New Buffalo Savings Bank Clients: Welcome to TCU! Learn more about the transition here.
Originally founded in 1931 as Teachers Credit Union by a group of teachers in South Bend, TCU has 57 locations and more than 300,000 members across Indiana and Michigan, making us one of the region's largest credit unions. We offer a range of traditional banking services, plus investments and insurance for individuals and businesses alike.
While banking is important, we think impacting the community is important too. That’s why TCU gives back to the communities we are a part of each year. We know that by building stronger communities, we will ensure better places to live, work and raise a family.
Our pledge is to continue providing an exceptional banking experience. You’ll enjoy banking at the same locations with the same friendly team. We look forward to getting to know you!
If you haven’t banked with a credit union before, you’re going to love it! For starters, you're more than a customer: You're a member. We think you'll find that membership has its benefits, from generous rewards programs to big investments in online and mobile technology.

You may have more than one membership based on the ownership of your accounts. Memberships are created with one primary member and other members (typically a spouse or other family member) added as a secondary member. As an example, if a secondary member of a membership opens additional products or services under only their name, a new membership would be added with this person as the primary member.
Please Note: your accounts under other memberships can be linked to your primary membership in Online Banking. For assistance, please visit a branch or reach out to TCU Member Services
You have been provided with a TCU membership number as well as new account numbers for all your accounts and loans. Your TCU member number identifies you as a member in our system. The accounts you have ownership of will have their own unique numbers and are identified under your membership.
Another way to explain this is that your membership is like a house and the accounts are like rooms inside the house. Each account/room can have different permissions/ownerships to allow access.
A primary share account is a savings account that is required by all members of a credit union. If you have a statement savings account with NBSB, it will automatically transition to a primary share with TCU. If you do not, you will need to complete the application for membership and one will be opened for you. A $5 minimum balance is required to maintain your membership. TCU will be funding the $5 on your behalf. In this case, a signature card and instructions will be included with your new member letter.
