Credit Union Membership

When you become a Member, you’re in it for life. And this is definitely the kind of club you want to be in. We have an asset size of nearly $540 million and serve more than 56,000 Members. With us, your deposits are federally insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA), and backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. So, you can relax and have fun, knowing full-well that we’ve got your back (and front).

Beg. Just kidding, it’s even easier than that. To be a Mazuma Member you can open an account online, visit any Mazuma branch office, or call us at 913-574-5000. For every account that gets opened, an angel finally gets its wings. So, don’t delay.

The Benefits of Ownership

NCUA logo

When you become a Mazuma Member, you instantly become part owner. That’s right –we’re owned entirely by our Members. No shareholders. The only people who profit from our Members are our Members. Your Membership also entitles you to vote for our volunteer Board of Directors, who act on behalf of the Membership to help lead the credit union. We like to think of credit unions as a democratic entity. Ya know, kinda like our Forefathers did. That seemed to work out well.
