About Us

Our mission statement says it all. Founded in 1959, we continue to operate on the original credit union philosophy of "people helping people.” We bring savers and borrowers together to provide financial security by a professional, friendly staff.

In 1959, postal worker Dean Streeter, with several of his co-workers, made a decision that postal employees and other federal employees would benefit by a credit union. They knew the advantage of credit union membership. Fellow workers could help each other by pooling their savings and borrowing from one another. They petitioned the federal government, established our by-laws, and Blue Water Federal Credit Union was on its way.

Today the credit union can serve federal and postal employees who work in the counties of St. Clair, Huron, Sanilac, and Tuscola. Also included are the towns of Armada, Memphis, Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, New Haven, Richmond, and St. Clair Shores in Macomb County, as well as the towns of Clifford, Imlay City, and Lapeer in Lapeer County. Immediate family members of current credit union members and immediate family members of the above employees are also eligible for membership in the credit union.

Blue Water Federal Credit Union’s success depends on you, the member. Volunteers are the backbone of a credit union. There are many ways you can become involved. We have several committees, such as the Supervisory Committee, the Credit Committee, and the Board of Directors. If you have an interest in any of these volunteer positions call the credit union at 810-985-6993.
