KALSEE Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned and operated by its members.

Your initial deposit of $1.00 opens your savings account, and is your share in the credit union. All savings accounts are insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the Federal Government. Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) funds are insured for an additional $250,000. Since 1954, KALSEE Credit Union has prided itself on being a trusted local financial partner and a terrific alternative to for-profit banks in Kalamazoo and Portage. We look forward to assisting you with your financial goals!
