Midwest Members Covid-19 Response
Emergency Relief Available Resources
As your Credit Union, Midwest Members Credit Union continues to monitor the coronavirus pandemic closely and understands the impact the virus has on the current economy and our members monthly financial budget. We want you to understand that your deposits with the credit union are safe and insured. MMCU is committed to our people helping people philosophy and will continue to stand by our members through these unforeseen times.
Access to Your Money
The safest and easiest way to conduct transactions and access your funds 24/7 is through our online banking services. If you don’t currently have access to our online services via mobile phone or home banking, now is a good time to initiate these services via the Midwest Members Credit Union website at www.midmembers.org or call 618-254-0605 to speak with one of our Financial Service Officers.
Midwest Members Credit Union is currently making preparations to open our branches and move slowly towards getting back to “normal.” We would like to thank all of our members for working with us during these unprecedented times. In preparation, we are working to ensure that our branches are as safe and healthy of an environment as possible. We are planning a phased in process and will open our branches for appointments beginning Monday June 1, 2020.
All teller transactions will need to continue to be conducted through the drive thru.

Protect Yourself From Cyber Scams
Scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the Coronavirus. They’re setting up websites to sell bogus products, and using fake emails, texts, and social media posts as a ruse to take your money and get your personal information. It is important to note that if we reach out to you, we will NEVER ask for confidential information such as your account number, password, personal identification number (PIN) or other account information. You can review the Federal Trade Commission’s advice for consumers at www.consumer.ftc.gov.
Remember, MMCU and our staff are here to ensure that we continue to serve our members through these uncertain times. We will be with our members day by day through these trying times and will be available for any questions or concerns that our members may have.
