Generally speaking, Americans are a generous group. Once we meet our own financial needs, we start thinking about others who could benefit from what we’ve earned.
Everybody has a “dream car.” Most dream cars also come with a very hefty price tag and if you like a really expensive car, it is probably more than you will earn in one year of work.

At FORUM CU, we consistently receive a large amount of feedback from the credit union members. We have members completing surveys online and through the mail. Members give feedback during interactions in our branch locations, over the phone, while interacting in live chat, and in e-mail correspondences. Every piece of feedback left is reviewed, documented, and appreciated.
One of the most common topics we receive comments on is branch locations. Over the past month, one member commented that they would like to see a location in Muncie, and another commented that they would like to see a location in Franklin. Guess what, there are actually five branches in the city of Muncie that FORUM CU members can utilize. And there is also a branch in Franklin as well.
