History of United Financial
United Financial Credit Union was formed in 1964 to serve a small group of tool and die workers in the Bridgeport area. What started out in the home of one of our founding members grew into our former main office of 49 years on Dixie Highway near Bridgeport.
Eventually, United Financial added a branch office which is now located on State Street in Saginaw Township. Our membership has expanded to not only include tool and die shops, but manufacturers, grocers, and several other organizations that we call sponsor groups.
