How can we help?
For a free membership information packet, contact us or call 312-751-3111. An initial deposit of at least $5.00 (equivalent to one share) opens your primary savings account and is required to maintain your membership. As long as your account remains in good standing, you are eligible for all membership benefits.
Important Information About Opening a New Account:
Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
This means that when you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, Social Security number, and your MWRDGC employee identification card to allow us to identify you. We may also ask for your driver's license (or government issued identification showing residence and bearing a photograph and signature).
At MWRD ECU you're not just a customer -- you're a member and you own shares. You and your fellow members own the place -- we answer to you.
We offer nearly all the same services as a bank, plus special perks. As a not-for-profit institution, any profits are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings yields and fewer/lower fees.
At our annual meeting, a volunteer Board of Directors is elected by and from the membership, so they represent the members’ best interest in Credit Union policies. And unlike for-profit banks, where stockholders vote according to the number of shares of stock they own, credit union elections are based on a one-member, one-vote structure.
