Incorrect address fee (and why)

As of July 1, 2010, we started charging a $5.00 monthly fee to any account that has an American 1 Federal Credit Union mailing returned to the credit union because of an incorrect address.

An account is flagged when a mailing is returned and members have 30 days to update the address before the fee will be imposed. Once the member submits a proper change of address, the account will no longer be charged the incorrect address fee. If the monthly incorrect address fee charged takes the account to a zero balance, the account will be closed.

We receive way too much mail that gets returned to the credit union because of incorrect information. Because of out-of-date addresses, too much postage and paper are wasted.

On your next branch visit, make sure we have your up-to-date address, phone number, and e-mail address on file. Or contact us and make sure your information is up to date. As always, the best option is signing up for e-statements – that way, your monthly statements and notices are e-mailed to you, helping us to reduce waste.

Chelsea’s Supermarket Sweep

Supermarket Sweep

Our Supermarket Sweep, a celebration of our Chelsea Branch’s grand opening in 2008, hit the Country Market store last Tuesday. Ten teams raced to grab almost $1,200 in food items for Faith in Action’s food pantry.

Congratulations to Chelsea’s Manpower, who took first place honors. Check out photos from the event at our Flickr photo gallery.

And check out the video from 2009’s Chelsea Supermarket Sweep.

Argyle Branch closing Dec. 19

Argyle Branch closing

Our Argyle Branch is closing at the end of the business day on Saturday, Dec. 19.

That Saturday, our Argyle lobby will be closed. The drive-through will be open during normal branch hours.

After December 19, head one block south to our new, bigger North St. Branch at 930 West North St. The new branch will have 4,500-sq. feet of supreme member services, including six drive-through lanes and two ATMs, plus a ton of more lobby and parking space.

Stay tuned for details on our North St. Branch grand opening event. In the meantime, check out the latest pictures from the North St. construction site.

So long, Felpausch



Yesterday was the final day of business at our Felpausch Branch.

The Felpausch grocery store, however, has been closed for some time now. So before we packed up and left, I grabbed a few pictures (above) of the empty store.

Pretty sad. Now that giant building will stand vacant until someone comes up with a better idea for it.

So long, Felpausch. It’s been a good run.

It’s coming along. And the inside? It’s huge.

Felpausch Branch closing Thursday

American 1 Federal Credit Union will be closing our Felpausch Branch doors forever on Thursday, Nov. 19 at the end of business hours.

Over the years, the Felpausch location has served us well, and we hate to see it go.

Our new North St. Branch, however, is on schedule to open its doors in December 2009, and will replace both the Felpausch Branch and the Argyle Branch. This new branch will provide more lobby space, more parking, and more drive thru lanes.

In the meantime, please use our Home Office at 718 E. Michigan Ave in downtown Jackson – a short 2 mile drive East from Felpausch. The Home Office is also open until 7 p.m. Monday-Friday and until 3 p.m. on Saturdays. There are several nearby ATMs, including Super Liquor at 1200 West Michigan Ave. and Kelly’s Quick Stop at 3797 West Michigan Ave.

Look for more details on our North St. Branch grand opening in the weeks to come.

Progress continues at North St.

North St. - materials

Construction is continuing at our new North St. Branch, and we have new photos to share.

O’Harrow Construction now has the base of the building set up, and is working on pouring concrete, setting the roof, and defining walls at the branch location.
