    Our Story



    People Driven Credit Union is a member-owned, full-service financial institution that has helped members and their families with money management since 1928. PDCU was founded in 1928 as Detroit Federal Employees Credit Union to serve as a primary field of membership for federal employees in the Detroit area and their families.


    In 2003, our charter expanded to include any government or public school district employee in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties, plus members of their families.


    In 2005, we changed our name to Peoples Trust Credit Union and expanded membership eligibility to include people who live, work, or worship in most Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties.


    In 2014, we merged with Community Driven Credit Union, which had a history of service to Ford Motor Company employees. We changed our name to People Driven Credit Union as part of this merger. At that time, we expanded our membership to include people who live, work, or worship in Genesee, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties.


    In 2023, we merged with Community Alliance Credit Union and expanded our membership once again to include all residents of the state of Michigan. We now serve over 26,000 members, all valued owners of the credit union. As a non-profit, cooperatively based organization, we offer an appealing array of low-cost financial services for our members.

    We are very grateful for the service that was provided as members of People Driven Credit Union!
