness and asset size. Now serving over 100,000 members with assets over $1 Billion, we are poised to bring even better advantages to our communities and members. We are led by our President & CEO, Cheryl A. DeBoer, and employ a team of nearly 400 dedicated staff. We are committed to providing amazing service to our members no matter where they bank: in-branch, over the phone, or online 24 hours a day!

Experience the advantage via innovative financial solutions.
